Galaxy Tab A8 2021 official: more power at a small price

Officially unveiled Galaxy Tab A8 2021, mid-range Android tablet capable of providing excellent performance at a very low price

Samsung has finally launched Galaxy Tab A8 2021, budget tablet that goes to take the place of the previous Tab A7, keeping some distinctive features and improving many others. In fact, the aesthetics of the new model is in line with the top of the range of the category: the bezels of the display are very thin and the thickness of the frame is negligible.

There is also great anticipation for the Galaxy Tab S8 that, according to recent rumors, should have features capable of challenging the hegemony of Apple's iPad Pro. For its arrival, fans of the Korean company will probably have to wait a few months, perhaps consoling themselves with Samsung's new mid-range Android tablet that, in addition to having a very competitive price, is also an ideal tool for productivity and entertainment. Samsung's budget model has just been unveiled and we already know all the specifications, but you'll have to wait a few more days to be able to buy it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021: features

With a 10.5-inch TFT display that occupies 80% of the available surface, characterized by WUXGA resolution (i.e. 1,200×1.920 pixels, slightly higher than Full HD) and 16:10 aspect ratio, and Galaxy Tab A8 2021 is an aid tool for work and study, but it is also perfect for entertainment.

In fact, to ensure the playback of quality multimedia content, Samsung has integrated four Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, capable of reproducing a very enveloping sound. In addition, there is the possibility of connecting headphones, via the 3.5 mm jack input or via Bluetooth 5.0.

To power everything we find the processor Unisoc Tiger T618, chipset made at 12 nanometers and with a maximum frequency of 2 GHz. Accompanying it the graphics processing unit (GPU) Mali G52 MP2, RAM memory of 3 or 4 GB and internal memory (expandable) in three different sizes: 32, 64 and 128 GB, to meet every need. For the rest, you can count on the reliability of Android 11 and the graphical interface One UI 3.

As for the photographic sector, you can rely on a 5 MP front lens and an 8 MP rear lens with autofocus. 4G connectivity will also be available in some markets, but you can still take advantage of WiFi 5 for optimal wireless connectivity at home and in the office. In addition, Galaxy Tab A8 2021 integrates a side fingerprint sensor, takes advantage of Samsung Knox technology for facial recognition and also has GPS.

Despite the large screen and good battery (7040 mAh), Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 has a weight of just 508 grams and rather small dimensions: 246.8 x 161.9 x 6.9 mm. Charging is completed thanks to the USB Type-C 2.0 port that supports the power of 15 W.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021: price

Although the predecessor, Tab A7, made its debut in October 2020, the new version has been waiting a little longer and did not hit the target of arriving in October 2021. But there is the chip crisis, we know, and you can not blame Samsung.

Already from the end of this month, however, Galaxy Tab A8 2021 will be available in Europe (Italy included) from 249 euros in Grey Silver and Pink Gold colors.
