Lenovo’s new 8-inch Android 9.0 tablet Lenovo Tab M8 HD that we saw unveiled at the IFA trade show in Berlin in August, is now taking orders ahead of launch by December 15. The price of the M8 is $139:
Lenovo Tab M8 HD is unique with its 2.0 GHz quadcore MediaTek Helio A22 processor, the same processor as in the Xiaomi Redmi 6A. The other specs are much in line with this processor, with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, 32GB storage, and the 8-inch screen with a HD resolution display at 1280 x 800 with 350 nits brightness.
The rest of the Lenovo Tab M8 HD specs are single-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, a mono side speaker with Dolby Audio, and a 5000 mAh battery with a 12 hour battery life (measured by video playback).
It’s also equipped with a micro-USB 2.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack. The weight of this 8-inch Android 9.0 tablet is 305 grams, and the thickness is 8.15mm. The black color it’s available in is called Iron Grey.
So basically one of Lenovo’s entry level 8-inch Android tablets for 2019-2020. It has some strong competition though, which range from the Fire HD 8 to 8-inch Samsung tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) which costs about the same, has higher specs, and more power.
And for those who want even more goodies in an 8-inch tablet, there’s even the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen 8.0 (2019).
