Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) will debut in Taiwan next week for $240
The Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) was unveiled at the beginning of September around the time the Galaxy Z Fold 2 got formally introduced, but as usual, Samsung’s first official announcement exposed a lot of technical details without revealing the tablet’s price and release date. Regardless, we’re getting closer to the tablet’s debut with each passing day, and in Taiwan at least, the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) is a little over a week away from hitting the shelves.
Today Samsung announced the first availability details pertaining to the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020). The tablet will go on sale in Taiwan on October 1 for the starting price of TWD 6,990 ($240). The entry-level variant is limited to Wi-Fi connectivity and has 32GB of storage. There’s also going to be a 64GB Wi-Fi-only version selling for TWD 8,490 ($292) as well as an LTE model with 32GB of storage priced at TWD 9,900 ($341). The 64GB Wi-Fi and the LTE variants will go on sale later than the entry-level model and will be officially listed on major retail channels starting October 15.
Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) color choices and other specs
Following the tablet’s debut in Taiwan next week, customers will be able to pick one of three color options when buying the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020). They include gray, gold, and silver, but they won’t all be available for every Galaxy Tab A7 variant. The silver color will be reserved exclusively for the Wi-Fi-only model.
As for specifications, the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) is obviously a value-oriented tablet so don’t expect it to compete with the Galaxy Tab S7 series given its $240 entry-level price. The slate is equipped with a 10.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 2000 by 1200, the Snapdragon 662 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM, expandable storage by up to 1TB, and a 7,040mAh battery with 15W fast charging capabilities.
The tablet also features four speakers with Dolby Atmos support, a USB-C connector and a 3.5mm audio jack, an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP selfie camera, all wrapped in a body measuring 247.6 × 157.4 × 7.0mm and weighing 476 grams. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we learn more about Samsung’s release plans for the tablet in India and other markets but we suspect that October 1 will be the tablet’s launch day in many other regions outside Taiwan.
