Lenovo’s tablet portfolio could soon see another member as a new model called the Lenovo Tab Extreme has been spotted on the Google Play Console. The listing suggests a flagship-level tablet powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset.
The processor appears to be accompanied by other high-end specs that represent a significant upgrade over previous Lenovo tablets. According to the listing, the Lenovo Tab Extreme’s screen has a resolution of 3,000 x 1,876 at 320ppi. In particular, the resolution is higher than that of the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro at 1600 x 2560.
The screen appears to have symmetrical bezels, with the top one apparently housing a selfie camera. This arrangement is not uncommon in many tablets from Lenovo and other brands, although the specs of the front camera remain a mystery for now.
Under the hood, the processor is paired with 8 GB of RAM. On the software side, the tablet appears to ship with Android 13 out of the box. If successful, the Lenovo Tab Extreme will be the first tablet to run the latest version of Android out of the box, assuming it hits the market before Google’s upcoming Pixel tablet, according to XDA Developers (opens in new tab).
While the market for high-end tablets remains limited these days, with devices like the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus at the top, Lenovo’s recent string of tablet releases gives us hope for more top-end models in the future. However, Lenovo needs to address a few drawbacks, such as the lack of regular software updates for its tablets. Even the Tab P12 Pro, the company’s best Android tablet to date, suffered from this trade-off, despite its otherwise beefy specs.
With the Lenovo Tab Extreme supposedly launching with Android 13 pre-installed, things are looking a little optimistic for Lenovo’s tablet line.
Unfortunately, the Play Store listing reveals nothing about the back panel of the device, leaving us in the dark about the design and specs of the main camera.
The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro combines an incredible 12.6-inch, 120 Hz AMOLED display with high-quality construction. The Snapdragon 870 chipset will keep up with almost everything, and Project Unity makes it easier than ever to convert your tablet into a portable display.
