The market for Android tablets isn't all that strong, but Samsung's Tab series bucks the trend. Last year's Tab S7 delivered an excellent premium experience, while the Tab S7+ took Apple's iPad Pro head-on. If you've been eagerly awaiting successors to both of those tablets, a new leak suggests that this year's lineup might include three new models, each with a bigger display than the last.
Lenovo is an up-and-coming player in the Android world, having taken the Chinese smartphone market by storm in the last couple of years. Now that it owns Motorola, we'll likely be hearing the Lenovo name even more often over here in the US as the company seeks to expand the presence of its Android portfolio across the world.
This is probably especially true of tablets, which Lenovo has consistently been creating for a number of years now, and an area where Motorola has generally fallen flat. The Tab S8 is Lenovo's latest slate to run Android, and on paper it's a pretty beastly piece of kit.
Some companies like to make a show of their appearances at big tech conferences like IFA. Some of them just like to announce everything all at once, and Lenovo is squarely in the latter category. The company's only Android addition in Berlin is the Tab S8, but thanks to an interesting collection of specs and price tag, it's worth your attention. The 8-inch tablet is a decent mid-range device on paper, but the interesting part is that Lenovo has set the suggested retail price at $199.
As you might guess, the Tab 8 uses an 8-inch screen. This will be a full 1920x1200 16:10 IPS panel - not bad, not bad at all.
