The Lenovo Tab V7 was first unveiled during MWC earlier this year and has now been launched for Indian consumers. The Tab V7 is essentially a phablet that adopts Lenovo’s “tablet-and-smartphone-in-one” ideology. This phablet comes with mid-range specs and will be available for purchase next month via both online and offline retailers.

Other retail outlets including Amazon.in, Croma, Reliance Digital and Vijay Sales are also set to have the tablet in stock soon.
Lenovo Tab V7 Specifications. Features
While the top and bottom bezels of the Lenovo Tab V7 are a tab bit chunky, the side bezels are relatively slim. This tablet comes with a 6.9-inch LCD screen that features a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels, an aspect ratio of 18:9, and a peak brightness of 350 nits. This screen is said to cover roughly 81 percent of the front of the device. Lenovo used the remaining space to offer two front-firing speakers that come with Dolby Audio tuning. Since the phone isn’t that much wider than a standard smartphone, Lenovo decided to provide a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that should be reachable with a single-handed grip.
Powering the Tab V7 is a Snapdragon 450 SoC that has been paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of in-built storage. Both models offer microSD card expansion for up to 128GB of additional storage space. For software, the phone runs Android 9.0 Pie by default. Lenovo also managed to offer two camera units on this tablet. On the front, we have a 5MP fixed focus selfie shooter, while the rear houses a 13MP autofocus camera. The camera app is said to offer various imaging modes including HDR, Panorama, Night Shot, Portrait, and more. Since the Tab V7 is more like an oversized smartphone, Lenovo claims one-handed photography is not a problem.
In terms of connectivity, the Lenovo Tab V7 offers dual SIM card slots with 4G VoLTE support. Additionally, you get Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. To keep such a large contraption running for hours on end, Lenovo packed the Tab V77 with a 5180mAh battery that is being claimed to offer up to 30 hours of talktime and up to 10 hours of video playback and browsing. While there is no fast charging support on this tablet, thankfully, Lenovo did manage to equip it with a USB Type-C port.
Rahul Agarwal, CEO and MD, Lenovo India, released the following statement for the launch of this tablet: “At Lenovo, we listen to our consumers and bring in meaningful innovations that help them do more and achieve more. The Lenovo Tab V7 is the result of our relentless effort of understanding what our consumer needs, decode their requirements and come up with technology that can meet their expectations. Tablet market is showing signs of recovery, driven by the potential demand from sectors like Government, education, banking and finance and as the market leader, we are well-positioned to lead this growth.”
