Well after Samsung launched its gigantic tablet, Galaxy View last year, it seems that it’s Lenovo’s turn to surprise us with an equally large tablet, marketed for school and office work. Apparently, Lenovo’s upcoming tablet appeared in benchmark tests on GFXBench and it packs a 18.4-inch display with QHD screen.
The benchmark test reveals that the upcoming tablet will come with higher-tier specs compared to Samsung’s View and a higher resolution, which is to be expected, considering the screen size. The tablet’s code name is PB2-690N, there’s no information on the official name yet.
Lenovo’s tablet will have a resolution of 2560x1440 (QHD) pixels, which comes down to 160 ppi density. Underneath the case, it will come with an octa-core, 1.8 GHz Qualcomm SoC, with an Adreno 510 GPU, as well as 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space.
The test reveals that the tablet will support Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi and will have proximity sensors. It might come with either Snapdragon 650 or Snapdragon 652 processor. The tablet is set to run on the latest Android build, namely Marshmallow 6.0.1.
8MP rear camera and 0.3MP front shooter
Lenovo will incorporate an 8MP camera on the back and 0.3MP shooter in the front. The cameras will support face detection and flash, but not auto-focus. By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy View came with only a rear camera of 2.1MP and f/2.2 aperture and didn’t have a front shooter. The Galaxy View’s display resolution was also lower: 1920x1080 pixels with a density of 120 ppi.
However, the 18.4 inch screen isn’t the largest seen on Lenovo tablets, in fact last year the company released a Windows 10 tablet with a 27-inch display, named YOGA Home 900. It had a lower resolution but packed 256GB for storage and 8GB of RAM.
Lenovo will host a press conference during Tech World 2016 on June 9, to launch multiple Moto-branded smartphones, as well as the highly anticipated Lenovo Project Tango phone. It’s highly likely that some information on the Lenovo tablet will be provided then.
