Samsung has been the standard for Android tablets. But Lenovo wants to change that with its new Lenovo Tab P12 PRO and Tab P11 5G. These tablets combine 2-in-1 portability, productivity, and multimedia.
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 12.6 inch tablet has an OLED display and Snapdragon 870 processor by Qualcomm. It starts at 899.99 Euros. The Lenovo Tab 5G 11-inch model comes with a Snapdragon 705G processor and 5G support. It will be available for EUR 499 in Europe.
Lenovo Tab P12 Pro
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro offers the same specs as a flagship smartphone but on a larger screen that also allows for quad speakers. A battery with a 10,200 mAh capacity and a POGO pin connector to allow for an optional detachable keyboard.
This tablet’s most striking feature is its screen. It has a 12.6 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The screen supports HDR10 +, Dolby Vision technologies, and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Brightness can reach 600 nits.
The new high-end tablet from Lenovo also has a USB Type-C port and a micro SD card reader. It features a 13-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel wide-angle to rear, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. This fixed focus camera is equipped with a time of flight depth sensor.
Although the tablet can charge at 45 watts fast, Lenovo includes only a 30W charger. The tablet is 565g and measures 285.61×184.53x 5.63mm.
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro features LPDDR5 RAM with UFS 23.1 storage. Lenovo will also offer 6GB RAM and 128GB storage options, as well as 8GB and 256GB configurations. Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, and Miracast technology will all be supported for connectivity. In select markets, Lenovo will offer models with a 5G wireless internet network starting at EUR 899
For pressure-sensitive input, the tablet can be used with the optional Lenovo Precision Pen 3. Lenovo claims that the stylus can be attached magnetically to the tablet’s back for charging. This position supports wireless charging.
The new software will be introduced by the company to improve the interaction between its Android tablets, and Windows PCs. Project Unity will be available with the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro. This tablet can wirelessly connect to a Project Unity-running PC. This will allow you to mirror your desktop or extend it to the tablet. This doesn’t mean that the tablet will become silent. Project Unity can still be used, so you can continue running Android apps.
Lenovo Tab P11 5G
The 11-inch tablet has an IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels, a refresh rate of 60 Hz, brightness up to 400 nits, and LPDDR4 memory. It also features a 7,700mAh battery and a 20W fast charger. The tablet has a single 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front cam. It is smaller and more affordable than the P12 Pro, but it’s still powerful.
It still offers similar features such as quadruple speakers and support for an optional detachable keypad. There is also a pressure-sensitive stylus (the Lenovo Precision Pen 2 here). The P11 5G comes in memory and storage options of either 6 GB or 128 GB, 8 GB or 256 GB.
The tablet does have one thing in common: it supports 5G networks, although only sub-6GHz band 5G network bands. The Lenovo Tab 5G measures 258x163x7.9mm and is 520g in weight.
