Lenovo debuts Tab 4 Series tablets at Mobile World Congress

Lenovo this week introduced its latest tablets, the Tab 4 Series, positioning the line as something that works for both adults as well as kids. Available in two sizes, the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10 feature 8-inch and 10-inch displays, respectively.

The everyone tablet

Stopping short of announcing a full sheet of specifications, Lenovo tells us that the 4 Series is a mainstream line of tablets with dual speakers and Dolby Atmos. Featuring HD displays and quad-core Snapdragon processors, the tablets also come with 2GB RAM.

The Tab 4 models run Android 7.0 Nougat and are expected to deliver up to 12 hours of battery life. The multi-user mode lets parents and children keep their own profiles; apps, settings, and customization is unique to the individual.

The design-forward ‘Plus’ variant

In addition to the standard 4 Series, Lenovo is also introducing a Plus version of the two tablets. Also offered in 8-inch and 10-inch sizes, more details are known about the duo.

The Tab 4 8 Plus and Tab 4 10 Plus will pack 64-bit octa-core processors (2GHz) with up to 4GB RAM and 32GB storage. Moreover, the tablets also feature fingerprint scanners, USB Type-C and Quick Charge 3.0. The displays are touted as being FHD IPS screens.

Optional Kid’s and Productivity Packs

Customers who want to tailor the tablet experience around children may wish to consider the Kid’s Accessory Pack. Featuring a shock-resistant bumper, blue-light filter, and stickers,  the bundle also provides curated content and parental controls.

The Productivity Pack, for its part, turns the tablets into a 2-in-1 “Android workhorse” via the Bluetooth keyboard that also functions as a protective sleeve and stand. Additionally, it includes a built-in productivity interface, features a taskbar and instant app switching, allows for multiple window support, and even mouse and keyboard settings.
