Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) spotted at TENAA

We’ve known that Samsung is working on a successor to the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 for a while, and now the 8-inch slate (SM-T385C) has been spotted on Chinese certification authority TENAA’s online database, leading us to believe that it will be released in the near future.

The tablet, which has been dubbed the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017), is expected to ship with a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 427 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter—so it’s not going to win any awards for performance.

A recent benchmarking test revealed that the slate will ship running Android 7.0 Nougat skinned with Samsung’s stunning Experience user interface, bringing it in line with the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and a handful of the firm’s other latest devices on the software front.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any information with regards to pricing. If we were to hazard a guess, however, we’d say that it will be priced in the region of $130 to $150 when it (presumably) hits the shelves in the United States later this year. Nothing’s confirmed, though.

Why? so far the Tab As and Es have been pointless, don’t know why Samsung doesn’t invest in a more daring “innovative” tablet.

Are you even aware of the Tab S line ?

Exactly, they have the Tab S, which are competent tablets. they need to create a “note” equivalent for tablets. honestly I would like a proper multi-media device. I have said before, a curved Super AMOLED 16:9 tablet would be awesome. curved like a curved TV not an edge display. with an AOD that’ll allow it to display information when not in use, as with the curve, it’ll be able to stand on its own. so many Samsung traits could be used in tablets. but they don’t.

A glass back is stupid enough. If they start curving their tablet displays as well, I’ll buy an iPad so fast I will leave a trail of fire and smoke behind me.

Good for you, settle for mediocrity! but in case you haven’t noticed, your hands are not flat or come with their own adhesive. a curved tablet would be so much easier to hold with one hand. I never said anything about glass anyway so why you are making comments about that I don’t understand. They don’t make glass back TVs either, so..?! And being able to stand like a picture frame when not in use..? why is that a bad thing? you’ve made such a stupid pointless comment with no argument except that you’re an apple fanboy on the wrong… Read more »

You are rude. And your personal attacks are out of place (and silly as well.. I own a Samsung phone and many Samsung tablets. I’ve got zero Apple devices).

I may be rude, but I find pointless comments very irritating, and saying you’d run for an iPad quicker than anything when complaining about the price of a Tab S3 – how else does that look!
My initial comment was nothing but a wishlist for a tablet.

I did not complain about the price of the Tab S3. I complained about the value.

The iPad Pro is very expensive, yes, but in exchange it offers a 120hz display, excellent battery life, actually good speakers, and a CPU/GPU that the Tab S3 can’t even dream of.

I agree with most of what you say except with the curved display similar to TVS. The experience wouldn’t be the same because of the size however at the same time I think it’s worth trying. If it’s to keep it standing straight up just use the common stand cases something you can’t obviously use with TVS.

They need to start pushing the boundaries again. Their tablet screens are pretty much the same they were when they released the original Tab S back in 2014 (they even reduced the ppi) and the Snapdragon 820 is a joke when compared to what Apple’s using on their iPad Pro. £600 is just too much money for what the Tab S3 offers.
