At the IFA conference in Berlin, Lenovo unveiled a range of new tablets and PCs. The range includes the Tab S8, its first Intel-powered Android tablet, the Y70 Touch, a 17-inch touch laptop and the Erazer X315, a cheaper desktop gaming PC.
Tab S8: Combines Android Experience with Intel Performance
Lenovo created the Tab S8 for consumers who are looking for a slim and affordable Android tablet. At 8-inches, the Tab S8’s 1920×1200 infinity screen is sharper than FHD, while the One Glass Solution touch-panel technology provides a clear viewing experience. The tablet’s ultra-slim bezel merges the screen with the dark front panel, giving the Tab S8 a sleek, clean look. The front panel also features a 1.6-megapixel HD camera for easy video chatting.

Pre-installed apps, like SHAREit, allow for easy and safe photo and file sharing. Lenovo Tab S8
Engineered to give users the most from their mobile device without sacrificing portability, the Lenovo Tab S8 marks Lenovo’s first 8-inch Android tablet powered by an Intel processor. Available with the Intel Atom Z3745 Processor with Intel Burst Performance Technology, the Tab S8 matches processing power to the task at hand in order to maximize battery life without compromising speed in a thin and light design. The Tab S8 is 0.65 pounds and 0.31 inches thin, nearly as thin as a standard pencil.
Additional features include optional high-speed LTE (4G) connectivity (based on Intel XMMTM 7160) and Wi-Fi for data connectivity, up to seven hours of battery life to keep users cord-free, and 64-bit technology compatibility. The Tab S8 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, includes 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and Dolby-enhanced dual front speakers.
Y70 Touch: Extreme Performance for HD Gaming
The Lenovo Y70 Touch comes with a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GTX graphics, making it ideal for heavy entertainment use and HD gaming. At 17-inches, the Y70 Touch is Lenovo’s largest touchscreen laptop, opening up a whole new level of interaction for video editing, social sharing and gaming. Lenovo Y70 Touch
The Y70 delivers a good audio and visual experience, with a FHD display that brings movies and games to life with enhanced colour, clarity and resolution. Its JBL-designed stereo speakers and subwoofer paired with Dolby Advanced Audio provide a totally immersive audio experience rarely found on a laptop. The backlit keyboard glows in dimly lit environments, adding to the overall visual experience.
At under 7.5 pounds, the Y70 Touch is thinner and lighter than most other laptops in its class thanks to the external optical disc drive that supports both DVD and Blu-ray. The Y70 Touch also features up to five hours of battery life and customizable memory and storage options, with up to 16GB DDR3L and 1TB of SSHD storage or 256GB SSD storage.
Erazer X315: Smooth, Immersive Gaming with Design Flare
The Lenovo Erazer X315 is the latest addition to its line of gaming desktop PCs. To keep users in the action, the Erazer X315 features AMD Radeon R9 series graphics, a quad-core processor and up to 2TB of SSHD. The combined power and speed allows users to play the most intense games seamlessly without lag. The Erazer X315 boosts the gaming experience with audio featuring 7.1 channel sound support and Dolby enhancements. Lenovo Erazer X315
