7 months after Lenovo unveiled the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus, it is finally seeing the launch in the US. But, just like the case was with the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus, the model that is now being released is different from the ones that were promised.
So instead of options of 3GB or 4GB of RAM, this 8-inch Android 7.1 tablet has 2GB RAM instead, and built-in 4G LTE instead of just Wi-Fi.
But other than that, the remaining specs are as promised. It has a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display with 390 nits brightness, is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor,a glass back cover and aluminum frame, 16GB storage, a 5MP front camera and a 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and stereo front-facing Dolby Atmos speakers.
Some modern features includes a fingerprint reader and a (USB 2.0) Type-C port, and even dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, with Bluetooth 4.2.
The Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus battery life is supposed to be 8+ hours said Lenovo back in February, from a Li-ion battery rated at 4850 mAh, with a 3 – 3.5 hours charging time, and QC 3.0 Fast Charge support.
Color options are black or white, with a weight of 300 grams, and a thickness of 7 mm. The design is unusual with the edges split in two, making the side speakers face forwards.
The price of this model of Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus upon release is $229.
