Samsung announces the Galaxy Tab A (8.0") 2019 with entry-level specs

Samsung unveiled today a new member of its Galaxy Tab A family of tablets, running One UI based on Android 9.0 Pie and packing some entry-level specs. The Galaxy Tab A (8.0") 2019 is Samsung's latest tablet device with a premium look, thanks to its metallic design.

As its name indicates, the tablet sports an 8-inch WXGA display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It's not to be confused, though, with the 8-inch tablet Samsung announced earlier this year with S Pen support. The latest release includes the following specs:

Display 8-inch WXGA TFT (1280x800)
Processor Quad-core 2.0GHz
Memory 2GB RAM, 32GB Storage + Micro SD Slot (up to 512GB)

Rear: 8MP

Front: 2MP

Battery 5,100mAh
Connectivity Wi-Fi a/b/g/n 2.4GHz/5GHz, Wi-Fi Direct, BT 4.2, USB type-B 2.0
Sensor Accelerometer, Light Sensor
Dimension 210 x 124.4 x 8 mm
Weight 345g(Wi-Fi), 347g(LTE)

Samsung didn't mention the specific chipset powering the device, but XDA Developers reports that it comes with an entry-level Snapdragon 429 SoC. The South Korean tech giant is offering a deal for consumers in order to sweeten up its new product: a 2-month free YouTube Premium and a 3-month free Spotify Premium subscription. It also features a ‘Kids Home’ mode for safe use by your children and 'Family Share’ for sharing photos and other stuff with family members.

There's no word yet on its pricing and availability details. It remains to be seen, though, how the new tablet will fare against the competition given its entry-level specs, which may be a bit uninteresting by today's standards.
