Lenovo held a big event this week, probably replacing its IFA 2021 unveilings, showing off a variety of computers, but also new tablets. Their most important premiere involves their very first 5G tablet, the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 5G. We also get the Lenovo Tab P11 and we have details about them below.
Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 5G
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 5G is one of the most powerful Lenovo tablets unveiled lately, packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, which is quite the bump from the Snapdragon 730 predecessor. It’s paired with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, also double the storage of the P11 Pro. It weighs 565 grams and comes with a full metal body, that measures a mere 5.63 mm in thickness.
It can become a laptop if you attach a full size Lenovo keyboard to it with a 19 mm key pitch and 1.3 mm trackpad, plus integrated trackpad. The device also supports a Lenovo Precision Pen 3, that clips on the tablet magnetically and charges wirelessly. The tablet comes with a 12.6 inch AMOLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate and a generous resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
It also displays rich and accurate colors, with 107% coverage of the NTSC and also support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+. On board we find quad JBL speakers with Dolby Atmos and Lenovo Premium Audio Tuning. There’s also a 10.200 mAh battery with 45W fast charging. Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 5G runs on Android 11 out of the box and offers Project Unity support, basically pairing with a Windows 10 or Windows 11 device, having it serve as a second screen.
Prices start at $610.
Lenovo Tab P11 5G
The Lenovo Tab P11 5G is a more affordable model, closer to $500 rather than $600. This one isn’t coming to America, being meant for the EMEA region, with an October debut scheduled. It’s a bit smaller, at 11 inches with an IPS LCD panel with 2000 x 1200 pixel resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate. That makes it quite similar to the P11. Dolby Vision is also supported, but HDR10+ isn’t.
This time we find here a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, together with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The tablet supports keyboard add-ons and a stylus, the older Precision Pen 2, plus its USB-C port offers DisplayPort functionality, so video output is on the table. Quad JBL speakers are here, with Dolby Atmos technology and we also get a 7700 mAh battery, which can last up to 12 hours (video streaming).
It supports 20W fast charging and it’s lighter at 520 grams. The tablet comes in 3 colors and it’s made of plastic rather than metal.
