The Lenovo Tab Extreme is a high-end Android with an 11 inch display, a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor, support for accessories including a digital pen and detachable keyboard, and Android 13 software.

Lenovo hasn’t officially announced the tablet yet, but the folks at xda-developer spotted a listing for the new tablet on the Google Play Console last month, giving us a sneak peek at some key specs. And Evan Blass has shared some leaked pictures of the tablet, which he says will be announced during the Consumer Electronics show in January.

The tablet is expected to have a 3000 x 1876 pixel display with 320 pixels per inch. While the Google Play Console doesn’t specify screen size, those specs suggest the screen will be around 11 inches.

It’s also expected to have 8GB of RAM and a MediaTek MT8798Z/CSA processor, which is the model number for a chip that’s also known as the MediaTek Dimensity 9000. That’s a flagship-class processor that features:

  • 1 x ARM Cortex-X2 CPU core @ 3.05 GHz
  • 3 x ARM Cortex-A710 cores @ 2.85 GHz
  • 4 x ARM Cortex-A510 cores @ 1.8 GHz
  • 10 Mali-G710 GPU cores @ 848 MHz

While the 5nm chip, which was introduced about a year ago, is no longer MediaTek’s most powerful mobile processor, it’s still a step up from the chips used in most of Lenovo’s recent Android tablets, and brings support for features like LPDDR5x memory, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3. and support for 5G… although it’s unclear if the Lenovo Tab Extreme will take advantage of all of those capabilities.

Based on pictures shared by Evan Blass, it looks like the tablet will have two rear cameras, a front-facing camera, quad speakers, and at least one USB Type-C port.

The digital pen can snap to the back of the tablet magnetically when you’re not holding it, and Lenovo even has a cover/case with a cut-out for the pen.

Just about the only other things we know about Lenovo’s tablet are that has the model number TB570FU, and that it would be the first “Extreme” series tablet from Lenovo. The company also uses that name for the ThinkPad X1 Extreme laptop, which is a high-performance, high-priced member of the ThinkPad notebook lineup. So it seems fair to say that the Lenovo Tab Extreme probably won’t be cheap.

  1. They should make a silo
    for the pen in the tablet itself.
    Pens that attach magnetically
    are too easily removed. No
    info on microSD slot.

    1. And they already have a pen that would fit inside such a tablet! But for some reason they don’t sell it outside of thinkpads.

      1. Lenovo makes some of the most unique, interesting, useful, and cool devices out there.

        For some reason, they always get one or a few things wrong. Sometimes it’s not exactly their fault (processor, software, price).

        I’d love for them to continue doing their thing. But I’d also love to see one device that’s basically faultless.

  2. Those are some good looking bezels on a 11” device. If price is right, I may consider this.

    Although what I want is a Surface Go or any other WOA device with 11” and bezels like this Lenovo tablet.
