Lenovo gaming tablet and first revealed tips
On Weibo, Lenovo China Consumer Customer Marketing Director shared images of a tablet about 8 inches in size. One of the most striking details in these images is the front camera in the upper middle.
As you know, the Lenovo Legion gaming phonestands out with its front camera located in the middle. In this sense, it has also emerged that this small tablet from Lenovo is for gaming. If this possibility becomes a reality, the Lenovo gaming tablet will be equipped with a much larger cooling panel than gaming phones.
Lenovo also released the 11.5 and 12.6-inch Xiaoxin Tablet Pro and the 13-inch YOGA Pad Pro. It is a question of which processor Lenovo will include in this small member of the family, which includes the Snapdragon 870 processor on these large tablets. However, estimates are that this 8-inch tablet will not use such an ambitious processor.
The possibility that Lenovo will offer a price performance-oriented tablet instead of high gaming performance at this point is also among the predictions.
Although Lenovo’s enigmatic tablet is a competitor to the iPad mini 2021 in terms of size, it is unlikely to be in the same lane in terms of hardware. Powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic processor, the tablet features an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina IPS LCD display.
Although the tablet market collapsed after 2015, with the pandemic, tablets began to return to their old days. Android phone manufacturers are also starting to pay attention to the tablet market again after 2020.
Android tablets, especially those that competed with the iPad between 2011 and 2015, offered a good mobile gaming experience at that time. But both that time, Apple’s raising the bar with its own processor ended the road for Android tablets. Especially in those years, tablets offered as an alternative to portable computers suddenly left the square to Apple.
