Lenovo today announced at the 2014 IFA Consumer Electronics Unlimited show in Berlin a portfolio of tablets and PCs.
The new lineup kicks off with the TAB S8, Lenovo’s first Intel-powered Android tablet. Lenovo also announced two new high-performance gaming PCs: the Y70 Touch, Lenovo’s first 17-inch touch laptop with the latest processor and graphics technology for HD gaming, and the ERAZER X315, Lenovo’s latest affordable desktop gaming PCs.
The slim TAB S8 Android tablet is starting at $199. At 8-inches, the TAB S8’s 1920x1200 infinity screen is sharper than FHD, while the One Glass Solution touch-panel technology provides a clear viewing experience. The front panel also features a 1.6-megapixel HD camera. Turn the TAB S8 around to reveal an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. The wide aperture f2.2 lens snaps sharp photos, even in low light. Pre-installed apps, like SHAREit, allow for photo and file sharing.
The Lenovo TAB S8 marks Lenovo’s first 8-inch Android tablet powered by an Intel processor. Available with the Intel Atom Z3745 Processor with Intel Burst Performance Technology, the TAB S8 dynamically matches processing power to the task at hand in order to maximize battery life without compromising speed. The TAB S8 is just 0.65 pounds and 0.31 inches thin, nearly as thin as a standard pencil.
