After launching the 10″ Tab 4 last month, Lenovo has finally released the 8″ version of their latest tablet at Harvey Norman (who now sell the 10″ version too), The Good Guys and of course their own Australian website.
The tablet is selling at an RRRP of $249 though you’ll save a $1 at Harvey Norman and offer a multimedia friendly tablet with a nice Hight Definition IPS LCD display, Dolby Atmos compatible sound and a decently large, up to 10 hour battery life. The compact 8″ size is heavily favoured for anyone wanting a nice light (it’s a mere 310 grams), thin (just 8.3 mm) tablet that will let you watch videos or surf the web comfortably.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor and 2GB of RAM the tablet includes 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot that will take cards up to 128GB – good news for a long flight or to give to the kids for a long car trip. Full specs include:
- 8″ 1280 x 800 IPS display
- 1.4GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 with Adreno 308 GPU
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage with MicroSD up to 128GB
- 5MP AF rear camera, 2MP fixed focus front facing camera
- GPS, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0
- LTE version available
- 4850mAh battery
- 211 x 124 x 8.3mm @ 310grams
Disappointingly, there’s now word on the ‘Plus’ versions of the Tab 4 series tablets that Lenovo announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. Lenovo expected to launch both the standard and Plus Tab 4 series in June, but we’re still waiting on the Plus series to appear – you can bet we’ll be checking in with Lenovo to find out whether their plans have changed.
