The Lenovo Tab M8 line is a cheap Android tablet with high-resolution screens, entry-level processors, and the kind of specs you’d expect to find in a tablet that tends to sell for around $100.
A few months ago we learned that Lenovo was working on the fourth generation modelso it is not surprising to see that the Lenovo Tab M8 (4th generation) is now here Listed on the Japanese Lenovo website And that Specifications are now available for tablet versions that will eventually ship in the US and other countries. what he is Surprisingly, the new model isn’t really an upgrade over the third-generation model. In fact, in most respects, it’s safe to call it reduction.
While the third-generation version of the Lenovo Tab M8 has an octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, the fourth-generation model has a processor with only four Cortex-A53 cores. Both devices have the same 8-inch, 1280 x 800-pixel displays, 2GB of LPDDR4x memory, and 32GB of eMMC storage.
The new model comes with a newer version of Android and has stereo speakers instead of mono. Some models are available with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (the older model tops out at 3GB/32GB). But it also loses some of the features that the third generation model had, including the proximity sensor and vibration motor.

I suppose it’s likely that the slower processor and missing features mean Lenovo will offer the Lenovo Tab M8 (4th gen at a lower price). But it’s also possible that Lenovo is just looking for a way to cut costs while still offering a budget tablet… With inflation being the way it is these days, I’m assuming releasing a new(ish) tablet at the same price as its predecessor is kind of like giving customers discount. Somewhat.
Or you can just choose a previous generation tablet. While the list price is $110, Lenovo is currently Lenovo Tab M8 (3rd generation) retails for $93.
