The director of consumer product marketing for Lenovo China has posted on Weibo a live photo of the new tablet, which is expected to be announced shortly.
According to network sources, we are talking about the preparation of a compact gaming-grade gadget. The size of its display will be about 8 inches diagonally.
The picture shows the front camera, located on one of the frames around the screen. Obviously, the device will also receive a rear camera, but the resolution of the sensors has not yet been revealed.
Observers believe that with the release of the new product, Lenovo intends to enter the segment of the market, which is now dominated by the Apple iPad mini. This tablet features an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display with a resolution of 2266 × 1488 pixels and an Apple A15 Bionic processor.
There is no information about the hardware platform of the Lenovo gadget yet. One of the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon chips or a MediaTek Kompanio product can be used. Modifications with and without cellular support are likely to go on sale. The Android operating system will be used as the software platform.
In the third quarter of this year, global tablet shipments decreased by 15% compared to the same period in 2020. The final result, according to Canalys estimates, was 37.7 million units.
