Samsung has launched a new budget tablet today. We had been hearing about this device for quite some time now. It was initially believed to be called the Galaxy Tab A2 XL. Samsung has made it official today as the Galaxy Tab A 10.5.
This affordable tablet has been developed keeping entertainment in mind. It has mid-range specifications, a large 10.5-inch 16:10 aspect ratio display and four speakers to provide an enhanced audio and visual experience. The Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is going to be released later this month. Samsung has also confirmed how much the tablet is going to cost.
Galaxy Tab A 10.5 price and release date
The Galaxy Tab A 10.5 price is €329 for the Wi-Fi and €389 for the LTE model respectively. It won't be a straight conversion to local currencies in other markets but it does give us a price range where these models will fall globally. It will be about $380 for the Wi-Fi and $450 for the LTE models.
For those who are wondering about the official accessories, Samsung hasn't launched a keyboard cover for the Galaxy Tab A 10.5. It does offer one for its new flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4, in addition to the Book Cover. The accessories for the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 include a charging dock which shows information like weather and time as well as different pictures while charging the device. The Book Cover will also be available for this device which will prop up the tablet so that users can watch videos easily.
As for when the tablet is going to be released, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is going to be available for purchase later this month on August 24. That's also when it's going to release the Galaxy Tab S4. The Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is going to be available in gray and white colors.
If that date sounds familiar it's because you have been hearing it a lot recently. Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 9, is also expected to be released on August 24. Samsung hasn't confirmed anything about the new smartphone at this point in time. It will confirm all of the details at its next Unpacked event which is scheduled for August 9.
