Samsung secretly announces the Galaxy Tab A in Russia


Last updated: March 17th, 2015 at 11:55 UTC+01:00

We told you the Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus tablet lineups were in the works, and Samsung has now announced the former at a press event in Russia. The Galaxy Tab A will be offered in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants, and as we had confirmed in our exclusive leak, the tablets will have displays with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The Galaxy Tab A lineup will be priced at around Euro 300 and will be launched in blue and gold color variants sometime later this year.

The hardware on the Galaxy Tab A includes displays with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels, a Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.2GHz (most likely a Snapdragon 410), 4G connectivity, and 5-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear and front cameras. There’s also 16GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB), and a 4,200 mAh battery on the 8-inch model that should last for 10 hours. The 9.7-inch variant has two loudspeakers, though these will apparently not offer stereo sound. Everything is packed under bodies that are only 7.5 mm thick.

As can be seen in the pictures, the Galaxy Tab A tablets also seem to run on the latest version of TouchWiz (based on Android Lollipop), which Samsung says is less bloated and more optimized than previous versions. The 8-inch and 9.7-inch Tab A’s will go on sale in Russia next month; the 8-inch will be priced at around 16,990 – 18,990 rubles and 20,990 – 22,990 rubles for the Wi-Fi and LTE variants, while the 9.7-inch variants will cost around 20,990 – 22,990 rubles and 24,990 – 26,990 rubles for the Wi-Fi and LTE models.
