Lenovo launched a new batch of tablets today, including the Yoga Tab 13, Yoga Tab 11 and Tab P11 Plus. It has also refreshed its low-cost offering, the Lenovo Tab M8, with some new hardware. Lenovo offers the tablet in two variants, one of which includes two pogo pins on the chassis. It lets users dock the Tab M8 on the optional Smart Charger accessory, which keeps it powered at all times via a micro USB port.

The Lenovo Tab M8 packs an 8-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1,200 x 800 pixels and a peak brightness of 350 nits. A MediaTek Helio P22 SoC powers the tablet, along with up to 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded via a micro SD card. The Lenovo Tab M8 draws power from a 5,100mAh battery that is not compatible with any fast charging standard. At the very least, it ships with a USB Type-C port, which is a significant improvement over its predecessor. Lenovo says that one can get up to 15 hours of video playback out of a single charge.

Moving on to optics, the Lenovo Tab M8 gets a solitary 5MP sensor at the back and a 2MP selfie camera. Connectivity options include 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. Interestingly enough, the tablet also supports FM radio. Lastly, the Lenovo Tab M8 runs Android 11 out of the box and includes a 3.5mm audio jack. Lenovo hasn't specified just how much the new Tab M8 refresh will cost, but we can expect it to retail at around US$150. It will be available for purchase later this year in select markets, which does not include the United States, unfortunately.
