With an 11.5-inch screen, the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro is 5.8mm thick and weighs 485 grams. The size and weight that is very much reminiscent of the iPad Pro 11-inch (5.9mm thick, 471g-473g), but it features an OLED screen.
The specifications of the OLED 11.5-inch display include 1600 x 2560 pixels, 6:10 ratio, color gamut NTSC 108%, Dolby Vision / HDR10 support, and a maximum brightness of 500 nits. The screen occupancy is 87%.
The processor is Snapdragon 730G with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage with UFS connection, and a micro SDXC slot to expand up to 1TB.
Other key specifications include quad JBL speakers (Optimized for Dolby Atmos), side fingerprint sensor, 13MP (wide) and 5MP (ultrawide) cameras on the back, dual 8MP cameras on the front, and a 15-hour run-time battery.
The dual front-facing camera can be used for zero-touch login for facial recognition, as well as the back blur for video conferencing, which is all too common on Work From Home.
The optional Lenovo Precision Pen 2 has 4096 levels of pressure detection, tilt detection, and 100 hours of battery life. A fabric cover that doubles as a stand and pen holder and a detachable keyboard with an 18mm key pitch and 1.3mm stroke are also available.
Speaking of high-end tablets, the iPad Pro dominates the market, with the only competition being Windows notebook tablets such as the Surface. On the other hand, Android tablets are mostly low-priced and aimed at children, with very few high-performance models available.
But according to Lenovo, the tablet category is up 20% YoY as more people are living the so-called new normal lifestyle at home and working from various locations in their homes.
If the growth of tablets in the stay-home and demand for premium models with high productivity in remote work increases, premium Android tablets may also make a comeback as an alternative to the iPad Pro.
The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro will be available in Europe in November 2020. It's expected to be priced at €699, including VAT. As it is, it will cost around 80,000 yen.
