The Lenovo Legion Tab is an Android tablet with an 8.8 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display featuring a 144 Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, 12GB of LPDDR5x RAM, and 256GB of storage.

Aimed at mobile gamers, the tablet will be available in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia beginning this month with prices starting at €599 including value-added tax. But this isn’t exactly a new tablet, as the Legion Tab is identical to the Legion Y700 that’s been available in China since last summer.

Still, it’s nice to see this tablet get a wider release, even if it’s not officially going to be available in North America anytime soon.

In addition to the features listed above, the Legion Tab has a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 1TB, a 6,550 mAh battery, and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type Type-C port with support for 45W fast charging and DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode for output to an external display, plus a second USB 2.0 Type-C port for charging or audio.

The Legion Tab supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 wireless connectivity and has 13MP primary camera, a 2MP macro camera, an 8MP front camera, and stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos audio.

While this gaming tablet doesn’t feature some of the things you often find on gaming phones or laptops like RGB lighting effects or a fan for active cooling, Lenovo notes that it has an “oversized vapor chamber” and Lenovo’s ColdFront system that allows you to toggle between Energy Saving, Balanced, or “Beast Mode” depending on how you want to prioritize performance or battery life.

The tablet measures 209 x 129 x 8mm (8.2″ x 5.1″ x 0.3″) and weighs 350 grams (12 ounces).

One thing that appears to set the global version of this tablet apart from the Chinese model is that customers in China can pay extra for a model with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, but if Lenovo offers that option for customers outside of China, it’s not mentioned in the press release.

    1. I think it’s a little over-priced.
      Maybe if it was USD $400 and equivalent in Euros/etc etc. Then it would be decent value.

      But the tablet experience on Android is subpar to say the least. Google was on a great trajectory for tablets during 2011-2012 but have basically abandoned the idea. They are all-in for phones, and these are basically bigger-phones. As much as we get annoyed by Apple, they do an impeccable job with the iPad…. granted you pay enough money and get the correct variants.

  1. I remember trying to order this tablet a couple years back, glad to see it on the international market. Got a S9 tablet instead but it does overheat when gaming, might have to check this one out.

  2. What version of Android will it include? Global rom or Chinese rom? I suppose that if they want to launch it in Europe, it has to include an Android version with Spanish, French, English, German, Italian and compatible with all Google Play Services and the Google Play Store.

    The previous(Lenovo Legion Y700) and current model (Lenovo Legion Y700 2023) DO NOT include European languages and do not include Global rom (only China rom and without access to Play Store)

    1. It will have Lenovos official ROM, not “global” ROM. There’s no such thing as global ROM.

  3. As one who laments the absence of mid-range and high-end tablets in the sub-9” segment, it’s really nice to see this release outside of China.

    I wonder how it would be priced in North America if it comes here. €599 is pretty expensive considering the AYN Odin 2 is $299, and it has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is a whole generation newer.

    Not really a proper comparison, considering the AYN has gamepad controls. But they’re both gaming devices, and the AYN is more suitable for that task.

    The 144hz screen is a nice feature, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the premium.

    1. One other own is that is one of the few smaller Android tablets with proper stylus support

      I have the 2022 version (slightly older processor and only one USB-C port) and it was totally worth it. Though I have to say the premium for it outside of China is quite high. You can get the 12GB/256GB version for about 300 dollars on AliExpress. Though it’s quite possible with the international version being announced that they’ll raise their prices
