As the official introduction is getting closer and closer, each day seems to bring new details about Lenovo’s upcoming tablet, the Tab3 8 Plus. Initially, the first rumors about it started spreading back in September, but here we are, in February, and it still wasn’t announced!
After a benchmark was spotted online yesterday, things got even better today, since the full spec sheet, alongside a set of official press renders were made available.
It seems that the Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus will be available in two versions: Wi-Fi only (TB-8703F) and 4G LTE (TB-8703X). Otherwise, these are the only differences between these tablets, since both models feature an 8″ display, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Things remain unchanged under the hood as well, where we have a Snapdragon 625 chip, with 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, expandable, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot. On the back, there’s an 8 MP camera, aided by an LED flash, while on the front, the Tab3 8 Plus will have a 5 MP unit.
Moving on, the tablet comes with stereo speakers using the Dolby Atmos technology, while a 4,250 mAh battery is there to keep the lights on. Finally, as you probably guessed, the operating system is Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Another interesting feature of this tablet is the IP52 certification, making it resistant against dust, as well as vertically dripping water. According to the manufacturer, the latter “shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at an angle of 15° from its normal position”.
The Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus will be available in Silver and Blue, with a special “translucent” finish, and it should retail for around €150 in Europe. Most likely, it will be officially introduced at the end of the month, during the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona.
