Samsung has launched a new entry-level tablet today (July 5, 2019). It is the 8-inch Galaxy Tab A model for this year. This slate has a 1200x800 resolution, 2GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 425 processor.

Samsung has officially unveiled a new tablet today (July 5, 2019). It is a Galaxy Tab A with an 8-inch screen, which means it is known as the Tab A (8.0", 2019), along the same lines as its predecessor. As this display has 2GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 425 SoC, it can be considered a budget slate for this year.

The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) has a 1200x800 resolution across a 16:10 aspect ratio (like the first-generation Galaxy Note). It has 32GB of fixed storage, which could be seen as a little disappointing; however, this Tab A can also support microSD cards of up to 512GB in capacity. The new Galaxy Tab A runs an OS based on Android 9.0 (Pie).

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) also offers stereo speakers, a 5100mAh battery and a form-factor that, as the OEM asserts, will promote one-handed usage. It consists of a metallic unibody which will come in black or silver options.

Samsung has not yet specified when or where the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) will be sold, or how much it will cost. However, it has stated that it is offering 2 months' worth of free access to YouTube Premium, as well as 3 months of free Spotify Premium, with every unit of this new tablet sold (depending on the location in which it is sold).

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
