Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) will be released in the US next month, free content on board


Samsung Mobile USA today announced the upcoming release of a new Android tablet simply called Galaxy Tab A 8.0. The slate succeeds the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2015), and it's known in other markets as the Galaxy Tab A (2017). As its name suggests, the new Samsung tablet sports an 8-inch screen. It's not a high-resolution display, offering just 800 x 1280 pixels, but that's because we're talking about an affordable product here.

 

Samsung presents the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) as a tablet for the whole family. The device comes with Parental Controls, Kids Mode, "$100 of premium games, books, movies and TV shows" for kids, and other free Value Packs. Moreover, customers are getting three months of YouTube Red at no cost - for access to ad-free content, plus exclusive movies and series.

 

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) features 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 5,000 mAh battery (for up to 14 hours of video playback time). On the back, the tablet has an 8 MP camera with LED flash, while its front-facing camera is a 5 MP one.

 

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 has two color variants (black and silver), and will be available in the US starting November 1. Samsung plans to sell it online, via its official website, for $229.99. The slate will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, and, for now, we don't know when (or if) it's going to be updated to Android 8 Oreo.
