On the last month, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) as an affordable alternative to the Tab S5e. Now, the South Korean has quietly unveiled a more compact model that features an S Pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 features an 8-inch LCD display that has the same resolution of its 10-inch sibling – 1920 x 1200 pixels. The S Pen included in the package seems too similar to the one featured by the Galaxy Note 8 and slots in the tablet itself. The new Tablet is powered by the Exynos 7904 chipset just like the larger model, but it has 3GB of RAM. The Storage is the same, 32GB of Storage with just 22GB available for the user. Thankfully the Tab supports memory expansion via a micro SDcard.
The tablet is fueled by a 4,200mAh battery that promises up to 11 hours of web browsing. If you grab the 4G model, you can still get up 11 hours of internet usage on the go. The Tab A 8.0 weighs in at 325 grams and has an overall thickness of 8.9mm. The camera department is composed by a standard single 8MP rear camera, on the front users will have a 5MP for video-calling and conferences. On the connectivity side, there’s Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 5.0 LE for wireless, plus the optional LTE. The Tab counts with a standard micro USB 2.0 port and 3.5mm headphone jack.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 launch was quite unexpected, and for that reason, there’s still no much information about its price. However, we already know that the compact tablet will be available in the UK, New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam.
