Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus press renders and full specs leaked out

Lenovo is expected to reveal a couple of tablets next month at Mobile World Congress. Among them, the Tab3 Plus seems like a decent mid-range slab, which, according to our previous report, would be equipped with a Snapdragon 625 chipset.

A couple of official press renders and most of the tablet's specs have just emerged ahead of the slate's announcement at MWC 2017. Apart from the more than decent processor, the Lenovo Tab3 8 Plus is likely to pack 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card).

One of the downsides would be the fact that the slate will ship with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board, but on the bright side, the Tab3 8 Plus is powered by a generous 4,250 mAh battery and features Dolby Atmos stereo spekears. It also IP52 certified that makes it resistant to dust and water splashes.

Screen-wise, the slab sports an 8-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) resolution. It also packs an 8-megapixel camera in the back with LED flash, and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera in the front.

Lenovo will be launching two variations of the Tab3 8 Plus: Wi-Fi only (TB-8703F) and 4G LTE (TB-8703X). There's no word on prices or availability yet, but we'll certainly found out more next month, so stick around.

Any company that releases a tablet with less than 32gb does not deserve any publicity other than to shame them. It's 2017 not 2014

I think your standards are to low. Since tablets are larger, that means a typical user will place more apps, also likely transfer more video files do to having on a larger display. I would say an entry level tablet should have no less than 64GB while a mid-ranged or top tier option should be 128GB. All smartphones that are mid-rangers should be 64GB and top end models or those "claiming" to be premium, should be 128GB with a 256GB option. But not at some ridiculous cost. You are on the right track though and I agree these OEM simply use storage as an excuse to skimp on specs vs price. Cheap-tastic tablet that no one is hardly going to buy, yes maybe could have 16/32GB. But even the Amazon Fire at 8GB even if it is 49.99 is still lame.

Not enough people vote with their wallets to pile enough pressure to press home this point.

8-incher tablet and "the Tab3 8 Plus is powered by a generous 4,250 mAh battery" you call it generous? You are having a laugh right?
