The new Lenovo Tab 4 10 have been released in the US for $179, just days after the smaller 8-inch Lenovo Tab 4 8 of the same tablet family was released too:
This is a 4th generation model, but even so Lenovo Tab 4 10 is at least trying to be a little different. It is fundamentally a 10.1-inch Android 7.1 tablet, but it can also be bought with a keyboard cover, or a bumper case for kids complete with thick frames and an extra screen protector. A third optional accessory is just a regular folio case for the tablet.
Lenovo Tab 4 10 is a HD tablet with 1280 x 800 resolution at 350 nits max brightness, powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support.
Like nearly all Lenovo tablets of the last 3 years it has Dolby Atmos audio, and the stereo speakers are front facing. Battery life could be good, since it has a 7000 mAh battery inside, which is rated with a 10 hour battery life on this tablet. The charging time is provided as being 5 hours long.
The cameras are a 2MP front camera, and a 5MP rear camera, with additional specs also including a micro-USB port, a 3.5 mm audio combo jack, g-sensor, hall sensor, vibrator, and GPS.
And while there is a 4G LTE model of this tablet in some countries, the model that will be available for the near future is the Wi-Fi model with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi cover, and Bluetooth 4.0.
Lenovo’s newest Android 7.1 tablet weighs 505 grams, and is 8.4 mm thick, both of which are acceptable figures. As for features, it has the Android 7.1 apps, and also kids settings, if the tablet owner wants to restrict content, access, and set time limits for the use of it.
