New Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) spotted ahead of official unveil

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S3 about four months ago, but that won't remain the only tablet the South Korean company launches this year. A mid-range slate that goes by model number SM-T385 has been recently spotted online.

Considering the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is known as Samsung SM-T350, the new tablet might be a sequel to the mid-range slate. The listing at GFXBench reveals some of its specs, such as the 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

Just like the current model, the alleged Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) sports an 8-inch display with HD (1280 x 800 pixels) resolution. Also, the slate is supposed to feature an 8-megapixel primary camera and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie shooter on the front side.

There's no word on the battery side, but we do know the new Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. The tablet is likely to be officially unveiled in early September at IFA 2017, but Samsung may use another market name.

Android has given up on tabs, it seems... might be the last tab we ever see?!

Finally 2GB of ram and a snapdragon processor. Wonder what the price will be, hopefully under 200 Aus. If Lenovo don't launch the Tab 4 8, I might have to get this.

The new $300 iPad is killing all of these in terns of value.

I hope this one goes for $179.99 or less. The Tab A 10.1 is only $230 and I think it's a great value for a tablet that size, full HD display. Can't deny that the $330 iPad is a good value though.
