Lenovo announced their first rival to Samsung’s Android flagship tablets in years today, when they announced the brand new Lenovo Tab P11 Pro. Lenovo expects that they’ll be able to release this new tablet in November from €699.
It’s actually very similar in composition to the Samsung’s flagship tablets, as it’s thin, well equipped, and feature rich.
Lenovo’s new flagship tablet Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is an 11.5-inch Android 10 tablet that supports an optional rigid keyboard dock, the Lenovo Precision Pen 2 digitizer, a folio case, and a Smart Charging Station 2 dock.
The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro display is even an OLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution, 500 nits brightness, and a 108% color gamut. Another flagship feature is of course quad speakers by JBL with Dolby Atmos.
Powering the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro, is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, with options of 4GB RAM/128GB storage, or 6GB RAM/128GB storage.
Lenovo also says the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro battery life is 15 hours long from the 8600 mAh battery. The thickness ranges from 5.8mm at the thinnest to 7.7mm at the thickest, with a reasonable weight of 485 grams. Color options are dark grey or light silver.
Lenovo even borrowed a trick from Samsung and made a horizontal rear attachment for the digitizer pen, though with a pouch instead. And with the keyboard cover you get the kickstand as well.
Lenovo Tab P11 Pro also features highlights such as a side fingerprint reader as well as a facial recognition camera, dual mics, optional blurring of your background during video calls through two 8MP front cameras, while it also has a 13MP rear camera with another 5MP wide angle rear camera.
Connectivity comes in the form of Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, USB C (3.1), microSD card support up to 1TB in exFAT, and optional 4G LTE.
A good set of tablet sensors can be found on the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro too, including accelerometer, hall sensor, e-compass, ambient light sensor, gyro, time-of-flight sensor, GPS/GLONASS/BDS, and vibrator.
The Samsug Galaxy Tab S7 tablets are in the process of being released these worldwide these days, but for those willing to wait until November, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro offers an alternative.
