Lenovo has some interesting tablet launches lined up for 2024 based on recent leaks and announcements.
The company is continuing to innovate with detachable and convertible designs across both Android and Windows operating systems. Here’s what to expect from Lenovo’s tablet lineup next year.
ThinkBook Plus with Detachable Android Tablet Display
One of Lenovo’s most unique upcoming tablets is the ThinkBook Plus 2024. Leaked images reveal this 2-in-1 device features a display that detaches to become a standalone Android tablet.
The tablet connects to a keyboard base running Windows. This allows it to double as both a regular laptop and portable Android tablet. Users can access apps from both ecosystems in one device.
The Android tablet portion will likely feature touch and pen support for drawing and notes. It probably packs one of Intel’s latest processors and at least 4GB of RAM.
The concept is similar to past Asus prototypes but Lenovo seems poised to finally bring it to market. The ThinkBook Plus 2024 should debut at CES 2024 this January.

Upgraded IdeaPad Duet 5 Now with 13th Gen Intel CPUs
Lenovo is also upgrading its popular IdeaPad Duet 5 2-in-1 tablet for 2023. The new model bumps up to 13th generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors for better performance.
It also includes faster LPDDR4x RAM up to 16GB and larger SSD storage options up to 512GB.
The Duet 5 still sports a vivid 12.4-inch 2.5K touchscreen with 120Hz refresh rate. And it retains the detachable keyboard case and pen support of the original.
Look for the upgraded IdeaPad Duet 5 to hit store shelves at some point in 2024. It delivers a premium Windows tablet experience for both work and play.

New Entry-Level Tab M11 Tablet for 2023
Lenovo is reportedly prepping an affordable new Android tablet dubbed the Tab M11 for release in 2024. Expected to be priced under $200, this tablet will run Android 13 on a MediaTek Helio G88 processor.
It includes an 11-inch 1920 x 1200 LCD, up to 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and microSD expansion.
Dual 8MP rear cameras, an 8MP front camera, and four Dolby Atmos speakers provide capable media and entertainment features.
With 10 hours of expected battery life, the Tab M11 will be a decent entry-level option for those seeking a basic media consumption tablet on a budget.

More Refined Premium Tablet Experience
While Lenovo has some cool concepts in store, we also expect refinement of their premium tablet experience in 2024 and beyond.
The flagship Lenovo Tab P12 Pro from 2021 is due for an upgrade. Expect a sleeker design with smaller bezels, faster charging, improved quad speakers, and Snapdragon’s latest processor.
Software is another area where Lenovo can improve. A cleaner Android skin with fewer duplicative apps and unnecessary customizations would enable a smoother experience comparable to tablets from Samsung.
If Lenovo focuses on refining both hardware and software, they could have one of the best overall tablets on the market.
Lenovo is keeping things innovative in the tablet space. Between detachable concept devices, refreshed classics like the Duet 5, and more affordable options, they aim to appeal to a wide range of mobile computing needs in 2024 and beyond.
