At MWC 2019, companies such as Samsung and Huawei launched foldable devices. One of the advantages to a foldable design is that it allows users to fold the device into a smartphone, and unfold it into a tablet. Now it looks like Lenovo could be trying to blur the lines with the launch of the Lenovo Tab V7.
This is a tablet/smartphone hybrid device where it sports a whopping 6.9-inch display. This makes it small enough to be slipped into your pocket, but big enough where it’s almost tablet-like in design with a Full HD 1080×2160 display which gives it an 18:9 display aspect ratio. Lenovo is also boasting an 81% screen-to-body ratio that makes the phone feel smaller while keeping its larger display.
The Tab V7 will also be packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset with up to 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, and also microSD card support. There will also be a 5,180mAh battery, Dolby audio, front and rear-facing cameras, and a fingerprint sensor to top things off. It’s not the most impressive handset we’ve seen, but for an asking price of around $280, it will make it a pretty affordable handset for those who don’t want to spend too much or just want a secondary device to watch their movies on or to surf the web with.
The phone is expected to be released this coming April, but there is no word on whether it will be sold in the US.
