Lenovo TB-8504X Android 8.1 - Lenovo Weather Permissions

Hi everyone, I'm new here.

I just updated my tablet to 8.1 and noticed the new Lenovo Weather asked for new, quite "weird" permissions:

GPS is fine to show my location, but why it needs storage access permission and, most important, PHONE permission?

 

Maybe it needs it to read IMEI or IMSI , maybe it is not for nefarious purposes, but I'd like to know something more about this issue...

If Lenovo wants to do something malicious on your device, they don't need a weather app for that as they can just easily hide it behind system processes where no one can look into. So I wouldn't worry about that app too much or start worrying about the system as a whole.
