Lenovo Tab Extreme takes on the iPad Pro, complete with Magic Keyboard clone
I’m holding out the for 17-inch version —
For a few years now, Lenovo has been a reliable builder of high-end Android tablets. Its latest is the “Lenovo Tab Extreme,” an extra-large tablet whose 14.5-inch display lands right in the normal laptop range. It also has a laptop-sized price: $1,199. The tablet is meant to compete directly with the iPad Pro, and there’s even a floaty “magic keyboard” clone.
The display is a 14.5-inch 3000×1876, 120 Hz OLED with an ambient color sensor. That’s big, and the tablet without any accessories weighs 740 g (1.63 lbs). There’s pen input via the included “Lenovo Precision Pen 3,” a magnetically attachable Bluetooth pen with 4,096 levels of pressure, tilt sensitivity, and all the usual detection.
The big new addition is the new “Lenovo Tab Extreme Keyboard,” which attaches to the tablet via magnets and pogo pins, allowing it to be powered by the tablet battery. The whole thing cribs Apple’s “Magic Keyboard” design, with the tablet floating above the keyboard. The hinge works a lot like a laptop, allowing you to tilt the screen to a comfortable position or just close the whole thing like a traditional laptop. The keyboard is full-size and has backlit keys and a tiny trackpad at the bottom.
If you don’t want to drag the full keyboard around, the tablet also has a lightweight kickstand that can magnetically attach to the back. The kickstand will support the tablet in landscape or portrait modes, and with DisplayPort in and out over USB-C, you can use the tablet as an extra monitor or power a second monitor with it. While the keyboard is self-supporting, it has a cutout on the back to make room for the kickstand so both accessories can be attached at the same time. When you rip the tablet off the keyboard, it’s ready to go, with the kickstand already attached.
There’s also a magnetic kickstand that can attach along with the keyboard case. They fit inside each other.
You can end up with a stack of acessories. This is the closed keyboard case, plus the kickstand, plus the pen.
The pen can magnetically attach to the side of the tablet like this.

There’s also this folio case.
And it will hang above the magic keyboard.
There are two USB-C ports, one in the usual spot centered on the side of the tablet and another on that same side in the corner. Both can be used for charging, reverse charging, and audio out. One port, a Type-C 3.2 Gen 1, is for DisplayPort out, while the other 2.0 port is for DisplayPort in. The tablet can either be a monitor or power another monitor with Android. There’s certainly plenty of room for two USB-C ports, saving you from having to use a dongle if you want to plug in a monitor and charge the tablet simultaneously.
Its SoC is a MediaTek Dimensity 9000. This is rather rare in the Android space, but it’s a Cortex X2 chip, putting it in the same generation as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (a 2022 flagship chip). The tablet has 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 12300 mAh battery, and 68 W quick charging. For cameras, it has a front 13 MP sensor, a rear 13 MP main sensor, and a 5 MP wide-angle sensor. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the power key, a microSD slot, and Wi-Fi 6E compatibility. Lenovo wants this to be a “Media powerhouse,” so the device has eight speakers.
The tablet comes with Android 13, and Lenovo offers three years of major Android updates and four years of security updates. That’s a big improvement for the company, which didn’t do great at providing consistent Android updates during its ownership of Motorola. There’s no release date.
Lenovo’s new Android tablet, the Tab Extreme, looks like a really big iPad Pro

The 14.5-inch Lenovo Tab Extreme seems like Lenovo’s answer to the iPad Pro, right down to the sleek gray chassis, Magic Keyboard-like keyboard stand, and stylus. It’s just a little bigger.
The $1,199 Tab Extreme has a 14.5-inch 120Hz 3K OLED display and runs Android 13. It comes with a dual-hinge keyboard that serves as a stand, letting you lift the device up and off your desk while you type, as well as a separate magnetic dual-mode stand that lets you position the tablet horizontally or vertically. It also comes with the Lenovo Precision Pen 3.
For comparison, the 12.9-inch M2-equipped iPad Pro starts at $1,099 without the Magic Keyboard Folio or Apple Pencil, which cost $349 and $129, respectively. That all adds up to $1,677, and that’s without the extra screen real estate provided by the Tab Extreme. Meanwhile, Samsung’s $1,199 Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra offers a similar 14.6-inch display, but it doesn’t include the $349.99 Book Cover Keyboard.
Other neat features include a fingerprint sensor on the power key, a microSD slot in case you need more storage, and a feature that keeps you in the frame when you’re on camera, just like Center Stage. According to Lenovo, it can function as a drawing tablet or second screen for a Windows PC, either via USB-C connection or with the Lenovo Freestyle app. Yes, this is basically Apple’s Sidecar.
The Lenovo Tab Extreme has an eight-core MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. It has 13MP cameras on the front and back of the device, and Lenovo estimates up to 12 hours of battery life. According to Lenovo, the device ships with Android 13 and will receive three future OS updates as well as four years of security patches. It’s expected to go on sale later this year.

How to Choose the Right Folio Cases for Your Device
When you get any technological device, one of the first things you should do is fit it with some sort of case or screen protector. Whether it’s a phone or tablet case, using a protective cover will decrease the chance of your device having damage from accidents or environmental contaminants. Folio cases are usually leather or rubber and are identifiable by their functional aesthetic and lightweight design. Depending on the type of device you are using, the folio case may have additional features, such as stands or flip-over tab covers.
What Devices Can I Use a Folio Case With?
As the number of available technology devices increases, the range of folio cases and covers has continued to grow accordingly. The most common types of folio cases go with tablets, laptops, and eBook readers. For each of these devices, there are both universal and model-specific cases. Folio cases usually add between 1-inch and 2-inches of width to the device they match with.
- Tablet: The vast majority of tablet cases are from soft PU leather and can be either plain or customized with patterns and artistic designs. Folio cases for tablets often have fold-out stands at the tab base, giving the user the ability to watch video content or use the tablet on a flat surface. Tablet cases also have a number of tabs on the leather case, allowing you to store documents and stationery with your tablet. If you have a briefcase or laptop sleeve, tablet cases are slim and easy to squeeze into full bags.
- Laptop: Folio cases for laptops can minimize any shock damage on the back of the laptop’s monitor panel. Because of the prominent position of the case, the visual design of a Lenovo laptop folio case is sleek and minimalistic. Moreover, unlike universal laptop cases, Lenovo laptop folio cases use premium full-grain leather instead of PU leather.
- eBook Reader: The cases and protective covers for eBook readers are built to withstand substantial use. Because eBook readers see regular use at home and on the go, the folio cases must provide protection against water, dust, and shock.
How Much Protection Does a Folio Case Give?
The level of protection that your folio case provides for your device will depend both on your level of use, and the build-quality of the case. The most effective folio cases are form-fitting and durable sleeves that can safely stop dust and water from reaching the internal components in your device.
- Dust: Premium folio cases will have a certification on the international protection (IP) marking scale to show how much protection the case provides to dust intake and particulate matter.
