Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2017) goes official with 8-inch display, 5,000 mAh battery
As expected, Samsung quietly introduced its budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A (2017) tablet. Despite rumors suggesting the slate will be launched on the market as Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S, the South Korean company chose another name, at least in some regions.
Specs-wise, there are no surprises if you've read out previous reports about the tablet. The Galaxy Tab A (2017) is an entry-level slate that sports an 8-inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution.
On the inside, the tablet packs a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage. The Galaxy Tab A (2017) has a decent 8-megapixel camera on the back and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera.
Samsung included a generous 5,000 mAh battery inside and Android 7.1 Nougat is running on board. For those interested in a cheap tablet, the Galaxy Tab A (2017) costs just $285, but it's only available in Vietnam for the time being.
