CES 2020 | Lenovo revamps Smart Tab M10 Android tablet, swapping Amazon Alexa for Google Assistant
Lenovo today announced the second iteration of its Smart Tab M10 Android tablet. This version of the tablet has opted for the Google Assistant instead of Amazon Alexa.
The Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus 2nd gen comes with a more compact Smart Charging Station that doubles as a speaker dock, turning the tablet into a smart speaker with a touch display.
That display is a 10.3-inch 1920x1200 IPS touchscreen that covers 70.3% of the NTSC gamut. The backlight averages 330 nits at its peak brightness, which should be bright enough for most indoor lighting environments.
The processor is a MediaTek Helio P22T Tab SoC, an octa-core chip with four ARM A53 cores at 2.3 GHz and four ARM A53 cores at 1.8 GHz. The tablet can be configured with 2 or 4 GB of RAM and either 32, 64, or 128 GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD). A 5000 mAh powers everything.
The Smart Tab M10 runs Android 9 Pie, which is a bit old at this point. Its relatively compact size (9.61 x 6.03 x 0.32 in) and light weight (1.01 lbs) should make it easy to handle. The tablet sports two Dolby Atmos-branded side speakers and connects wirelessly via 802.11ac Wifi and Bluetooth 5.0.
The Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus 2nd Gen will be available in April 2020 starting at US $189.99.
