Samsung releases the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019)
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).
