Nowadays there aren’t many companies betting on Android-powered tablets. While Apple remains a strong dominant in this particular segment with its iPadOS, Android OEMs struggle to make these devices popular as smartphones. However, there are still strong contenders investing in devices with large screens such as Samsung, Huawei, and Lenovo. The first is expected to launch a set of new tablets this year including a flagship Tab S8 series and a new affordable Galaxy Tab A7 Lite.
Worth noting that the Galaxy Tab A-series already is meant for the cost-effective segment. Those in the premium category have the Tab S7 filled with flagship appeal. So, what is the point of a Galaxy Tab A7 Lite? Apparently, Samsung wants to make a tablet that is even more affordable than the original Tab A7 Lite to cater to those in the low-budget segment. We’ve been seeing rumors about this tablet for quite a long time. Today, however, we the consistent proof of its existence.
The upcoming Galaxy Tab A7 Lite has passed by China’s TENAA certification a couples of week ago. It confirms the design of the tablet that already has been leaked in several renders. Now, however, the certification is updated and brings us some details about the internals. Without further ado, let’s dive into the specifications coming with this new slate.
Galaxy Tab A7 Lite alleged specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite bears (SM-T225C) carries an 8.68-inch LCD offering resolution of 1,340 x 800 pixels. It has huge bezels all around and the top one comprises a 2MP selfie camera. The right side serves as a home for the power button and volume rocker.
Under the hood, the tablet carries a MediaTek Helio P22T chipset. Depending on the variant its comes with either 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of Storage. Worth noting that any of the variants come with microSD card support for further memory expansion. The tablet runs Android 11 straight out of the box. That’s not a big surprise but still is a surprise. After all, not all companies working with old MediaTek chips manage to bring them to newer Android versions. That said the device comes with One UI 3.1 on top.
The lights are kept by a 5,100mAh battery complete with 15W of charging. In terms of optics, it comes with just a single 8MP camera. However, who is buying a tablet-like this one for taking good photos? The 8MP camera will get the job done, fairly enough. The overall dimensions are 212.4 x 124.7 x 8mm and the tablet weighs in at 300 grams.
Despite the listing, rumors suggest that the tablet will only go official in June.
