With Huawei’s ongoing issues with the US government, the premium end of the Android tablet segment has been decidedly Samsung dominated of late, with the Korean company’s new Galaxy Tab S7 series being the latest, and most expensive yet to go on sale. Luckily, Lenovo has decided to take another stab at the premium tablet market with the Tab P11 Pro that it announced earlier today. Complete with an 11.5-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 730 processor (same as the Pixel 4a), quad speakers, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro starts from $499.
The big 11.5-inch OLED display has 2K resolution (2560 x 1600), up to 500 nits brightness, with support for HDR10, and Dolby Vision. Bolstering the media-viewing experience are the four JBL speakers with 2.5cc chambers and Doly Atmos optimization. The Tab P11 Pro features an aluminum unibody design with a 7.7mm thickness, 6.9mm bezels around each side of the display, and weighing in at 485g.
Under the hood is the Snapdragon 730 processor with 4GB/6GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage, and support for MicroSD cards up to 1TB. A 8,600mAh battery is said to provide enough juice for 15-hours of normal usage or video playback. There is support for WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and LTE connectivity, and you can also use a stylus (sold separately).
There are cameras, of course, with a dual-sensor arrangement on the front consisting of twin 8MP Fixed Focus cameras for video chat and selfies. The rear panel also sports a dual-camera setup in the form of a 13MP Auto-Focus sensor and a 5MP Fixed-Focus sensor with a 120° lens.
Priced at $499, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro will be available in Slate Grey and Platinum Grey colors. With Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ proving to be a little on the expensive side, Lenovo’s Tab P11 Pro could be the premium Android tablet that we’ve been looking for.
There’s no specific release day set right now, but we’ll update the post when Lenovo reveals the date.
