Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5" unveiled with a faster chipset, larger screen

Samsung has refreshed its affordable Galaxy Tab A tablet with slightly better performance, a bit larger screen, more storage and multitasking features to help you work or study from home.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 (2021) switches over to a 10.5” LCD with 1,920 x 1,200 px resolution. That’s a 16:10 aspect ratio, which means the display has slightly more vertical room compared to the 10.4” 15:9 display of the Tab A7. As before, there are four Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers for an immersive audio experience.

The new Tab A8 slate comes with entertainment built-in – Samsung TV Plus offers streaming of 200+ free channels (live and on-demand, available in select markets), also you get 2 months of YouTube Premium for free.

But it can be a work tablet too, with split-screen multitasking and floating windows. Also, it supports Drag & Split from One UI 3.1.1 that rolled out to 2020 Galaxy flagships earlier this year. This does mean that the tablet is launching with Android 11, though.

According to Samsung, the new chipset offers 10% higher CPU performance, the GPU is also 10% faster. But the company doesn’t name the chipset. Unofficial info suggests that it is a Unisoc Tiger T618, a 12 nm chipset with two Cortex-A75 cores and six A55 cores, plus a Mali G52 MP2 GPU. This replaces the Snapdragon 662 chip of the Tab A7 (11 nm, four Cortex-A73 and four A53 based cores, Adreno 610).

As with the previous model, the base model comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage. This year there’s a new memory configuration, 4/128 GB, sitting above the 4/64 GB option. The microSD slot means that you can save some money if you don’t need fast storage.

If you need to take part of a video call, there is a 5MP camera on the front (with a fixed focus lens), plus an 8MP camera on the rear (autofocus) for photos and videos.

There will be two versions of the Galaxy Tab A8 – one with Wi-Fi only and one with LTE if you need connectivity on the go. Both have Wi-Fi 5 (ac) and Bluetooth 5. Wired connectivity includes a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a USB-C 2.0 port (so no DeX support, that’s only for S-series devices).

The tablet is powered by a 7,040mAh battery. It supports 15W fast charging, but in the retail package you will only get a 7.5W charger.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 appears in renders

The Android tablet market is in something of a renaissance and Samsung is one maker that has consistently delivered a varied lineup of slates. A new midrange model dubbed Galaxy Tab A8 2021 is apparently in the works and we now have our first look at it thanks to renders courtesy of @OnLeaks and 91Mobiles.

Galaxy Tab A8 2021 will succeed last year’s Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 sticking to a 10.4-inch LCD with FHD+ resolution. The body appears to be made from aluminum and its dimensions come in at 246.7 x 161.8 x 6.9mm. There’s a single 8MP camera on the back.

The tablet will also feature quad speakers, a headphone jack, USB-C port and will be available in both Wi-Fi only and LTE versions. The rest of the spec sheet is yet to be confirmed at this point so we’ll have to wait for more clues to fill us in.

Basicamente a Samsung oferece neste momento a tab s6 lite na compra de um s21, confirma que estão apenas a limpar stock e devem descontinuar os updates para a tablet em breve.

Por outro lado, se olhar para a variante de 4gb, e assumir que o preço vai se aproximar dos 300€, será quase igual ao preço de lançamento do xiaomi pad 5 que tem um CPU bastante superior. Assim seria um mau negócio e espero que não seja o caso

Alguém sabe se suporta Netflix em HD?
Estive a experimentar na loja e a APP apenas indicava suportar em SD. Fiz o teste de video e não passava dos 960x540 :(
