Joining its newly unveiled Chromebooks, IdeaPad, monitors, and other computing devices is Lenovo’s new Tab M7 and Tab M8 second-generation tablets. These budget slates give consumers new 7-inch and 8-inch Android Pie tablet options that strike a balance between features and price, offering nano-SIM support alongside up to Full HD displays, long battery life, GPS support, and more.
Lenovo Tab M7
The Tab M7, the smaller of the two new slates, features a 7-inch 1024 x 600 IPS display, 2GB of RAM (1GB in Go Edition), the MediaTekMT8765B 64-bit quad-core processor (LTE version), and up to 32GB of storage expandable via a microSD card slot.
As expected for a budget-tier tablet, the Tab M7 doesn’t pack many sensors — users get a G-Sensor and a vibration motor for vibrating alerts. Other features include 2MP front- and rear-facing cameras, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS (3G version only), FM radio, and up to 10 hours of usage per charge.
The Lenovo Tab M7 will be available in October starting at $89.99 USD.
Lenovo Tab M8
Consumers who need a tablet slightly larger and more substantial should check out the new Tab M8. This second-generation model features a larger 8-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, the MediaTek A22 Tab quad-core 2GHz processor, and Dolby Audio.
As with the Tab M7, the Tab M8 features GPS, G-sensor, and a 2MP front camera, but adds in a 5MP rear camera, additional sensors including ambient light and P-sensor, an IP5X rating against dust and water, plus Bluetooth 5.0 and up to 18 hours of battery life.
The Lenovo Tab M8 will be available in October starting at $109.99 USD, plus there will be a Full HD option starting at $159.99 USD.
