The market of Android tablets isn’t the big focus of Android OEMs right now. After all, Google operating system still has a lackluster experience when we’re looking at tablets. Therefore, a few companies are working on it and that includes Samsung. The Korean firm is one of the strongest firms in the Android tablet segment and there is a good reason for it. It delivers an entirely new experience thanks to a set of tablet-focused features. The company has a wide range of products like the flagship Galaxy Tab S series and the mid-range Galaxy Tab A series. As per a new report, Samsung is gearing up to introduce a new mid-range tablet dubbed Galaxy Tab A8 2021. The device has emerged in a set of new renders.

The new high-quality renders come as a courtesy from @OnLeaks and 91Mobiles. The device will succeed last year’s Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 and will stick to this very same 10.4-inch display with an LCD featuring Full HD+ resolution. There’s no mention of a high-refresh rate and we assume that wouldn’t be the case here. The body has aluminum alloy and the dimensions are 246.7 x 161.8 x 6.9 mm. Just like the great majority of Android tablets, there is a single 8 MP camera on the back. Of course, there is also a selfie snapper for video conferences and modest selfies.
Other features confirmed by the leaks are a set of Quad Speakers, probably tuned with Dolby Atmos support. Moreover, the device will have a headphone jack and will ship with a USB C port. Samsung will be selling this product in Wi-Fi only and LTE versions. That’s a usual approach from Samsung and the LTE variant will probably be pricier than the Wi-Fi-only option. Since it has just 4G, we have to expect it with some of the current 4G chipsets available in the market. We haven’t been seeing many 4G Exynos-powered devices coming this year. So we can expect it to have either a Snapdragon SoC or a MediaTek 4G SoC. Despite Samsung’s growing partnership with MediaTek, we expect the A8 to pack a Snapdragon chip. Maybe a Snapdragon 732G, but this is mere speculation.
Unfortunately, other details regarding the Galaxy Tab A8 are unclear right now. We expect more leaks to pop out as well as a confirmation from Samsung about its launch.
