Lenovo’s latest entry-level Android tablet is now available. The Lenovo Tab M7 (3rd-gen) is a 7 inch tablet with an IPS touchscreen display, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

It’s not exactly a high-performance machine, but it does have a few nice features including an all-metal case, WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. Unlike some other budget tablets, it also ships with Android 11 Go Edition software, complete with support for the Google Play Store. The new Lenovo Tab M7 is available from Lenovo.com for $110.

It’s one of several new tablets Lenovo is launching this summer – the company also has a new Tab M8 (3rd-gen) with a bigger, higher-resolution display, but that model will not be sold in the United States.

Other new models including the Lenovo Tab 11 and Tab P11 Plus mid-range tablets, and the Lenovo Yoga Tab 13 premium tablet with an HDMI input for use as a portable monitor.

The Lenovo Tab M7 (3rd-gen) features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel IPS LCD display with support for up to 350 nits of brightness and support for 5-point multitouch input.

The tablet is powered by either a 2 GHz MediaTek MT8166 processor (for WiFi-only models) or a 2 GHz MT8766 chip (for 4G LTE versions) and features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD card reader capable of handling cards up to 2TB.

Lenovo equips the tablet with a 3,750 mAh battery that should provide up to 10 hours of run time while playing video or browsing the web. Lenovo says it also charges about 30% faster than the previous-gen.

With a mono speaker, a low-res display, 2MP fixed-focus front and rear cameras, and a micro USB 2.0 port, this thing is practically the definition of a budget device. But at least it has a relatively affordable price tag to match.

If you’re in a country where the new Lenovo Tab M8 (3rd-gen) tablet is sold, that model is a little more interesting, with an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, a 2.3 GHz MediaTek Helio P22T octa-core processor, support for up to 3GB of RAM, 32GB of store, and a 5,100 mAh battery for up to 15 hours of battery life.

It also supports an optional Smart Charging Station that props up the tablet and lets you use it as a hands-free Google Assistant smart display.

But, again, the 8 inch model isn’t currently scheduled to come to the United States anytime soon.

That said, Lenovo is clearing out previous-gen inventory. Right now you can pick up an older Lenovo Tab M8 HD with a MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core processor, a 1280 x 800 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage for $100 when you use the coupon code JULYBLOWOUT at checkout.

Or for $120 you can snag a Lenovo Tab M8 FHD with a Helio P22T octa-core processor, a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Use the coupon code JULYBLOWOUT at checkout to get that price.

Both of those tablets, unfortunately, ship with Android 9 Pie though.

  1. Not that impressive. I just got the 8G/64G version for $165 a couple weeks ago. So for an extra $50 I got double the ram and storage

  2. Mostly happy with my new M10 Plus FHD (4/64) w/Alexa for only $140 from Prime day. Personally find that 10″ is too big for a tablet, but didn’t want anything less than 1920×1080, after having it for years on 6″ phones. Think an 8″ with basically the same specs and a smaller charging-only dock would’ve been perfect.

  3. I use the older M8 FHD model with 3GB ram and the Helio P22T processor. It sells for $120 without any discounts. These “new” versions are lower cost ones… with the Helio A22 processor, less RAM and lower resolution display.
    If you don’t like your kids, buy them the cheaper version.

  4. Micro-USB, and 1024×600 screen. Did you forget to launch this product 7 or 8 years ago, Lenovo?

    1. Haha 5 billion people utterly impoverished and forced to sell kidney to pay loan sharks due covid restrictions is still a big market.

      1. I agree that there should be options for all budgets, but it’s a little unnecessary to deliver a product in 2021 with Micro-USB at any pricepoint.

        There are lots of USB-C connectors in the component supply industry that are designed for USB 2.0, and are just as cheap as Micro-USB connectors.

        It was an odd compromise to choose Micro-USB, but still offer a metal case. Metal cases are not necessarily more durable. Metal doesn’t absorb impacts as well as plastic does.
