The Lenovo Tab v7 is an upcoming budget phablet with a 5180mAh battery and Android Pie

There have been some rumors floating around about a new Lenovo tablet being released in the near future. Thanks to some FCC documents, we have learned a little bit about this device and just recently we discovered even more thanks to the Google Play Developer Console Device Catalog. It’s unclear what the company will call the smartphone as the Google Play Developer Console Device Catalog has it labeled as the Lenovo Tab V7, but some are speculating that it could be marketed as the Lenovo Phab 3.

As far as FCC documents are concerned, we know there will be two different versions of this upcoming device. One will have the model number PB-6505M while the other will carry the model number PB-6505MC. Thanks to the discovery of the FCC documents by Nashville Chatter, we get this little mockup of what the back of the device looks like along with its dimensions. The FCC says we’re looking at a device that is 178mm tall, 86mm wide, and has a diagonal length of 198mm. They also tell us the device will have a 5,180mAh capacity battery and will launch with Android Pie.

Now that we know what the model number of at least one of the devices will be, we went digging through the Google Play Developer Console Device Catalog and found the information shown below. It labels the device as the Lenovo Tab V7 and reveals some of the specs that we should expect it to have. At least as far as the PB-6505M is concerned, the catalog is telling us it’s going to have a phone form factor, include 3GB of RAM, and have an 18:9 display with 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution.

It’s also not expected to be a powerful device with its lower mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset. Again, it’s unclear exactly what Lenovo will be calling this device when it officially launches. But this does give Lenovo fans who want to know what they should expect from them in the future a taste of what is to come.
