Lenovo Tab P11 Pro - change screen resolution when connected to a external monitor

2021-02-23, 21:39 PM

Hi All, 

 

I would like to ask could the tab itself to change the resolution when it connected to an external monitor (1980 x 1020) like the Samsung Dex ?

 

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Community Forums @fatrixiiii!

 

Nice to have you here!

 

Upon checking through the specifications of Lenovo Tab P11 Pro, the USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 port can be use for OTG, data transfer, Power Delivery, extend screen, T-Hub and USB Type-C audio devices.

With this, you can definitely connect this to an external monitor as long as the appropriate adapter is used.

 

However and to set your expectations, the Tab P11 Pro's display will still be at : 2560 x 1600 when plugged to an external display/monitor. 

The resolution itself will entirely depend once it has been plugged to the external display.

 

Thanks,

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

"The resolution itself will entirely depend once it has been plugged to the external display."

 

From your last sentence,  please clarify whether the resolution would automatically changed to suit the external display i.e. 1980 x 1020 or would remain the same ?  

 

Nonetheless,  for my case,  it didnt change as the external display is not diaplaying full screen.

 

Further more,.is it able to switch off the tab's screen when plugged in for external display?

 

Thanks.

Thanks for responding @fatrixiiii!

 

Based on online reviews about the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro, there are some users who have reported that they were able to get a resolution of 2160p when plugged to an external display using  a USB C to HDMI adaptor though, some weren't able to indicate if they've used an external monitor or a TV.

I'm sure that other Tab P11 Pro users here at the Community Forums can share their experiences as well.

 

As for the tablet itself if it can be switched off when plugged to an external display, it is usually required for its screen to be always on so that you can use it still while connected to an external video output.

 

Thanks,
