The MWC19 is still days away, and Samsung is already grabbing the headlines with a couple of announcements. While the Korean firm made a splash yesterday with the unveiling of the affordable, thin, and lightweight Galaxy Tab S5e, it also refreshed its Galaxy Tab A series with the unveiling of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 – a much more budget-friendly Android tablet that is at the moment limited to the German market.
Much like the Galaxy Tab S5e, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 is encased in a metal casing, drops AMOLED panel for LCD display with chunkier bezels and thicker profile. And as the name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 flaunts a 10.1-inch display with full-HD (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, and is powered by the Exynos 7904 SoC. The SoC works with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which you can expand up to 400 GB via microSD.
On the bright side, the new Galaxy slate comes fitted with a 6,150 mAh, smaller than that of the Galaxy S5e, but that’s the price you pay for its affordability. The device uses an 8-megapixel rear camera coupled with a 5-megapixel selfie camera with face unlock feature. the device boots Android 9 Pie operating system right out of the box, while it will hit the shelves in two variants – Wi-Fi only and LTE.
