Lenovo has unveiled a new tablet-sized smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2019. Lenovo Tab V7 has been launched with a large 6.9-inch display along with 18:9 aspect ratio and an 81 percent screen-to-body ratio. The panel bears 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. The handset offers an aged Snapdragon chipset, the latest Android operating system and a massive battery under the hood. The device is priced at €249 (approximately Rs 20,000), and will be available in a single Slate Black color option.
It is set to go on sale from April 2019. While the Lenovo Tab V7 flaunts a big 6.9-inch display, which is good for binge-watching, it may struggle with heavy-titles as it is built around the aged Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset. The octa-core chipset is backed by 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB using a microSD card. It will ship with Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box.
The device is powered by a massive 5,810mAh battery and it also supports USB Type-C charging. The handset reportedly offers dual front firing speakers and Dolby Atmos. On the photography front, the newly launched device offers a single 13-megapixel rear camera along with autofocus and LED flash. For capturing selfies, there is a 5-megapixel camera sensor. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor as well as Face Unlock for security.
