TAB P11 PRO - video out

2021-04-30, 14:58 PM

Hi - before purchasing a P11 PRO, I'd like to know for sure if the USB C output supports sending video (and other images) to a larger screen - via a suitable HDMI adapter of course.

It seems some tablets do and some don't.

Does it depend on the model variant of the USB C port, or is it software related (or both I guess)?

Many thanks.

The spec of that tablet looks great, but this functionality is vital for my work purposes.

 

[supplementary question - - do any other lenovo tablet models support this function?]

Hi, see this thread:

In Short, mirroring works at the native tablet display resolution, by enabling desktop mode in developer options using some third party software and some adb commands you can get an external display to work as a second screen at native external resolution including HDR on some apps, but its a pain to set up and use and you're at risk of causing some Lenovo services to start crashing.

Good day.

 

Please have a look at: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_tab_p11_pro_swsg_en_202011.pdf

 

The note near the bottom of page 1 suggests no video-out capability from the port:

"USB-C connector only supports the USB-C to 3.5mm digital adapter to connect a 3.5mm audio plug."

 

HTH to clarify a bit.

OK thanks for this info - that is different answer than I got from an adviser at the FNAC!  This why I'm trying to make sure.

 

This seems to be the spec - which suggest extend screen is possible

 

"1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 (support OTG, data transfer, Power Delivery, extend screen, T-Hub and USB-C audio devices)"

Thanks for the various replies.

Given the uncertainty, I've decided to order a Samsung S7, which definitely provides this functionality.

Pity, as I have generally had good kit from Lenovo in the past.

I suggest that Lenovo should make this explicit, either way.
