[IFA 2014] TAB S8 is Lenovo’s FIRST 8-inch Intel Atom Android Tablet at JUST $199
Quite unexpectedly, Lenovo has already issued its press release, outlining some of the new devices that the company is going to showcase here at Europe’s biggest tech event. One of them is the TAB S8, Lenovo’s first 8-inch Intel Atom Android Tablet.
The above pictures shows an overview look of the tablet, as well as of its specs and special features. Here’s how Lenovo itself boasts its product in the recent announcement:
“Lenovo created the TAB S8 for consumers who are looking for a stylish, slim and affordable Android tablet starting at just $199. At 8-inches, the TAB S8’s 1920×1200 infinity screen is sharper than FHD, while the One Glass Solution touch-panel technology provides a crystal clear viewing experience. The tablet’s ultra-slim bezel seamlessly merges the screen with the dark front panel, giving the TAB S8 a sleek, clean look.
The front panel also features a 1.6-megapixel HD camera for easy video chatting. Turn the TAB S8 around to reveal an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. The wide aperture f2.2 lens snaps sharp photos, even in low light. Pre-installed apps, like SHAREit, allow for easy and safe photo and file sharing.”
The Lenovo TAB S8 is Lenovo’s first 8-inch Android tablet powered by an Intel processor, sporting he Intel Atom Z3745 Processor with Intel Burst Performance Technology. The TAB S8 weighs just 0.65 pounds and is 0.31 inches thin. Here are some other features of the tablet:
- High-speed LTE (4G) connectivity and Wi-Fi for data connectivity
- Up to seven hours of battery life
- 64-bit technology compatibility
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of storage
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Dolby-enhanced dual front speakers
The Lenovo TAB S8 is said to be available beginning in September with models starting at $199 via major retailers and www.lenovo.com. I’m a Windows 8 lover myself, so I wonder whether Lenovo will be announcing some new Windows-tablets, as well, since the company is known to have been a supporter of Microsoft’s latest operating system.
