Samsung is preparing to launch a new A-series tablet to replace the Galaxy Tab A7. According to reports, the next tablet in the A series is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021. This tablet uses a 10.5-inch display and has now appeared on the FCC certification website. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 with the model number SM-X205 is currently on the FCC list. New products usually pass FCC certification near the launch, which also means that the launch event may take place in a few weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 TUV Rheinland certification shows that this tablet comes with a 7040 mAh battery and supports 7.8W charging (5V, 1.55A). According to previous reports, the Galaxy Tab A8 2021 will use a 10.5-inch 1920 × 1200 display. This device will also support a 60Hz refresh rate as well as a Unisoc Tiger T618 chip. In the camera department, this tablet will come with a 5MP front camera as well as an 8MP rear camera.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 speculations
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 2021 are unclear right now. We expect more leaks to pop out as well as a confirmation from Samsung about its launch.
