Lenovo launch the feather-light TAB S8

It’s IFA, so it’s time for announcements. Lenovo have a new tablet to show off, and despite being a decent 8 inches, it only weighs 299g. Imagine having two HTC One M8’s in your hand – that’s about the same weight.

With an 8″ 1920×1200 FHD “Infinity” screen and “ultra narrow bezel”, the TAB S8 also features Dolby enhanced dual front speakers, seven hours battery life, 8 megapixel f2.2 rear camera and it’s 4G compatible. Add in the micro USB slot and you can even plug stuff into it too.

It’s powered by a quad-core Intel Atom 1.86 CPU, runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) and will be available in “ebony”, blue, canary yellow and white. There’s a 1.6 megapixel camera up front and you also get the usual WiFi, 2GB RAM, 16GM ROM plus a 4290mAh battery.

As for pricing, Lenovo stated that the TAB S8 will be available this month with models starting at $199. Although that translates to just £121, you can probably expect Brits to be paying £199, but we can always hope it’ll be a bit less.
