The largest tablets in 2024: an exhaustive list

Last updated on June 21, 2024

The following article lists all large tablets with optional / detachable keyboards available in 2024. However, it does not contain devices whose keyboard is permanently attached to the screen, even with a 360-degree hinge (convertibles).

Author Johannes Eva (viola)I am a classical musician (violist) with 20 years of professional experience in orchestra and chamber music. For years, I have been using all kinds of large and very large tablets as part of my work as a musician.

I also have a degree in computer science, and I have always been interested in computer hardware. This article is therefore a summary of the hardware and practical side of using very large tablets.

I spent my school years in France, and this article must be riddled with spelling and grammar mistakes, for which I apologize. Feel free to send me any corrections!

There is no test protocol! I use the most different tablets possible in my real life as a musician, which includes practicing, rehearsing and playing concerts.

The tablets and e-readers are purchased with my own funds and used as long as I please. This means that my tablet reviews are always independent, long term and real life reviews.

The largest tablets in 2024: specifications, pictures and more obscure details

For each extra-large tablet, I listed not only the most well-known specs, but also some hard-to-find details such as the minimum brightness, or the weight with and without keyboard. I hope that some freaks out there will enjoy this meticulous work.

1. Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra

The largest and best Android tablet

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, released in August 2023, simply is the largest (non-foldable) tablet available on the market – together with its predecessor, the S8 Ultra.

Foldable tablets such as the LG Gram Fold or the HP Spectre Foldable 17 do have bigger displays, but they run Windows and are way heavier, thicker when folded, and twice as expensive. See at the bottom of the page for more details on foldable tablets.

Pros

  • Largest display on the market
  • Bright screen (600 nits)
  • Excellent battery life
  • MicroSD card slot
  • Bundled stylus (S Pen)
  • 5 years of security updates
  • Superfast charging (up to 45W)

Cons

  • Glossy display (prone to reflections)
  • 16:10 aspect ratio is great for movies, not for work
  • Very expensive

2. Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

Still the second-best large tablet in 2024

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra tech specs: OS: Android 12, upgradable to Android 14, One UI 6 / Processor: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (4 nm) / RAM: 8GB, 12GB or 16GB / Storage: 128GB, 256GB or 512GB / microSD slot: yes (microSDXC) / Color: graphite / Connections: USB 3.2 Type-C (Gen. 1) / Battery life: up to 10.5 hours (11,200 or 10880 mAh / 42.21 Wh) / Released: February 2022

Screen specs: Super AMOLED, 120Hz, HDR10+ / Size: 14.6 inches / Max brightness: 614 cd/m² with 795 cd/m² peak brightness (Notebookcheck) / Min brightness: 1.5 cd/m² / Resolution: 2960 × 1848 pixels, 240 ppi / Aspect ratio: 16:10 (1.60)

Weight: without keyboard: 25.7 ounces – 1.60 pounds – 728 grams / with “Book Cover Keyboard”: 48.4 ounces – 3.02 pounds – 1.37 kg

Best large tablets – Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has been superseded by the S9 ultra, but remains a powerful, first-class XXL tablet. Due to its age, it can be way more affordable than its successor.

When it comes to performance, the S8 Ultra, equipped with a somewhat dated Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, falls short of matching the iPad Pro. But compared to Lenovo’s flagship, it still holds its own brilliantly.

Pros

  • Same pros as Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra, but also:
  • Most affordable huge tablet
  • Many used and refurbished buying options

Cons

  • Same cons as the S9 Ultra, but also:
  • Released long ago, in April 2022
  • Security updates only until April 2027

3. Lenovo Tab Extreme

Huge and slightly more affordable

Lenovo Tab Extreme tech specs: OS: Android 13, soon upgradable to Android 14 / Processor: Mediatek Dimensity 9000 (4 nm) / RAM: 12GB / Storage: 256GB / microSD slot: yes (microSDXC) / Colors: Storm Grey / Connections: 2 × USB Type-C (1 × 3.2 Gen 1 and 1× 2.0) / Battery life: up to 11.0 hours (12,300 mAh) / Released: June 2023

Screen specs: OLED, 120Hz, HDR10+ / Size: 14.5 inches / Brightness: 500 nits (Lenovo), 479 cd/m² (Notebookcheck) / Min brightness: 4.4 cd/m² / Resolution: 3000 × 1876 pixels, 244 ppi / Aspect ratio: 16:10 (1.60)

Weight: without keyboard: 26.1 ounces – 1.63 pounds – 740 grams / with “Lenovo Tab Extreme Keyboard”: 53.1 ounces – 3.32 pounds – 1.55 kg

Lenovo Tab Extreme - Almost the largest tablet available

Two USB ports, an excellent keyboard and superfast charging are some outstanding features of the Lenovo Tab Extreme. Image credit: Lenovo

The Lenovo Tab Extreme, released in June 2023, is the third-largest non-foldable tablet money can buy. Its display is only 0.1 inches (2.54 mm) smaller than the Galaxy Tab S8/S9 Ultra.

The Lenovo Tab Extreme features 2 USB ports, which is a rarity among Android tablets. It has a great (albeit optional) keyboard, and the fastest charge (68 W) of all large tablets. Keep in mind that its max luminosity is not on par with comparable offers from Apple and Samsung: don’t plan to use the Tab Extreme outside on sunny days.

Pros

  • Beautiful, huge OLED display
  • More affordable than Apple’s and Samsung’s flagships
  • 2 USB ports
  • Great “Magic Keyboard”-style keyboard (optional)
  • Stylus is included (Precision Pen 3)
  • Superfast 68 W charging

Cons

  • Display max brightness (500 nits) is ok, but not great
  • Only Wi-Fi, no 5G option
  • Very reflective display
  • 16:10 aspect ratio is not ideal for everyone
  • Only four years of security updates (until March 2027)

Note: The Tab Extreme is not always available in the USA and Canada.

Asus ROG Flow Z13 (2023) tech specs: OS: Windows 11 / Processor: 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H / GPU: up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060, 65W, 8GB / RAM: 16GB (2 × 8GB LPDDR5) / Storage: 512GB or 1TB (PCIe 4.0 NVMe) / microSD slot: yes (UHS-II microSD) / Colors: black / Connections: 1 × 3.1 Gen1 and 2 × USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 / Battery life: up to 5.0 hours (56 Wh) / Released: February 2023

Screen specs: IPS-panel with DDS + G-Sync, 100% DCI-P3, Pantone Validated, 165 Hz, 3 ms / Size: 13.4 inches / Max brightness: 500 nits (Asus), 537 cd/m² (Notebookcheck) / Min brightness: 27.2 cd/m² / Resolution: 2560 × 1600 pixels, 225 ppi / Aspect ratio: 16:10 (1.60)

Weight: without keyboard: 41.6 ounces – 2.60 pounds – 1.18 kg / with keyboard: 53.6 ounces – 3.35 pounds – 1.52 kg / Power supply: 16.9 ounces – 1.06 pounds – 479 g

The largest and most powerful Windows tablet - Asus ROG Z13 Flow

There’s nothing quite like the Asus ROG Z13 Flow: it’s by far the most powerful tablet on the market, and only the 13-inch iPad Pro can stand up to it. Image credit: Asus

The Asus ROG Flow Z13 (2023) is both the largest and most powerful Windows tablet available to date. In terms of performance, it is the only tablet that can stand up to the new 13-inch iPad Pro.

While iPad Pros are particularly popular in creative fields, the Flow Z13 is aimed at gamers and users of software requiring a high-performance graphics card – here a GeForce RTX 4060 in the most expensive configuration.

Asus ROG Flow Z13: Pros

  • Unique device, most powerful tablet on the market
  • Best pick for gamers and video editors
  • Stunning specifications and connectivity
  • Keyboard included
  • Stylus compatibility (Asus Pen)

Cons

  • Poor battery life
  • Thick and massive
  • Heavy power supply
  • Very Expensive

Asus ProArt PZ13 (2024) tech specs: OS: Windows 11 Home / Processor: Snapdragon® X Series (unspecified) / GPU: Qualcomm Adreno / RAM: up to 16GB (LPDDR5) / Storage: up to 1TB (PCIe 4.0) / microSD slot: yes (UHS-II full-size SD and microSD combo) / Colors: black / Connections: 2 × USB 4 Type-C (40 Gbps) / Battery life: unknown (70 Wh) / Released: TBR Q3 2024

Screen specs: ASUS Lumina OLED touchscreen with stylus support, 100% DCI-P3, Pantone Validated, 60 Hz, 0.2 ms response time / Size: 13.3 inches / Max brightness: 500 nits (Asus) / Min brightness: unknown / Resolution: 2880 × 1800 pixels (3K), 255 ppi / Aspect ratio: 16:10 (1.60)

Weight: without keyboard: 30.0 ounces – 1.87 pounds – 850 g

Note: The ProArt PZ13 is expected to be available in Q3 2024.

6. Onyx Boox Tab X

The largest and best e-book-reader

Onyx Boox Tab X tech specs: OS: based on Android 11 with Google Mobile Services support, upgradable to Android 12 / Processor: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 (11 nm), released in 2019 / GPU: Qualcomm Adreno 610 / RAM: 6GB / Storage: 128GB / microSD slot: no / Colors: black / Connections: 1x USB 2.0 Type-C / Battery life: up to 25 hours (6300 mAh) / Released: January 2023

Screen specs: Mobius Carta1250 e-Ink with touch support (inductive + capacitive), 16 shades of grey / Size: 13.3 inches / Max brightness: N/A / Resolution: 1650 × 2200 dots, 207 ppi / Aspect ratio: 4:3 (1.33)

Weight: without keyboard: 19.8 ounces – 1.23 pounds – 560 grams / no official keyboard available, works with any Bluetooth keyboard.

The biggest E-Reader, the Onyx Boox Tab X (e-ink), perfect for text and sheet music

Even under the brightest sun, the Boox Tab X remains readable… but it supports only grayscale content (for example, text or sheet music). Image credit: tablets-for-musicians.com

The Onyx Boox Tab X is not a tablet, but the biggest e-book reader available on the market. Unlike many other e-readers that run custom operating systems, the Tab X runs Android and has access to the Play Store.

Don’t expect the Tab X to behave like a tablet, though: electronic ink is not yet compatible with anything else than reading text (or, as in my case, sheet music) and displaying grayscale content. For undistracted office work, though, the Tab X is a good option.

Onyx Boox Tab X: Pros

  • Large 13.3-inch screen with e-Ink technology
  • Very thin (0.27 in / 6.8 mm) and light (1.24 lb / 560 g)
  • Best outdoor readability, even on sunny days
  • Outstanding battery life
  • Best extra-large e-reader on the market

Cons

  • Display lag and poor reactivity compared to tablets
  • Poor performance
  • Outdated Android version
  • No cellular option (Wi-Fi only)
  • No camera (e.g., to scan sheet music)
  • Very expensive

6. Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook

The largest Chromebook with a detachable keyboard

Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook tech specs: OS: ChromeOS / Processor: Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 (8nm), released in May 2021 / RAM: 4GB or 8GB / Storage: 64GB, 128GB or 256GB / microSD slot: no / Colors: Abyss Blue, Storm Grey / Connections: 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type-C) with Power Delivery + DisplayPort / Battery life: up to 11 hours (42 Wh) / Released: August 2021

Screen specs: OLED, 100% DCI-P3 / Size: 13.3 inches / Max brightness: 400 nits (Lenovo), 369 cd/m² (Notebookcheck) / Min brightness: 0.7 cd/m² / Resolution: 1920 × 1080 pixels, 166 ppi / Aspect ratio: 16:10 (1.60)

Weight: without keyboard: 25.2 ounces – 1.58 pounds – 715 grams / with “folio keyboard”: 36.5 ounces – 2.28 pounds – 1.04 kg

The best large-screen Chromebook with detachable keyboard - Lenovo Duet 5 Chromebook

The Lenovo Duet 5 is the only Chromebook with a large display and a detachable keyboard. Image credit: Lenovo

The Lenovo Duet 5 is a 2-in-1 tablet that runs on Chrome OS and has access to the Play Store. It features a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen with an unexciting resolution of 1920 × 1080 and a luminosity of 400 nits. The Duet 5 is thin and light, weighing 1.58 pounds (715 grams) and measuring 0.28 inches (7.2 mm) in thickness.

The Lenovo Duet 5 is a great option for anyone looking for a much cheaper alternative to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. It sure has more than a few drawbacks, such as the lack of fingerprint sensor and the ultra-slow performance. But these drawbacks come with an unmatchable price: you could get almost three Duet 5 for the price of a single 12.9-inch iPad Pro!

Lenovo Duet 5: Pros

  • Largest Chromebook with a detachable keyboard
  • Great OLED display
  • Two USB Type-C ports with DisplayPort
  • Fanless
  • Cheapest large tablet available in 2024

Cons

  • Outdated hardware, slow performance
  • Low display resolution
  • Max brightness (400 nits) could be higher
  • No cellular option (Wi-Fi only)
  • No SD card reader, no fingerprint sensor

7. Apple iPad Pro 13-inch (2024)

The largest and best iPad

I’m currently (mid-june 2024) testing the new 13-inch iPad Pro. Update and pictures coming soon!

As you can see, I’m still working on this page!

10. Microsoft Surface Pro 11 (2024)

The largest and best iPad

13. Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2022)

The second-largest iPad: still excellent and fast

iPad Pro 12.9 (2022) tech specs: Display: 12.9″ Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion and True Tone / Brightness: up to 600 nits (SDR), up to 1000 nits (XDR max full screen), 1600 nits peak (HDR content only) / Resolution: 2048 × 2732 pixels, 264 ppi / OS: iPadOS / Processor: Apple Silicon M2 / RAM: 8GB or 16GB / Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB or 2TB / microSD slot: No / Colors: Silver, space gray / Weight: 1.51 pounds (685 grams) / Connections: USB-C Thunderbolt/USB-4 | Battery life: up to 10 hours (10758 mAh / 40.88 Wh)

Largest tablets FAQ

What is the fastest tablet available in 2024?

Well, the fastest tablet is probably not the one you think! The fastest “conventional” tablet is, as expected, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022 (aka 6th generation), boosted by its Apple M2 octa-core CPU.

The new 13-inch iPad Pro 2024 will be even faster, featuring M3 processors, which debuted with the MacBook Pro in October 2023. However, the fastest tablet available is not an Apple iPad, but a tablet made by Asus, the ROG Flow Z13 (2023).

The Asus ROG Flow Z13 is a 2-in-1 PC with a detachable keyboard. It features an Intel Core i9-13900H CPU and, in its most powerful configuration, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU. This gamer tablet is also, unfortunately, the heaviest you can imagine: it weights not less than 2.60 pounds (1.18 kg)!

What is the cheapest large tablet available in 2024?

The cheapest and largest tablet that I can recommend is the Lenovo Tab P12, released in July 2023. This Android tablet has, by far, the best “price-to-display-size” ratio of any extra-large tablet.

Note that the IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook, also by Lenovo, has en even larger 13.3-inches screen and a great “price-to-surface” ratio, but it came out in 2021. Therefore, I would not recommend it, but I hope that Lenovo soon releases its successor.

What is the cheapest large iPad available in 2024?

If you’re entrenched in the Apple ecosystem, or simply want the biggest possible iPad for the best price, your options are more limited. There simply is no cheap and large iPad available.

Your best option is probably to get a renewed, refurbished or used iPad Pro 12.9. I recommend the 5th generation, released in May 2021. This model is old enough to be largely available at great prices, but still has a fast M1 chip. Apple’s software support for iPad Pro devices has proved to be very long, and you’ll get security updates at least until 2030, probably even longer.

What are Google Mobile Services, and why is it important?

Google Mobile Services (GMS) is a collection of Android apps from Google that are typically pre-installed on Android smartphones and tablets, such as Google Chrome, YouTube, Google Play and Gmail.

When a tablet dos not come with GMS, several implications arise:

  • Limited App Access: no direct access to the Google Play Store, which significantly limits the availability of apps and games. Users may have to rely on alternative app stores or sideload apps.
  • No Google Apps: essential Google apps and services like Gmail, Maps, and YouTube will not be pre-installed. Installing these apps through other means (e.g., via Gbox on Huawei’s tablets) may work, but can’t be considered as reliable enough.
  • Security Risks: devices missing GMS may not receive important security updates provided through Google Play Protect. Also, apps using Google for login authentication may not work.

I wound NOT recommend purchasing any Android tablets which do not include GMS, such as the Xiaomi Pad 6 Max 14 or Huawei tablets. That’s why these tablets, although mentioned on this page for exhaustiveness, are not included in my lists of the largest tablets.

What's the largest tablet made by Xiaomi?

As of March 2024, the largest tablet by Xiaomi is the Xiaomi Pad 6 Max 14. The Pad 6 Max stands out for having an excellent battery life and performance, outpacing rivals like the iPad Pro 12.9 (2022). It even holds its own against the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra in benchmarks, despite its older Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.

Unfortunately, the Xiaomi Pad 6 Max 14 is not officially available outside of China as of now. This comes with a set of drawbacks, including the absence of 5G and GPS, and the challenges of importing, such as missing Google Mobile Services (GMS) and limited language options. Even with these downsides, it certainly is a compelling option, especially for technophiles seeking a high-quality, large-format tablet without spending too much money.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 Max 14 has been reviewed by Notebookcheck, and can be imported via TradingShenzhen.

What is the biggest tablet released by Huawei?

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2, unveiled in September 2023, emerges as Huawei’s flagship tablet, directly challenging the iPad Pro 12.9-inch with its larger 13.2-inch OLED display.

The MatePad Pro 13.2 runs on HarmonyOS 4, not Android. It has not 5G version, and worse, it does not support Google Mobile Services. GMS can be installed via an application called Gbox, but Google applications are not easily accessible to normal users.

Despite its first-class hardware and superb large screen, this tablet is not recommendable due to software limitations and the absence of Google applications.

The MatePad Pro 13.2 has been reviewed by GSMArena, Forbes and Trusted Reviews.
