The upcoming Lenovo Yoga X tablet with an HDMI input that lets you use it as a monitor isn’t the only new Android tablet from Lenovo that’s coming soon. The company has also posted some details on Chinese social media site Weibo about a new tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and a 2560 x 1600 pixel OLED display with a 90 Hz screen refresh rate.

The tablet will be called the Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2021 in China, but odds are that it’ll have a different name if and when it’s sold in the US and other countries.

Lenovo hasn’t revealed the price yet, or other minor details like the screen size, camera features, or memory and storage options.

But with a nearly flagship-class processor and an OLED display, and the word “pro” in its name, I wouldn’t expect this device to be cheap, at least not by Android tablet standards.

Thanks to a 600-nit OLED display with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10, it should provide vivid visuals. And the Snapdragon 870 processor should offer decent performance for mobile gaming or general purpose use.

There also appear to be four speakers and a USB-C port.

More details should be available closer to the time the tablet becomes available for purchases, whenever that will be.

  1. There’s also a Xiaoxin Pad Plus, not sure if it is gonna more expensive than Xiaoxin Pad Pro/Tab P11 Pro.

  2. This is very interesting. I high-key loathe Apple products and it’s been frustrating finding a tablet that checks all the boxes. I ended up going with a Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e a few years ago because of the OLED display but there are some things I don’t like about it. I still think 16:10 is the wrong resolution for a tablet and that 4:3 or 3:2 is much better. The Snapdragon 670 is decent but the emmc storage makes it feel slow. I would prefer the faster 90hz display, as it really does make a huge difference. Most of all, Samsung’s Android customizations suck. I will be interested to see what kind of storage, UI customizations, and price that tablet has. It may be a winner despite still having the wrong aspect ratio.

    1. I also checked the aspect ratio for this article. It turn out that 3:2 is wider than 16:10. So if 16:10 is still not tall enough for you, your only alternative is 4:3.

      1. I think the Aspect Ratio really depends on the device:
        ~2.33 (21:9) – Small Phone
        ~1.89 (17:9) – Large Phone
        ~1.33 (4:3) – Small Tablet
        ~1.50 (3:2) – Large Tablet
        ~1.60 (16:10) – Laptop
        ~1.78 (16:9) – Televisions
        And Airwolf… this tablet has the Snapdragon 870 processor. This is basically the Snapdragon 865+ chip, but its a little faster clocked. Which itself is basically the same as the Snapdragon 865 clocked higher. So these are all pretty much “Flagship Level” processors. The latest Snapdragon 888, and the Snapdragon 888+ aren’t actually that much better in real-world testing. And I would go as far to say, that the old Snapdragon 855+, Snapdragon 855, and the Snapdragon 780G are also Flagship Processors.

        Once you step down to the series of Snapdragon 710-to-Snapdragon 768G, then you feel these are slower processors. They’re around the performance of the Snapdragon 835-to-Snapdragon 845+. Definitely a midrange performance at this moment.

        Stepping down further to the Snapdragon 832-to-Snapdragon 690, these are similar to the Snapdragon 820 performance. It would be considered low-end/midrange performance.

        Anything lower, in particular, the Snapdragon 400-series are very cheap, slow, outdated. They are entry-level chipsets.

        1. Well Snapdragon 690 belongs to Snapdragon 835 tier and Snapdragon 480 belongs to Snapdragon 820 tier.

          1. Dammnit, I knew just as I was typing that I had forgot about those exceptions!

            Thanks though : )

        2. Well the qualcomm naming method is a bit confusing now. 750g is better than 765g, 480 is 675 in 8nm process, 690 is basically 765g with lower frequency.
