Lenovo released the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus in USA today with a launch price of $309, which makes for a very tempting upper mid-range tablet: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/tablets/Lenovo-Tab-P11-Plus/
Lenovo Tab P11 Plus was announced during the spring and is an 11″ Android 11 tablet featuring a 2000 x 1200 Full HD resolution display at 400 nits brightness, with a 60 Hz refresh rate, and 70% NTSC.
It’s also the first tablet that’s powered by MediaTek’s octa-core 2.05 GHz Helio G90T processor and Mali-G76 GPU, together with 4GB LPDDR4x RAM, and even 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. So with a launch price of $309, that’s pretty good for an Android tablet if you ask me.
MicroSD cards are supported up to 256GB, or as much as 1TB in exFAT format.
The Lenovo Tab P11 Plus even has a 13MP rear camera with LED flash/video light, and a 8MP front camera. Which makes this the best camera tablet within its price range.
The cameras also brings facial unlocking with them. Lenovo has a histrory of some of the very best audio features on the tablets, and with the Tab P11 Plus we get 4 speakers at 1W each, with Dolby Atmos. The microphones are dual array mics with Smart Voice DSP middle-field voice recognition and background noise cancellation.
Lenovo Tab P11 Plus battery life is a very promising 12 hours long, measured by the video palyback industry standard. It has a 7700 mAh battery with PE 2.0 fast charge support (MediaTek Power Delivery), and ships with a 20W USB C port charger.
The port is a USB C 2.0 port with Power Delivery 3.0.
Tablet sensors on Lenovo’s Tab P11 Plus are an accelerometer, g-sensor, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, hall sensor, ToF sensor, and a vibrator.
I also has Wi-Fi 6, albeit single-band (1×1), BT 5.1, and support for the optional 4096 pressure level Lenovo Precision Pen 2, and pogo pins for the optional keyboard.
With a thickness of 7.5mm and weight of 490 grams, this tablet is portable too despite all the goodies inside.
Additional features also counts things like Google Kids Space if you want kids to use the tablet purely with apps that are approved for kids.
Put it all together and conclusion is obviously that the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus is going challenge Samsung in this size category, and offer a really desirable alternative.
