    The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, with its massive 14.6-inch screen, is the largest Android-based tablet in the market (at least from a leading technology brand). While the flagship tablet had no direct rival since the company launched it in February 2022, it just got one. At CES 2023, Lenovo launched Tab Extreme, an Android-based tablet with an enormous 14.5-inch screen.

    Lenovo Tab Extreme has a 14.5-inch 120Hz OLED screen, two USB Type-C ports

    While the Lenovo Tab Extreme's screen is 0.1-inch shy of being as large as the one on Samsung’s flagship tablet, it’s right up there. According to Lenovo, the screen uses OLED technology, and it has a 3,000 x 1,876 pixels resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+ support. That means the display on the Lenovo tablet is not only as large as that on the Tab S8 Ultra, but it’s almost as feature-packed.

    Powering the Lenovo Tab Extreme is the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC, which should be as powerful as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset on the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. You can opt for up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The tablet will ship with Android 13, and the company will offer it three new versions of the OS through software updates. It will also get security updates for up to four years.

    Lenovo Tab Extreme's cameras aren't as impressive as Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, but it has eight JBL speakers

    Imaging on Lenovo’s tablet, however, isn’t as impressive as that on Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. You get a 13MP primary camera at the rear with a 5MP ultra-wide sensor, whereas, a selfie camera is a 13MP unit with an RGB sensor and ultra-wide FoV. Samsung, on the other hand, offers two 12MP cameras (wide and ultrawide) on the front. The latter can be used to keep one in the center of the frame, like Apple Center Stage.

    While the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has four speakers, the Lenovo Tab Extreme has eight. Yes, that’s right. Eight JBL speakers with support for Dolby Atmos. The tablet packs a 12,300mAh battery and supports 68W fast charging. It also shines in terms of connectivity, featuring a USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 port, USB Type-C 2.0 port, microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.3. There is, however, no LTE model on offer.

    Similar to Samsung’s flagship tablet, the Lenovo Tab Extreme ships with a stylus and the company calls it Lenovo Precision Pen 3. But we doubt it would perform as well as Samsung's S Pen. The new tablet will arrive at some point in 2023 with a starting price of $1,200, putting it right against the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
