Lenovo’s entry level budget tablet Lenovo Tab3 7 has now been released in the US with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, starting at just under $99: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-TAB3-A7-Marshmallow-ZA110158US/
Believe it or not, this is actually the first 7-inch tablet so far to be released with Android 6.0, even though Android 6.0 was released 9 months ago on October 5, 2015. And it’s the only other 7-inch tablet to run Android 6.0 too, with the other tablet being the Nexus 7 FHD, which was one of the first tablet to be updated to run the Marshmallow OS.
Lenovo announced the Lenovo Tab3 7 on February 21 this year, and originally said they would release it in June, but now it’s finally available.
The specifications are entry level, but the Tab3 7 still has some stand out features in addition to Android 6.0, such as the splash-proof IP52 rated P2i nano coating on the tablet, that although doesn’t make it entirely waterproof, at least makes it more rugged against the elements. It also has blue light reduction filter, kids mode, gesture shortcuts for access to apps, and multi-user profiles.
Lenovo Tab3 7 is powered by the quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek 8161 processor, has 1GB of DDR3 RAM, and 16GB of storage with microSD card support.
This 7-inch tablet has 1024 x 600 resolution, a Dolby Atmos speaker, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, and a 3450 mAh battery capacity that gives the Lenovo Tab3 7 a 9 hour battery life.
For Internet connections it has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, while the included sensors are g-sensor and vibrator.
The weight of the Tab3 7 is 260 grams, while the thickness is 8.8 mm. As you may notice, the bezels are very narrow on it, which maximizes the use of the display while making the tablet itself as small as possible.
