Lenovo’s latest tablets have Android 12L and competitive prices

Lenovo is upping its game for those looking to both browse the internet on the go and comfortably work from home with the introduction of two new devices: two new Android tablets that could be pretty decent iPad alternatives.

Android tablets aren’t a huge focus for many brands these days, so it’s always nice to see Lenovo remain committed to the form factor. But are its latest releases any good? Here’s what you’ll find with the new Lenovo Tab P11 and Tan P11 Pro.

Both tablets are the second iterations of the P11 family and, as such, boast a handful of small optimizations and improvements from the previous iterations. The base model sports a MediaTek Helio G99 SoC, while the Pro version runs on the more capable MediaTek Kompanio 1300T. The displays for both devices vary immensely; the base version has an 11.5-inch LCD 2K screen, while the Tab P11 Pro sports a slightly smaller 11.2-inch OLED 2.5K display that supports HDR10+.

On just about every level (other than the slight screen size difference,) the Tab P11 Pro outdoes the base model. Both offer the usual slew of RAM and storage options, with the Tab P11 starting at 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and ranging up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The Tab P11 Pro starts at 4GB RAM and 128GB storage and can go all the way up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.

While neither device is a major technical powerhouse, both certainly bring things to the table, especially when considering that they’re both made with keyboard and smart pencil support in mind. Additionally, they run on Android 12L but will be supported up to Android 14.

Both the Tab P11 and Tab P11 Pro are currently only available in Europe and will be for sale later this year. The Tab P11 Pro will retail starting at 499 euros in September. Those looking for the base model of the second-gen Tab P11 will need to wait until November when it will retail starting at 299 euros.

Lenovo’s $230 Tab P11 takes care of your stay-at-home tablet needs

Lenovo wants to draw you away from the allure of an iPad, and into the waiting arms of its newest Android tablet, the Lenovo Tab P11. It’s doing so with a temptingly low price, and a focus on features many want at the moment -- high definition streaming, video calls, and a special family-friendly feature to keep the kids occupied safely.

Announced for CES 2021, the Lenovo Tab P11 will cost just $229 when it is made available during January, and for this, you get an 11-inch tablet made from aluminum in either Slate Grey or Platinum Grey colors. The back of the tablet has a two-tone design, which is reminiscent of Lenovo’s pretty Duet IdeaPad Chromebook.

The new series of tablets are really aimed at offering value for money -- though we don't yet know the pricing for the Lenovo Tab M10 and Lenovo Tab P10.

Ahead of February's Mobile World Congress hullabaloo, Lenovo's Tab3 8 Plus leaked in all its glory and, from the looks of things, it seems like a solid midrange offering in the Android tablet realm, reports Italian site Notebook Italia.

On the outside, the Tab3 8 Plus will reportedly feature an 8-inch, 1,920 x 1,200 resolution display, with Dolby Atmos stereo speakers on either the top or bottom of the display -- or left and right, depending on how you hold the tablet. An 8-megapixel camera with LED flash sits around back, while the 5MP selfie snapper should be just fine for video chats and the like.
