Lenovo announces the Tab 2 A10 and Tab 2 A8 tablets at MWC 2015

by: Jimmy WestenbergMarch 1, 2015


Lenovo has released a steady stream of Android-powered products over the last year or so. Specifically, the Yoga Tablet 2 (8-inch and 10.1-inch) and Yoga Tablet 2 Pro devices really stuck out to us, offering great build quality at an exceptional price point. Today, Lenovo adds two more tablets to their list: the Tab 2 A10 and Tab 2 A8.

The Tab 2 A10 offers a big 10.1-inch display for an affordable price point. It’s the first 10-inch tablet to offer Dolby ATMOS 3D Cinema Sound technology to enhance sound quality while listening through headphones. The Tab 2 A8 comes with the same Dolby ATMOS audio enhancements as the first device, though the A8 comes with an 8-inch screen and a much lower price. Check out the rest of the post for more details.

Lenovo Tab 2 A10


The Lenovo Tab 2 A10 is one of the first tablets to feature Dolby ATMOS 3D Cinema audio enhancements, which is said to greatly enhance the way you hear audio when listening through headphones. Its big 10.1-inch HD display paired with the MediaTek processor and 7200mAh battery should offer up a great multimedia experience no matter if you’re listening to music or streaming Netflix. Although the tablet is running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, Lenovo assures us that it will get the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop in June. The A10 is also offered in Wifi or LTE-enabled variants, so you can have data on the go if you’d like.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8


The Lenovo Tab 2 A8 aims to offer a similar multimedia-centric experience to the A10, but in  a more affordable, slightly smaller package. The 8-inch screen is not to big, and not too small. And with the Dolby ATMOS Surround Sound enhancements, watching movies will likely be very enjoyable. This tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the most recent software improvements Google has to offer. And just like the A10, the A8 tablet is being offered in both Wifi and LTE-enabled variants.

    Pretty nice. I’d be interested in checking out that 8 inch one

  • For a second I thought they were using AMD’s A-series CPUs, by the name, and became instantly interested!

    I want to know what Lenovo has cut back on in these tablets, because they must have cut back something to hit those price points!

  • Jeff

    Please do a review of the 10 inch version. It seems awesome for the price. I’ve been waiting for awhile for a cheap 10 inch tablet with a decent screen. But with this one the sound seems great too!

  • PMF

    Micro SD expansion up to 32? Not enough.
