It has a Quad HD display and supports USB OTG as well as charging of your other mobile devices. The audio in this 13.3-inch tablet is courtesy of an 8-watt JBL sound system with subwoofer. And according to Lenovo Philippines’ Product Manager Sam Barretto, it will come with JBL earphones when you purchase one of these.
