Samsung didn’t want Apple to get all the hype with its new tablets, so it just pulled out a slate from thin air. It’s a Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019) model, that was just unveiled with a budget price and S Pen support.
We’re dealing with an 8 inch tablet here, that has the alternative name of “Samsung Galaxy Tab 8 A with S Pen 8.0”. It’s also known under the codename SM-P205 and comes with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, on an IPS LCD panel. It works with the previous gen Note pen and there’s no need to charge it, the S Pen we mean.
Other specs include a midrange Exynos 7904 processor, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 MP front shooter, plus 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot in the mix, an USB Type-C connector and a 4200 mAh battery, as well as 4G LTE support. The product weighs 325 grams and we have no idea what Android version it’s running, but it’s probably Oreo or Pie.
The camera on board also does AR Emoji and stickers, plus Live Bokeh even and some Beauty modes. There’s no beefed up security, via a fingerprint scanner, or face recognition. The device is available in black and grey and the price is a mystery for now.
