Though Android tablets never really took off, Lenovo released them regularly over the years and managed to carve out a niche for itself with its cheap offerings. At MWC 2022, the company announced the third generation of its popular Lenovo Tab M10 Plus tablet with some important improvements that offer a better user experience.
With a narrow bezel design, the M10 Plus sports a 10.61-inch 2K IPS LCD panel capable of brightness levels of 400 nits – a slight improvement in size and resolution over the 10.3-inch FHD panel of the predecessor. To complete the immersive experience when viewing content, the tablet features Dolby Atmos-certified quad speakers.
The two-tone metal body and large display might not reflect the device’s budget nature, but the internals do. The M10 Plus features an eight-core MediaTek G80 chipset paired with 3/4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Lenovo will also sell an LTE variant of the device with a Snapdragon 680 chip in select markets.
