The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8
Samsung is working on an affordable 10 ”tablet, which will likely arrive next month. We already have it part 1 in some text, now nOnLeaks and 91mobiles have come together for a pretty complete sheet.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) will feature a 10.5-inch display, a regular LCD that has a 1,920 x 1,200 px resolution (16:10 scoop ratio). The refresh rate is 60 Hz, of course. There will be quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, so this cheap tablet has some entertainment potential.
It will not be a gaming powerhouse with its Unicorn Tiger T618 chip set. The 12 nm chipset consists of Cor Cortex-A75 cores (at 2.0 GHz) and efficient A55 cores (at 1.8 GHz), a Mali-G52 MP2 GPU and an LTE modem.
Some versions of the tablet will have LTE connectivity, others will have Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi. RAM and storage rations will start at an affordable 3/32 GB and include reasonable 4/64 GB and 4/128 GB options.
The Tab A8 will run with a 10.5 (2021) 7,040 mAh battery, which should support fast charging (it’s unclear how fast). For reference, the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020) has a 7,040 mAh battery with 15W charging.
In addition to the quad speakers, the tablet will also have a 3.5mm audio jack. And there should be a 5 MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls and an 8 MP camera on the back. The tablet offers face unlock and a side mounted L-fingerprint reader.
The tablet will measure 246.7 161.8 x 6.9 mm (8.7 mm, if you include the camera bump). It will be available in Gold, Silver and Green.
The Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) is expected to arrive on October 21, almost a month earlier. Price is INR 19,000 or even higher (this varies $ 260 / € 220%). Wi-Fi only Tab A7 10.4 (2020) starts at INR 21,000, but currently it is INR 18,000 INR.
