With the Galaxy Tab A8 (2021), a fairly inexpensive Android tablet from Samsung is likely to come our way soon. After the first leaks, a press photo has now appeared. But there are no big surprises to be seen here.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 (2021): First official picture shows cheap tablet
We have known for a few weeks what the Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) might look like. Now there is a first press render, the one detailed look allowed on the upcoming Android tablet. Accordingly, hardly anything will change compared to the predecessor. Samsung only opted for a round version instead of a square version for the camera. The LC display has a diagonal of 10.4 inches.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) will have a Metal back and have quite thick margins (source: Evan Blass on Twitter). In this price range, that is certainly bearable. A classic headphone jack and a USB-C port have now also been confirmed. However, no information is available yet on the performance of the battery.
The heart of the inexpensive tablet from Samsung is likely to be the Tiger T618 processor from Unisoc, with at least one version of 3 GB of RAM at the side. Android 11 is used as the operating system, with a Update to Android 12 can be calculated promptly. Samsung has opted for 32 and 64 GB of storage. It remains unclear whether the memory can be expanded again via a microSD card. Regardless of this, a WLAN and LTE version of the tablet can be assumed.
