Samsung Announces Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) With Entry-Level Specs

The entry-level Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) has just made its official debut. The tablet has a compact size, an unassuming design, mediocre specs, and hopefully, it is going to be cheap as well.

This is not the first Tab A that Samsung has launched recently, as an S-pen equipped version of the tablet was announced back in March. There is a 10-inch version available too.


The Galaxy Tab A 2019 is powered by the Snapdragon 429 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of internal storage space available which is further expandable via a microSD card slot. It runs Android Pie (9.0) out of the box.

The tablet has a metal design that is 8mm thick, weighs 345g, and the 8-inch display has fairly thick bezels around it. The display features FullHD screen resolution and an aspect ratio of 16:10, which should be ideal for your gaming needs. At the back, it has an 8mp primary camera and the selfie camera is 2 megapixels, not like tablets are built for photography.

It comes in black and silver colors and is meant to last long with a beefy 5100mAh battery. Samsung has also added two months of free YouTube Premium and three months of free Spotify Premium for whoever buys the tablet. There’s also an LTE variant coming at some point.

Pricing and availability for the tab are yet to be confirmed.
