Ahead of this year’s IFA, Lenovo has unveiled its next generation of tablet devices, announcing both the Tab M7 and Tab M8. Both of the tablets come with both LTE and Wi-Fi.
Lenovo says that both the Tab M7 and Tab M8 are much more family-friendly than the previous generation of tablets. Much of this is accomplished through the Kid’s Mode 3.0 system, which allows parents to create an account for their children with a variety of safety mechanisms. The software also comes with a variety of age-appropriate apps, as well as audiobooks, songs, and games.
The Lenovo Tab M7’s battery allows for up to ten hours of video playback or up to a full day of use. The Tab M8, on the other hand, offers even longer battery life, with the company noting that it has up to 12 hours of video playback. Both devices are TÜV Rheinland certified, allowing a significant amount of eye protection.
Both tablets come with a full-metal cover to ensure that they offer a certain amount of durability. In addition, they’re sporting a somewhat more refined and sleeker design compared to the previous generation.
Both the Lenovo Tab M7 and M8 will be available starting in October, with the M7 set to retail for $89.99. There will be two variants of the Tab M8; the first comes with an HD display and will retail for $109.99, while the FHD version will be available for $159.99.
