Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus and Tab 4 8 Plus
Samsung, in any case, is not the only one that has taught us new tablets in Barcelona, since Lenovo He has also presented his latest Android and Windows models there. The Android, which we started with, are these Tab 4 10 Plus and Tab 4 8 Plus, the latest generation of its mid-range tablets, which comes in two different sizes and with very interesting features for those who are looking for a multimedia device, with a Snapdragon 625, Full HD screen and sound Dolby Atmos. Your prices will be between 250 and 300 euros, but if you are looking for something even cheaper, they have also announced new basic range models.
Lenovo Miix 320
We already anticipated that there had also been news on Windows tablet by Lenovo and, indeed, the last member of the Miix family has debuted at the MWC: if in La Vegas we had met the Miix 720, which represents the top of the range, in Barcelona has presented the Miix 320, which is the mid-range model, which may not attract as much attention, but that is an option as necessary as the previous one, considering that the prices of the best hybrids are beyond the reach of many. This tablet will arrive with Full HD screen and Intel processor Atom X5 by 270 euros.
Huawei P10 Plus
We turn to the phablets, and here there is much to talk about too, starting with the new premium version of the latest flagship of Huawei which, as usual, not only comes with some extras compared to the standard version but also with a larger screen. Among its main attractions, there is a very compact design, a 5.5 inch Quad HD screenthe processor Kirin 960 that had already debuted in the Huawei Mate 9 and the dual camera Leica (with a module of 20 MP and another of 12 MP) that is not missing in any of the best smartphones of the company.
The honor of starting the carousel of great launches was the LG G6, what managed to snatch the Huawei P10 Plus a good part of the prominence last Sunday, with a more conservative design perhaps than its predecessor, but with many more possibilities to attract potential buyers, surely, with a more elegant and interesting design dual camera but, above all, with a Quad HD screen simply spectacular, and not only because of its size and image quality, but also because LG She is experimenting with her with a new format that should better our multimedia experience.
Xperia XZ Premium
Shortly after the Huawei P10 Plus and the LG G6 (the next day to be exact) a new high-end phablet from Sony also came to light in Barcelona: the Xperia XZ Premium. This is already the most interesting news because the Japanese had not launched a phablet version of their flagship for a long time, but it has proved to be the winner of the prize for best new MWC smartphone. What have been your arguments for this? Its charms are the most varied, but we are sure that its 4K screen and its spectacular camera have had a lot to do.
Xperia XA1 Ultra
Although the great news has been that Sony returns to compete in the field of high-end phablets, we also have to highlight the Xperia XA1 Ultra, which is "simply" the renewal of its current mid-range phablet and does not attract so much attention, but that is still a very powerful alternative for those who like very large screens, since they have kept the 6 inches, and / or of the selfies, since we have a camera of 23 MP in the back and nothing less than 16 MP in the one in front.
