The Lenovo Tab Extreme is the biggest, most powerful Android tablet Lenovo has released to date. It’s also the most expensive.

When the company first unveiled the 14.5 inch tablet in January, we were told that it would sell for $1200 and up. Now it’s available for purchase from Best Buy and the good news is that the starting price is lower. The less good news is that it’s still $950.

That high price does buy you a lot of tablet though. The Tab Extreme features a 3000 x 1876 pixel, 120 Hz OLED display, a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor, 12GB of LPDDR5x RAM, and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage plus a microSD card reader.

The tablet supports WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, features 4 microphones, 8 speakers, and support for Dolby Atmos sound, a 12,3000 mAh battery with support for 68W fast-charging via a USB-C adapter, and both a Fingerprint sensor and Face unlock for quick logins.

Lenovo put 13MP and 5MP cameras on the back of the Tab Extreme, and a 13MP camera on the front. There are USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C and USB 2.0 Type-C ports, plus a pogo pin connector for an optional detachable keyboard.

While Best Buy doesn’t seem to be including that keyboard in the purchase price, the tablet does come with a Folio Case and a pressure-sensitive Lenovo Pen 3 for writing and drawing on the screen.

The Lenovo Tab Extreme ships with Android 13 and Lenovo is promising to deliver at least three major OS updates and 4 years of security updates. In addition to the steps Google has taken to make Android more tablet & large-screen friendly in recent years, Lenovo says the Tab Extreme also supports a split-screen mode that lets you divide the display into as many as four sections for a multitasking view that lets you see four apps at once.

  1. For thaT sIze I’ll get a laptop Chrombook, never A tablet. a smaller tablet. PLuS I rather have a smallet tablet. But.lenovo 8 inch ate all a hunk of junk. They can’t make a quality small tablet.

  3. I don’t keep up with tech news much anymore, aside from Liliputing. The 8-speaker thing is new for me. I’ve only known about quad speakers in some premium tablets, maybe some recent laptops as well. Are new tablets and / or laptops offering eight speakers now? Or is this kind of a novelty?

    If it’s a novelty, I suppose this Tab Extreme could be angling for the video conferencing crowd (while also trying to capture other power users), with a large display and everything.

  4. You gotta love it when a vendor puts the word out that their ultra new supremo widget is gonna cost a bundle and whamo!~ just like that, we are going to do you a big solid and only charge you 25% less. See, arent we a cool company? Do you get how we give you this perception of value? Leak, rumor and word drops and then bam. When you know darn well it only cost them $300 to make the said widget. Then sometime around Black Friday, they will do you another huge solid, they will lower the price, yes, you heard it, lower the price once again another 25% off! Wow, we have been so blessed to get what was a $1200 widget, is now only $699. Finally by next spring, our vendors benevolence will end once and for all, hurry now, don’t miss it, our final blowout of said widget is only $400. What a steal, what a deal!!

    1. When you can get a surface go 3 for $400, this tablet does seem disproportionately priced.

  5. If I’m gonna pay $1000 for a tablet it better have windows on it and come with a keyboard

    1. gsmarena will tell you, but this is a quick comparison between the s9 ultra and tab extreme.

      s9 ultra comes with 8-16GB RAM and 256-512GB of storage. A qualcomm snapdragon 2 octacore processor.

      tab s8 ultra comes with 8-16GB RAM and 128-512GB of storage, and a snapdragon 1 octacore processor.

      lenovo tab extreme comes with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. It sports a Mediatek Dimensity 9000 octacore processor.

      If you want any other specs, you can find them. 🙂

  6. $950 for an android tablet is just ridiculous. Especially considering I read recently that Lenovo’s profits have sunk 75% recently.
    $950 really isn’t priced to sell in my opinion as is, let alone given their position right now.

  7. I wish Lenovo keep their promises of updates for this tablet, I was left in the lurch with my Motorola Zoom and a Motorola cellphone I don’t remember what I was.
    Two very expensive paper weights.

      1. correction: wrong Motorola device confused the zoom with the xoom.

        Lenovo is lazy with android updates
