New Lenovo Tab M10 HD Release With Android 9.0 For $179

Lenovo released the first Full HD Lenovo Smart Tab M10 back in January, but tomorrow they'll release the HD version of a tablet with almost the same name, called Lenovo Tab M10, but we can call it Lenovo Tab M10 HD for the sake of clarity: https://www.lenovo.com/us/lenovo-tab-series/Tab-M10

Though it's not just the screen resolution that's different. Whereas the M10 Full HD is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, the M10 HD is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 processor. And the M10 HD is also launched with Android 9.0 Pie straight out of the box.

The specs for the Lenovo Tab M10 HD consists of a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and 300 nits brightness, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 32GB of eMCP storage, and support for microSD cards up to 256GB. You can see the benchmark scores for this version of the Lenovo Tab M10 HD below.

It's among the six lightest 10-inch Android tablets as it weighs just 480 grams, while the thickness is 8.45mm. The only color for the M10 is black.
