Samsung is gearing up for the launch of Galaxy Tab S5 tablet, the successor to the last year’s Galaxy Tab S4. Now, the latest leaks also revealed the company to soon launch a new entry-level tablet under the Galaxy Tab A series. In 2019, Samsung already launched the 8-inch Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen support and Galaxy Tab S5e Android tablets. Talking about the upcoming Galaxy Tab A tablet, it also comes with an 8-inch display and looks identical to other cheap Android tablets with the thick bezels all around the display.
The Bluetooth SIG revealed the tablet to come in five different models — SM-T295, SM-T295C, SM-T295N, SM-T297, and SM-T290. While the SM-T290 is the Wi-Fi only variant of the Galaxy Tab A (2019), the other four models support 4G LTE. According to the source, the SM-T295 is also certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance which revealed it to support Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n (2.4GHz & 5GHz). The tablet even got listed on Google’s Android Enterprise page.
Talking about the specifications, the Galaxy Tab (2019) will be coming with an 8-inch display. It also packs 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The new entry-level tablet runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with One UI skin on top. While it supports LTE, there is no fingerprint scanner or NFC support. It is also mentioned to be listed on the Google Play Console which revealed even more specifications. The 8-inch display on this tablet only offers HD (1280 x 800 pixels) resolution.
Under the hood, it comes equipped with the 12nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 Mobile Platform featuring 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 2.0GHz. Unlike the earlier Galaxy Tab A tablet, the upcoming 8-inch doesn’t support S Pen. As of now, there is still no word about the 8-inch Galaxy Tab (2019) from the company. We need to wait for a few more weeks to get any sort of official confirmation about this new entry-level tablet. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
