Lenovo Tab P12 Arrives with 12.7 LCD and MediaTek Dimensity 7050

The tablet segment is booming with many releases from various brands. Nowadays, companies like Oppo, Realme, and even OnePlus that weren’t in this segment are now consolidating their lineups with good tablets for the premium and more affordable segment. Meanwhile, other brands that have remained in this category, even during its darkest days, are striving to retain their user base. Yesterday we saw Samsung making a bold move into the tablet segment with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 series. Today, it’s time for Lenovo, another brand that has a traditional presence in the category, to launch a new contender. The company presents the Lenovo Tab P12 with a large display and decent performance for those who need a large-sized device.

Lenovo Tab P12 Specifications – A decent mid-range tablet

The Lenovo Tab P12 arrives as a non-Pro version of the Lenovo Tab P12 Pro 5G in 2021. The new model comes with a huge 12.7-inch LTPS LCD screen with 2,944 x 1,840 pixels of resolution. However, the refresh rate remains at the standard 60 Hz, which some may consider low. Although the screen refresh won’t be the smoothest out there, the audio experience got some attention. The tablet has Quad Speakers tuned by JBL providing a rich and immersive audio experience, especially when consuming multimedia content.

In terms of optics, the Lenovo Tab P12 comes with a 13 MP ultrawide selfie snapper. I’m glad to see that Lenovo paid enough attention to put the ultrawide lens on the selfie snapper. It’s really useful for video calls. It allows you to appear with a wider perspective rather instead of having your face with a “zoom-in” effect.Moving around to the back, there is an 8 MP rear camera with auto-focus.

Performance and Multi-Tasking Features

Under the hood, there is the most notable difference in the Lenovo Tab P12. While the Pro variant had the Snapdragon 870, this one uses a newer Dimensity 7050. Despite being newer, its horsepower lags behind the Snapdragon 870. The Dimensity 7050 has 2 x ARM Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6 GHz, and 6 x ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. The GPU is a Mali-G68 MC4 which should be enough for modest gaming.

The tablet comes with options for 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage. The Lenovo Tab P12 also offers a micro SD card slot and draws its power from a 10,200 mAh battery with 30W fast charging. On the software front, the Lenovo Tab P12 runs Android 13 and Lenovo ensures two major OS upgrades and four years of security patches.  Lenovo’s Tab Pen Plus Stylus is present in the retail box.

Lenovo’s software is also tweaked with some features to improve the experience on the tablet. There is also a keyboard accessory to boost the multi-tasking capabilities in the slate. The keyboard features keys with a 1.5mm key travel, gentle 0.2mm concavity, and a 19mm key pitch for a comfortable typing experience. The built-in trackpad and 16 functional shortcuts make it simple to navigate one’s workspace. For next-level multi-tasking, users can now access four apps in split screen and up to 5 floating windows. The company also provides a reading mode with background music and an eye care feature for students.

Pricing and Availability

Lenovo Tab P12 comes in Storm Grey and Oat color options. The tablet is available for €400/£350. However, if you go for the version with the keyboard case included the price will go for €500. The tablet is clearly focused on students and people that need a decent tablet for productivity tasks. Although the performance is not stellar, the Dimensity 7050 is above any 4G chipset that we know with its Cortex-A78 cores for performance tasks.

The Lenovo Tab P12 is a decent offering and certainly will be attractive for students and people that need a large display and enhanced productivity.
