Following yesterday’s debut of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, Moto’s parent company has introduced some new Android hardware of its own.
Lenovo today took the wraps off of four new Android tablets in its Tab 4 series of devices. The Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10 share similar spec lists, with both devices boasting a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, and 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras for your tablet photography and video calling needs. Both devices also include two front-facing speakers.
On the software side, both the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10 run Android 7.0 Nougat. Lenovo has added some special software touches of its own, too, like a multi-user mode so that each person can set the tablet up just the way that they like it.
There are two key areas where these tablets differ. The Tab 4 8 features an 8-inch 1280x800 display and 4850mAh battery, while the Tab 4 10 has a 10.1-inch 1280x800 screen and beefier 7000mAh battery.
These family-focused tablets will launch globally in May with prices of €169 ($179 USD) for the Tab 4 8 and €179 ($190 USD) for the Tab 4 10.
And then there are the Tab 4 8 Plus and Tab 4 10 Plus tablets. These are higher-end, more design-conscious tablets with glass on both the front and back of the devices.
The spec lists for the Tab 4 Plus models include octa-core Snapdragon 625 processors, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD slot, dual front-facing speakers, fingerprint readers, and 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras.
Once again, the sizes of the screens and batteries are the big differentiators here. The Tab 4 8 Plus has an 8-inch 1920x1200 screen and 4850mAh battery, while the Tab 4 10 Plus has a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 display and 7000mAh battery.
Both the Tab 4 8 Plus and Tab 4 10 Plus will begin rolling out globally in May. Pricing will be set at €259 ($274 USD) for the Tab 4 8 Plus and €299 ($316 USD) for the Tab 4 10 Plus.
Finally, Lenovo has announced optional add-on packs for its new tablets. The Kid’s Pack adds a shock-resistant bumper, blue-light filter, and stickers. Lenovo also offers a Kid’s Account with kid-friendly content and parental controls.
The Productivity Pack adds a Bluetooth keyboard that also functions as a protective sleeve and stand. Lenovo’s productivity UI includes a task bar and optimization for mouse and keyboard operations.
