“The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) comes with an 8-inch screen and a beefy 4,200mAh battery”
Samsung has quietly unveiled its new tablet called Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019). The tab is a slightly compact version of Tab A’s 10.1 (2019) model that was announced last month. Unlike its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) comes with S Pen support that allows you to write or draw “comfortably” on the screen. The S Pen is touted to have IP68 certification that makes it waterproof and dust-proof.
As for the specifications, the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) sports an 8-inch LCD screen with 1,920 x 1,200-pixel resolution. The tab is driven by 1.8GHz Exynos 7904 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage which is expandable up to 512GB using a microSD card. In the camera department, the device rocks an 8-megapixel sensor (with no LED flash) at the back and a 5-megapixel shooter up front for selfies and video calling.
The entire setup is run by an impressive 4,200mAh battery that is rated to offer up to 11 hours of web browsing. On the connectivity front, the tab boasts of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G LTE (optional), micro USB 2.0 port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) is likely to boot Android (version not known)-based Samsung’s custom skin out of the box. The tablet lacks a fingerprint sensor.
The price of the Galaxy Tab 8.0 hasn’t been announced yet, but it seems to be available in local authorised stores in Thailand. Interested buyers can purchase the device in Black and Grey colour options.
