Earlier this month, Samsung finally launched its budget tablet dubbed Galaxy Tab A7 alongside its new Wireless Charger Trio. Soon after the launch, we started hearing reports about the tablet making its way to the Indian market. In fact, the Tab A7 recently went up for pre-booking in Taiwan and now it’s time for the Indian consumers.
The South Korean market has now opened up the pre-booking of the tablet in India. The Galaxy Tab A7 comes in three color options namely Dark Grey, Silver, and Gold. It also arrives in two connectivity options – 4G and LTE. The tablet comes in a single 32GB storage option. The WiFi version will set you back around INR 17,999 (i.e. $243) while the LTE is priced at INR 21,999 (i.e. $298). It is worth noting that these are promotional prices. After the prebook period, the WiFi version will cost you INR 20,999 (i.e. $284) while the LTE version will set you back INR 25,999 ($352).
As expected, Samsung is also offering a bunch of promotional offers that interested buyers can avail of. Those who will pre-book the tablet can get Book Cover worth INR 3,749 at just INR 1,875. Samsung has also partnered with ICICI Bank to offer cashback of up to INR 2,000 on Debit and Credit card EMIs. Speaking of EMIs, you can also go for No Cost EMI options. Lastly, we’re looking at a free YouTube Premium subscription of two months.
It is also worth noting that there is no information on when this pre-booking period will see its end. The same goes for the shipment deliveries.
Galaxy Tab A7 specifications, features
To recall, the Galaxy Tab A7 is equipped with a 10.4-inch TFT display panel with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels. Under the hood, the tablet runs on Snapdragon 662 chipset paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB built-in storage. The internal memory is expandable by up to 1TB via a micro SD card. For optics, there is a single 8MP primary sensor on the back and a single 5MP front snapper on the front for selfie and video calls.
All of these are backed by a large 7,040 mAh battery packed inside. Sadly, there is no information on the charging speed. Well, we’re expecting to be the standard 10W. Other connectivity features include Bluetooth 5.0, single-band WiFi, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
