IFA 2014: 8in Lenovo Tab S8 rocks Android, semi-decent specs

IFA 2014: 8in Lenovo Tab S8 rocks Android, semi-decent specsWe’re eagerly awaiting more on the Lenovo Vibe X2 smartphone, currently pencilled in for launch tomorrow.

In the meantime, Lenovo has lifted the lid on its latest Android tablet, the Tab S8. Despite being “affordable”, the specs are actually slightly better than you might imagine. More words below.

As the name probably suggests, Lenovo Tab S8 specs include an 8in display, the 8in category currently booming as phablets relentlessly cannibalise the 7in sector.

Lenovo proudly boasts that the Tab S8’s resolution is “sharper than FHD” – but only just at 1920 x 1200. That won’t worry Samsung's 2560 x 1600 Tab S range too much.

Other Lenovo Tab S8 specs include a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP rear camera, 1.6MP front shooter, dual front stereo speakers, KitKat Android 4.4, and the promise of seven hours of battery life.

Lenovo doesn’t mention much – or indeed anything – about geographical availability, but says the Tab S8 will be released “in September” (hey, that’s this month) with a price tag of $199.

The Chinese manufacturer also announced the Lenovo Y70 Touch at IFA 2014, its “first 17in touch laptop”, alongside the ERAZER X315, a desktop gaming device with “blazing fast graphics”. For more on those, hit up the official Lenovo IFA 2014 press release.
