Lenovo’s first Android tablet with an Intel-made Silicon Chip: Tab S

Are you thinking of buying a Lenovo tablet? The new Tab S is waiting for you and other buyers! As we have told you from the very beginning, Tab S8 comes with a 64-bit Intel CPU (a quad-core Atom Z3745, to be more precise), so here we are talking about Lenovo’s first Android tablet that comes with an Intel-made silicon inside. The chip is coming with Burst Performance Technology, which provides processing power on demand only, but don’t you imagine that this is all that we are getting! Not at all!

In fact, we have plenty of other interesting things to tell you about it, especially given the fact that Lenovo has already mentioned that we are talking about no more than $199 before taxes and subsidies, the tablet becoming available “via major retailers” and Lenovo itself in the next days.

Lenovo’s Tab S is our attention

This Tab S8 tablet that we have here comes with a 8” display that has a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels, packing no less than 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Regarding its 8MP rear camera with a f/2.2 sensor, you should know that it comes along with a secondary 1.6MP front-facing camera which is simply perfect for those of you who love selfies.

The tablet runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, but it won’t be able to make full use of the 64-bit architecture of the SoC – we all know that! We can only hope that the upcoming L version of Android will change the situation as long as Lenovo will try to update the firmware of the slate as soon as possible.

As for additional features, here we can find optional high-speed LTE (4G) connectivity, as well as Wi-Fi for data connectivity, not to mention that Lenovo promises up to seven hours of battery life per charge for its Tab S8 tablet model.
