Samsung Galaxy Tab A8

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 gets unveiled today as promised. The device is the firm latest entry-level tablet that is made to succeed the Galaxy Tab A7, bringing with it a slightly larger display with a standard aspect ratio, enhanced multitasking ability, improved performance, and more storage.

It has a 10.5-inch WUXGA LCD TFT display with 16:10 aspect ratio, and is powered by an unspecified 2.0GHz octa-core processor that is speculated to be Unisoc T618. Inside is also 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, although 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is also offered as an option. For those who want more, there is a 128GB storage option with 4GB RAM.

The storage can be further expanded up to 1TB via microSD card. Above the display is a 5-megapixel fixed-focus camera for selfie and video-calling, while there is a single 8-megapixel autofocus camera at the back for taking photos and recording videos. In addition, four stereo speakers enhanced by Dolby Atmos are equipped with the Galaxy Tab A8 for immersive listening experience.

Its superb multitasking feature comes into play in the software aspect. It has features like pinch to zoom, floating windows, drag and split, and split-screen, thanks to the One UI 3.1 that comes pre-installed. The whole system relied on a 7,040mAh battery for power with supports for 15W fast charging, but the firm is including a 7.5W charger in the retail box.
