Lenovo tab M7 3rd gen


The Lenovo Tab M7 has just received a third-generation refresh alongside the better-specced Lenovo Tab M8. The upgrades are far less apparent this time around and involve a slightly more powerful SoC and a marginally larger battery. Even so, it is still a ideal offering for those on a limited budget.

The Lenovo Tab M7 is unique in that it comes with a 7-inch display, something that manufacturers have almost given up on what with smartphones now approaching that size factor. Anyway, the Tab M7 comes with a 7-inch IPS LCD panel that is lit up by 1024 x 600 pixels.

The display includes 350 nits of brightness, 5-point multitouch, and 16.7 million colors. Lastly, the display also boasts of TÜV Rheinland Eye Care certification for low blue light emission. Another positive with the tablet is that it comes with a metal body that makes it durable and sturdy. The tablet offers Google Kids Space and Google Entertainment Space.


Lenovo has configured the Wi-Fi-only and LTE variants of the Tab M7 with different SoCs. For the processor, it is the MediaTek MT8166 SoC that powers the Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet while the LTE model features a MediaTek MT8766 chipset at its core. That apart, both the tablet versions offer 2 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMCP storage. The latter again is further expandable to 1 TB by way of microSD cards. Power comes from a rather low 3,750mAh battery backed by a 10W fast charger.

For cameras, there are two 2 MP cameras, one each on the front and back. Connectivity options with the tablet include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and GNSS, along with  a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a micro-USB port as well. Sensors onboard include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and a vibrator while there also is a Dolby Audio enabled mono speaker as well for entertainment.

The two tablets seem to be suitably specced to take on the competition well enough.
