Lenovo announced the 8-inch Android tablet Lenovo Tab 4 8 on February 27, and it is officially released in the US today on June 30, with a launch price of $129 from Lenovo.
The Lenovo Tab 4 8 is an 8-inch Android 7.1 tablet, powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD card support up to 128GB, and a HD display with 1280 x 800 resolution and 350 nits of brightness.
That actually makes Lenovo’s Tab 4 8 the first tablet to be launched with Android 7.1 Nougat yet.
The Lenovo Tab 4 8 released today has front facing stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, a micro-USB 2.0 port, a 3.5 mm audio combo jack, g-sensor, and hall sensor.
Internet connection is supplied by 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth 4.0. Lenovo Tab 4 8 battery life is stated as 10+ hours long, from a 4850 mAh Li-ion Polymer battery.
The weight of Lenovo’s new entry level 8-inch Android 7.1 tablet is a pretty decent 310 grams, while it is 8.2 mm thick, which is decent too.
Lenovo have two official but optional custom made accessories for the Lenovo Tab 4 8. The first one is the most visible, being the Tab 4 8 kids case, a bumper case that protects the tablet as well as the user, and also provides some more grip for kids tiny hands.
The other custom made accessory for this tablet is the folio case, but both accessories seems to be trailing a couple of week behind of today’s tablet launch.
