    Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) leak reveals a new design with flat edges

    Aside from the rumored Galaxy Tab S8 flagship tablet series, Samsung's also seemingly working on a new Galaxy Tab A8 model for 2021. Pricing details are unknown, but you can bet it will be more affordable than any of the Galaxy Tab S8 variants. Design-wise, the Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) appears to be following a new language — at least according to a few new fan-made renders.

    The renders originate from @OnLeaks (via 91Mobiles) and should be based on information that has leaked thus far. In other words, these are not leaked press renders, but they should closely reflect the official design.

    The Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) seems to have a flat metallic frame instead of curved edges like the Tab A7 (2020).  The tablet is equipped with a selfie camera with a landscape orientation, USB-C and 3.5mm ports, and quad speakers with Dolby Atmos.

    A 10.4-inch display with FHD+ or higher resolution

    Similar to last year's model, the Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) will reportedly have a 10.4-inch display with an FHD+ or higher resolution. The exact type of panel is unmentioned, but it could be TFT LCD.

    On the back of the device there's an 8MP camera, and this time, it seems to have a circular rather than a square-shaped housing. Overall, the Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) is said to measure 246.7 x 161.8 x 6.9mm (without the camera bump). Samsung will reportedly release it with Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, though exact availability details unknown.
