Following up on the Tab P11 Pro, Lenovo recently came out with the non-Pro version of the device, simply called the Tab P11. The new model is a watered-down version of its Pro sibling to lower its exorbitant pricing probably. The result is a quite a bit cheaper tablet that still retains many of the notable features, including a 2K display and stereo speakers. The Tab P11 has a lot going on for itself, which surely is worth checking out.
Here’s what you need to know about the Lenovo Tab P11, including its detailed specs, pricing, availability details, and some good alternatives.
- 11-inch FHD+ display
- Snapdragon 662
- Up to 6GB RAM, 128GB storage
- 4G LTE
- Android 10
- Quad stereo speakers
- 7700mAh battery
- Stylus and keyboard support
Lenovo Tab P11: The Basics
Thanks to its flat sides and back, the Lenovo Tab P11 looks a lot like the new iPads — in a good way, that is. Its back is made out of metal for that premium touch, while most of the front is taken up by a large 11-inch display extending almost from corner to corner. What’s good about it is that you’re getting an FHD+, 400-nit panel, which is good to see from Lenovo in this price bracket. You have the option to make the tablet stand upright using the optional folio case or its keyboard attachment, the latter of which also adds a nifty trackpad to this productivity arrangement.
You can also pair the tablet with a first-party stylus, which is both pressure and tilt sensitive. What makes the entertainment experience on this tablet leaps and bounds better is a quad-speaker setup that blasts stereo audio in both portrait and stereo modes. It’s a bit disappointing that the Tab P11 comes preloaded with a slightly older Android version, though you’re still getting a clean interface along with Google’s new Kids Space. Like many other Lenovo tablets, you can pair this one as well with a Smart Charging Station to turn it into a Google Assistant-powered speaker.
The Tab P11 seems plenty powerful, at least on paper, with its mid-tier Snapdragon 662 processor that you can pair with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Plus, there is a pair of cameras, one each on the front and back, and you can also pop in a SIM for 4G connectivity on the go. With everything that the device brings to the table, Lenovo rates it to last for up to 12 hours on a single charge. We’ll have to test that claim in our review.

Pricing & Availability
The Lenovo Tab P11 is already available in several global markets, including the United States. The tablet costs $229.99, which doesn’t include any of the accessories (though you may find some configurations that may bundle some accessories at a higher price tag). You’ll have to buy its folio case, keyboard attachment, charging station, and stylus separately.
Lenovo Tab P11 Alternatives
In the same price range, you have some decent tablets like the Apple iPad 8 (review), which scored well in our review on most grounds. Samsung also came out with the Galaxy Tab A7 (review) not too long ago, and it’s our new favorite budget tablet in the Android space. Plus, Lenovo itself has a bunch of tablets, like the Tab M10 HD 2nd gen (review), for a slightly lower price, but they sure don’t match the P11’s display.
One tablet that actually comes with a large 11-inch display is the iPad Air 4 (review), which comes with a reformed design, but it costs a lot more than this Lenovo model. If you can get your hands on a Huawei device, then you can look at its MatePad 10.8, which looks to be a decent alternative based on its specs. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (review) is another device we can recommend, but you don’t get keyboard support on this one.
