Not pleased with the current bevy of tablet options? You may soon be getting another from Lenovo. Images of the Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus have now been leaked, and according to reports, the device will feature an 8-inch Full-HD display, 3GB of RAM, and three unique storage combinations with microSD card support.
This latest tablet is an upgrade over its original line of economical tablets released back in February. The 8 Plus will be much like its predecessor (the 8), but with a few notable upgrades. Both the Full-HD panel and the amount of RAM are improvements over the original Lenovo Tab3 8, but there are a number of other leaked specs we can share as well — the Plus will allegedly boast an 8MP main camera with LED flash, a 5MP front camera, and feature 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity.
But perhaps most notably, the Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus will have a newer chipset. Abandoning the quad-core MediaTek one found in the old model, Lenovo is now using an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. Not only is this a faster processor, but it’s constructed using “a superior 14nm process,” as GSM Arena reports. It’s also an unusual choice for a relatively budget tablet, and should also greatly improve the battery life of the new tablet.
Reports suggest that the device will still maintain a relatively sleek design despite all these improvements, weighing in at just 330 grams and measuring just 7.97 millimeters thick. It’s unclear how much the 8 Plus will cost, but it will likely be a bit more than the Tab3 8, which originally set consumers back $149 for the LTE model. We’ve yet to see whether the other two tablets in the family (the Lenovo Tab3 7 and Lenovo Tab3 10) will also have Plus units of their own.
