Lenovo IdeaTab S8: 8-Inch Display, Intel Bay Trail and Android 4.4 KitKat

IFA 2014 is approaching us at a fast pace and we expect to see a lot of interesting things from a lot of the key players in the industry.

One of the device makers expected to make a splash at the event with a host of new products is Lenovo. For example, last week the first images of the upcoming IdeaTab S8 tablet have surfaced online, showing us a colorful tab running on the Intel chip platform. But apart from that, we couldn’t really tell you much about the device’s specs, so we speculated. But now the folks of TabTech are providing us with a more consistent look regarding the tablet. A few days ago we didn’t even know if this was an Android tab or a Windows one. Well, it appears we’re going to be dealing with the former scenario. For the time being, Lenovo uses Intel processor to power its Windows lineup of products, while the Android family is taken care of by MediaTek. But this scenario will change soon as Lenovo is extending its partnership with Intel to include Android devices, as well.

The Lenovo IdeaTab S8 arrives with an 8-inch display, but we don’t know the resolution yet. Hopefully, Lenovo will give users the choice between HD and FHD (or even more). Operating things under the hood is an Intel quad-core Bay Trail Z3745 processor clocked at 1.86GHz supported by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable). Other specifications include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and LTE. It might be possible that the new Lenovo tablet will come with phone calling capabilities, but we can’t tell you for sure whether this is the case or not. We’ll have to wait a few days before we can confirm or infirm this information. Moving along, the Lenovo IdeaTab S8 has an 8MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash, so you should be covered in the photography department.

The new slate arrives with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, so you won’t have to wait for any updates (at least until Android Lemon Merengue Pie shows up). We should note that the presence of the IdeaTab S8 hasn't yet been confirmed for IFA 2014, but one thing is certain, the IdeaTab S8 is certainly in the pipeline and if we are not to see it this week, we will certainly do so in the upcoming few months. In the meanwhile, you should still keep an eye on Lenovo, because the company will surely have some interesting stuff to show you.
