Intel Atom processor used in Lenovo Tab S8 with Burst Performance Technology

Lenovo kicked off its IFA device launches, by revealing its first Intel-powered Android tablet. The Lenovo Tab S8 uses a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 with 2GB of RAM, with the processor's Burst Performance Technology said to help provide more processing power when it is required, in turn saving on battery life when performing lower-impact tasks.

On the front of the 64-bit tablet is an eight-inch 1920x1200 display with a 1.6-megapixel webcam, while on the back is an 8-megapixel camera with an f2.2 lens. Storage capacity runs to 16GB, the dual front speakers use Dolby audio processing, and the battery life is said to last for up to seven hours, while connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, with optional LTE access.

Lenovo expects to ship the Tab S8 this month, priced at $199.
