Samsung is working on a low-cost 10.5″ tablet that could be released next month. We’ve already seen it in a design leak, but now @OnLeaks has revealed complete specifications which seems interesting. So without any further delay let’s have a closer look at this budget tab from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) Leaked Specifications:
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) will have a 10.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (16:10 aspect ratio). Of course, the refresh rate will be 60 Hz. Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos will be included, ensuring that this low-cost tablet has some entertainment value. The tablet will be 246.7 161.8 x 6.9 mm in size (8.7 mm thick, if you include the camera bump). It will come in three colours: gold, silver, and grey.
With its Unisoc Tiger T618 chipset, it won’t be a gaming powerhouse. Two Cortex-A75 cores (at 2.0 GHz) and six efficient A55 cores (at 1.8 GHz) are included in this 12 nm chipset, as well as a Mali-G52 MP2 GPU and an LTE modem.
LTE connectivity will be available on only some models of the tablet; the rest will be Wi-Fi only. RAM and storage choices will begin at 3/32 GB and progress to more affordable 4/64 GB and 4/128 GB variants.
A 7,040 mAh battery will power the Tab A8 10.5 (2021), which should offer rapid charging (how fast is unclear). The Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020) has a 7,040 mAh battery that charges at 15W.
The tablet will reportedly contain a 3.5 mm audio connector in addition to the quad speakers. There should also be a 5 MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls, as well as an 8 MP rear-facing camera. Face unlock and a side-mounted fingerprint reader will be available on the tablet.
On October 21, around a month from today, the Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) is likely to be unveiled. The cost will be around INR 19,000 (around $260/€220). The Wi-Fi-only Tab A7 10.4 (2020) was originally priced at INR 21,000, but is now available for INR 18,000.
