The new 10.1-inch home tablet Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus will be priced from $299 when it is launched in the US in November, making it $200 cheaper than the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro that was launched at the same time last year. This is mainly because the Yoga Tab 3 Plus doesn’t have the built-in projector that the Tab 3 Pro has.
And it looks like Lenovo will offer the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus as both Android 6.0 and Windows 10 versions, just like with most of their other Yoga tablets. The only hardware difference between the Android 6.0 and Windows 10 versions of Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus seems to be that the Android version will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor (or at least the 4G LTE version will), while the Windows version will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.
Either way, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus is built as a home tablet, with a splash proof IP51 rating. It has a 10.1-inch screen with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, 32GB of storage, a built-in kickstand that contains a large 9300 mAh battery that gives it an 18 hour battery life, it has 4 JBL front facing speakers with Dolby Atmos, and 3GB of RAM.
So as a tablet for the home, this is a clever device.
Other important Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus specs include dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, MU-MIMO, two USB 3.0 ports, one micro-HDMI port, and a microSD card slot.
It also has a 5MP front camera, and a high resolution 13MP rear camera.
The weight beings at 637 grams for the Wi-Fi model of the Android version. We will update when this tablet is about to become available in North America.
