Hot on the heels of announcing their new flagship Galaxy Tab S4 tablet, Samsung is announcing another, cheaper option.
The company has officially announced the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 which, as the name suggests, boasts a 10.5-inch display. Unlike the Galaxy Tab S4, though, this panel is a TFT LCD with a resolution of 1920×1200. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor under the hood which is coupled with 3GB of RAM.
The Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inch has 32GB of built-in storage and there is a microSD card slot that supports expandable storage up to 400GB. There is an 8MP camera on the back and a 5MP front-facing camera on the other side. The Galaxy Tab A’s battery measures in at 7300mAh, it’s running Android 8.1 Oreo, and it has a USB Type-C port for charging.
Samsung is including some kid-oriented apps, preinstalling titles like Toca Hair Salon 3 and BRIO World – Railway. There are eight titles built for kids already installed on the tablet out of the box.
Unfortunately, Samsung isn’t announcing a release date for the Galaxy Tab A 10.5-inch just yet, and there is no word on pricing just yet. There will be Wi-Fi-only and LTE-equipped models.
The Galaxy Tab A will probably not cost a lot of money, and it appears that Samsung is aiming to have a more kid-friendly tablet with this newest Galaxy Tab A model. Do you think you’ll pick up this new option depending on price?
