Samsung’s latest Kids Edition tablet is now available in the US. The device was spotted on Samsung’s website by SamMobile and is called the Galaxy Tab A Kids Edition (2019). The hardware itself isn't new, but the kid-friendly packaging and software is.
This tablet has an 8-inch TFT display with 1280 x 800 px resolution. Its powered by an entry-level Snapdragon 429 chipset and comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It has a 2MP camera at the front and a 8MP one in the back. Samsung advertises 13-hour battery life with its 5,100 mAh power-cell.
Samsung’s Kids Edition tablets have always been known for their Kid-friendly content and dedicated space for using approved apps and setting time-limits. Parents can also use the tablet outside of the kids’ space.
The Galaxy Tab A Kids Edition (2019) is available from Samsung in the US for $150 and comes with a bumper case. The case itself comes in different colors but the tablet only comes in silver.
Finally a successor appeared for the Galaxy Tab E Lite Kids (which also had a themed edition based on THE LEGO Ninjago Movie). Interesting that Samsung uses Tab A 8.0 (2019) as the base, not Tab A 7.0 (2016).
