Lenovo Prepping “Giant Tablet”, That Comes With Android on Board; Benchmark Leak Confirms It
Lenovo has been to tablets what Samsung has been to phones over the past half a decade: a company willing to experiment with each and every format out there. The Yoga series has contorted its way to fame, in a variety of formats, but experiments continue. Now Lenovo is ready to release a “giant tablet”, possibly for binge watching and other such tasks.
The largest model they unveiled so far was the Lenovo Yoga Home 900, that came last October, with a 27 inch screen and Windows 10. The newcomer is a bit smaller, at 18.4 inches and it has just leaked via GFXBench. The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and feels a bit like the Galaxy View from Samsung. Codenamed Lenovo PB2-690N, the new product brings a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor (or maybe Snapdragon 652), 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
It also has a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and these hardcore specs are a bit too much for a typical video watching machine. It may end up as a gaming rig or a designer’s tool, if there’s a stylus in the mix. Perhaps it’s an enterprise product, but opting for Android makes little sense then…
