Lenovo’s new Yoba Tab 3 Pro is coming to market soon later this year and the only upgrade it’s received from the last model is an upgrade in projected screen size from 50” to 70”. Everything else is pretty much the same except some changes to the overall form. With its 10,200mAh battery Lenovo says it will run for about 18 hours under normal usage. There’s 4 JBL speakers providing sound and a 13 megapixel rear facing camera along with a 5 megapixel front facing camera to match. What’s disappointing is that they seem to downgraded their other new tablets for the year going from a 1080p screen to just a 1200×800 resolution on their Yoga Tab 3 which is still a bit better than 720p but at the same time a step backward. They’ve also chosen to go with a smaller screen coming from a 13” screen on the Yoga Tab 2 Pro down to an 8” and 10” for this year.
It appears that the market for tablets are very saturated with high competitors like the Samsung Galaxy and of the iPad line up. Lenovo is probably trying to find their own niche in the market by including what are now almost standard features and banking on the unique hinge design and over all form. The downgrades is most likely a move to wrap all of that up in a low priced package while being able to offer consumers a product that can be used for a full range of entertainment options.
