The Lenovo subsidiary reportedly has a new tablet in the works. It features a "productivity mode" option that makes the user interface feel more like that of a traditional PC.

Motorola is back in the tablet game, folks! Android Police reports that a trusted source has provided information, including a single screenshot, on a new device the company is working on. There aren't many details included in the report, but the screenshot does reveal one of the tablet's main features.

That feature is called "productivity mode" and it is a very simple on/off type of deal. Tapping the toggle switch on allows apps to be pinned to the taskbar, where users can switch between them without having to minimize their currently active apps. It also allows apps to be used side by side. Productivity mode appears to work similar to how the taskbar functions on the Android-based Remix OS, or on Windows 10.

Unfortunately, that's about all that is known about Motorola' upcoming tablet. Most of its specs, including the processor type, amount of RAM, and storage capacity, are a mystery. Android Police's source did mention to them that the tablet has a display in the 9- to 10-inch range, and that it has a "premium look and feel." Some models may offer cellular connectivity, the website believes.

A release date and price are also unknown at this time. Essentially, all we really know is what the leaked screenshot shows. Of course, if any new details surface we will report on them as soon as possible.
