Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 leaks with high-res screen and hefty battery


At IFA 2016 next week, Lenovo is expected to unveil a new tablet line-up, including a refreshed Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 slate with a 10-inch 2560x1600 screen, running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Judging from the initial report by German website WinFuture.de, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 will be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of specs. The new slate will feature a high-res 10-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a resolution of 2560x1600, but reportedly won't impress with powerful hardware under the hood. The leak suggests a modest mid-range chip will power the Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10, namely the Snapdragon 650 clocked at 1.8 GHz, backed up by a generous 9,300 mAh battery which is promised to deliver around 18 hours of usage. Given the high-res screen and unimpressive silicon, the tablet will likely not perform well in scenarios where raw power is demanded, but it should be OK as a media device.

Weighing in at around 683 grams, The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus 10 will sport a mostly metal body with what looks like a plated leather back. The tablet will have 32 GB of internal memory on board, expandable via an MicroSD card slot, as well as a 13 MP rear-facing camera and a USB Type-C port. Other features include the now standard for the series JBL speakers and flexible hinge system, but no projector, apparently.

The tablet is expected to go on sale for $390 for the base Wi-Fi only model, and $450 for the LTE model.

People aren't using tablets in general now, based on the sales decline in the segment. But Android tablets I think are still doing well comparatively to other OSes.

Decline in sales does not necessarily correlate to people not using tablets. Actually, if you read the financial reports from those that are studying the tablet market they are saying the reason sales are down is due to it not being the same as the smartphone market. People are not turning over and buying new tablets every year or two years, instead they are buying one tablet and keeping it for multiple years. I mean there's a reason that there are still people out there holding on to an iPad 2 (which was released in 2011). Tablets in general have a much longer product life than smartphones, with Apple tablets having a much longer product life than Android. In fact, while global tablet sales are declining, Apple is seeing an increase in their tablet market share. The iPad 2, as I just mentioned, is STILL receiving the latest OS updates from Apple even though it's 5 years old. No Android tablet that I know of is matching that. I own a Nexus 10 that was released in 2012 and stopped receiving updates after Android 5.1. That is just a 3 year product life.

I'm not sure any Android tablets do any good web browsing. Not even as good as iPad, well I'm using Surface 3, and it kills all of those funny tablets on web surfing.

im using a tablet. only for gaming/manga reading/web browsing since my phone is too small and my laptop complete trash for gaming xdd i initially bought it for digital art but it completely sucked because of the performance and because of how clumsy it felt to draw on a glass surface. im seriously considering a cintiq-like display now xd if i had bought a phablet like note 4 instead of 5s, i easily would've lived without a tablet in my life. but yeah, i made a mistake. OOPS

Yes loads of Adults still use Android tablets, bigger screens while at home are much better, its just that over the last 2 years tablets last much longer, so dont need to upgrade for at least 3 or 4 years, thats why sales are down, not because no one is using them they just last longer.

At least the 652 surely would be much more ideal

I use my tablet for YouTube & web browsing with coffee mornings and late night e reading followed by more browsing. Definitely a must have for me. Now we just need Lenovo to give a damn about software updates. In the meantime I'll stick to my iPad pro as it performs these tasks very well.

I think SD 650/652 is rather OK, it perfoms similarly with SD 801 (2014 flagship level chip)
