The new 11.5-inch Android tablet Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd gen) is finally being launched in the US, where it will be released on April 7th from $269:
This is an interesting Android tablet that fills a gap in the market, both in size and price.
It has a 11.5-inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 2000 x 1200, and while it ships with Android 12L during the date of the release, Lenovo has stated that they will provide two years of Android updates, in addition to the regular security updates.
Maximum brightness of the screen is 400 nits and the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
The Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd gen) model nr TB350FU that’s taking orders now, has specs such as the octa-core 2.2 GHz MediaTek Helio G99 processor and Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, with 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB UFS 2.2 storage.
But the bundle with both a keyboard and Lenovo Pen will turn this into an Android 2-in-1 for $369.
Or all the Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd gen) accessories can be bought separately. The price directly from Lenovo Store, is $25 for the Folio Case, $60 for the Precision Pen 2, and $90 for the Keyboard Pack. Lenovo is also offering the opportunity to buy it with 6 months financing too.
The other specs are good, as it features 4 speakers at 1W with Dolby Atmos, an 8MP front camera with face unlocking, a 13MP rear camera with LED flash/light, microSD card support up to 1TB, dual mics, and a 7700 mAh battery capacity sporting a 10 hour battery life and 3 hour charging.
Lenovo’s newest tablet even has Wi-Fi 6E. Other specs are Bluetooth 5.2, the tablet sensors accelerometer, ambient light sensor, coulomb counter, gyroscope, hall sensor, proximity sensor and an ERM vibrator.
Ports and plugs includes a USB C 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, and a pogo pin connector for the keyboard.
It’s light for its size and 520 grams, and thin too with a thickness of just 7.4mm.
Official accessories for the Tab P11 (2nd gen) are called Lenovo Folio Case for Tab P11, which is the cover with a pen holder on the center top of the tablet, there’s the pencil shaped Lenovo Precision Pen 2 (2023) with support for 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and finally the Lenovo Keyboard Pack for Tab P11 (2nd Gen).
The benchmark scores comes in where you expect it too, with a Geekbench 5 single-core score of typically around 540, and a multi-core score of around 1800.
So it’s great that Lenovo launched a tablet if this size where there’s currently an absence of other tablets, and at a price that makes it a low cost tablet of this size too.
