Samsung is probably among the foremost prolific tablet makers, albeit Apple has the lion’s share there. It’s many tablets still within the queue, including what could be the essential Android tablet alive. While its strategy and naming for the high-end Galaxy Tab S series are straightforward and predictable, the remainder of its tablets is pretty a mess. For instance, this upcoming Galaxy Tab A8 2021 isn’t an 8-inch tablet but a ten .1-inch slate succeeding the Galaxy Tab A7.
There was a time when Samsung’s tablet naming schemes would require a minimum hint at their screen sizes. But, there have also been times when the name didn’t indicate that each one or, conversely, held a mouthful to be very, very specific (remember the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 2019 with S Pen?). Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab A7 with a ten .4-inch screen, and this year saw the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite with an 8.7-inch display.
In that vein, the Galaxy Tab A8 that’s being leaked by 91mobiles may be a successor of the Galaxy Tab A7, so it’s getting a ten .5-inch WUXGA (1920×1200) screen. However, despite the dimensions, this tablet won’t even get up to several of its Android peers within the market. But, it’s also clear that Samsung is aiming for a particular, budget-friendly market.
Running the show will be a Unisoc T618 rather than the Galaxy Tab A7’s Snapdragon 662. there’ll be options for 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32, 64, or 128GB of internal storage. The battery has an equivalent 7,040 mAh capacity, and therefore the 8MP primary camera and 5MP front camera haven’t changed either.
The design of the Galaxy Tab A8 2021 is just about your typical entry-level affair, with big bezels on all sides. A minimum of it still has a headphone jack and can boast quad-speakers with Dolby Atmos branding. Considering the Galaxy Tab A7 was launched in September last year, the Galaxy Tab A8 2021’s debut might be round the corner.
