You can now pre-order a Lenovo Tab 4 in the US

There’s an Android tablet for every size and price. While that does make choosing a bit more of a chore, it also means that there’s a tablet to match every need and every budget. Don’t need all the bells and whistles of a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3? Want something a bit more functional than an Amazon Fire? What you might want, instead, is one of Lenovo’s new Tab 4 series of Android tablets, two of which are fortunately now available for pre-order in the US.

Announced late February at MWC 2017, the Lenovo Tab 4 isn’t going to hold a candle to the Galaxy Tab S3 in terms of features and costs nearly twice as much as an Amazon Fire. However, it might hit just the right middle ground for users looking for a serviceable Android tablet that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Lenovo actually announced four tablets at the last MWC, two of which are “Plus” models with slightly higher specs. These are not those tablets. Instead, what we have here are two mid-range tablets, in 8 and 10.1-inch screen sizes. Here’s a rundown of those juicy specs:

Lenovo Tab 4 8.0

• Operating System: Android 7.0 Nougat
• CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, 1.4 GHz quad-core
• RAM: 2 GB
• Storage: 16 or 32 GB
• Display: 8.0 inches, 1280×800 IPS LCD
• Main Camera: 5 MP Autofocus
• Secondary Camera: 2 MP Fixed Focus
• Battery: 4,850 mAh
• Dimensions: 211 mm x 124 mm x 8.2 mm
• Weight: 310 g

Lenovo Tab 4 10.1

• Operating System: Android 7.0 Nougat
• CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, 1.4 GHz quad-core
• RAM: 2 GB
• Storage: 16 or 32 GB
• Display: 10.1 inches, 1280×800 IPS LCD
• Main Camera: 5 MP Autofocus
• Secondary Camera: 2 MP Fixed Focus
• Battery: 7,000 mAh
• Dimensions: 247 mm x 171 mm x 8.3 mm
• Weight: 500 g

One of the neat things about Lenovo’s new Tab 4 series ais that you don’t have to buy a separate Kids Edition if you need something for young tykes to use. You can opt for a Kids Pack addon to get a shock-proof bumper you can simply slap on when needed, as well as a suite of child-friendly software and parental controls.

Of course, the greatest pull of these tablets are their prices. The Lenovo Tab 4 8.0,. for example, goes for $129.99 while its larger 10.1-inch sibling costs $179.99, both well below a fourth of a Galaxy Tab S3.
