Samsung is bringing another Android tablet in the lower middle class and is expanding its A series with it. Among other things, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 comes with a 10.5-inch Full HD display, a metal housing and an optional LTE module.
Solid equipment in the middle class
After unpacking, the Galaxy Tab A8 leaves a high-quality impression. The case is almost entirely made of metal, the tablet is 6.9 millimeters thick and weighs 508 grams. There are four speakers in total with a decent sound quality, and there is also a classic headphone jack. The front camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels and the main camera on the back has 8 megapixels. There is no fingerprint scanner, but face unlocking is possible.
The Galaxy Tab A8 has a 10.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. It’s laminated, has solid viewing angles, and color reproduction is okay, if not great. Unfortunately, Samsung’s S Pen is not supported.
Unisoc Tiger T618 at the Core
With the Unisoc Tiger T618, Samsung installed a relatively unknown chip with eight cores clocked at a maximum of 2 GHz. There is also a choice of 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB or 128 GB of internal memory. In the cheapest configuration, the tablet is available from 229 euros. It performs a little better than its predecessor in benchmarks, but the gaming performance is a fair bit better in direct comparison with it. However, you shouldn’t expect a particularly powerful gaming tablet here. Android 11 is preinstalled as the operating system along with Samsung’s One UI 3.1 user interface. Unfortunately, the Samsung Dex desktop mode is not supported.
