We have been having a pair of Samsung tablets on the radar for quite some time now - the Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab E. Now we learn that the former was quietly announced and is now listed on the company website.
The listing in question can be found across a multitude of Samsung regional websites, but the German one seems to have the most details.
In terms of specs, the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2016) is rather modest and features a 7-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. Underneath the hood is a quad-core processor, clocked at 1.3 GHz and 1.5GB of RAM. On-board storage is just 8GB, but thankfully there is a microSD card slot as well.
The camera setup consists of a 5MP main shooter and a 2MP selfie one. The Galaxy Tab A boots Android 5.1 Lollipop, possibly with an all new Kinds Mode by Samsung and is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery.
Available color options seem to include the basic black and white and we didn't manage to spot a network-enabled version to add on to the natural Wi-Fi connectivity, but maybe it will be made available as well. As for pricing, some early retailer listings suggest €169,00.
I don't see any problem with this tablet. For this price you cannot expect anything really better, do you ? I am looking for a cheap 7 or 8" tablet mostly to take notes or web browsing; do you have another model to recommend? Thanks.
This is not a flagship.. I don't know why you guys are getting so upset. Samsung is well known for creating shitty phones with larger displays with pitiable resolution and sell it for a higher price to idiots who only look at the size of the screen...
Because no one wants to look stupid taking photos with a tablet
