We told you guys about Samsung’s newest line of affordable tablets — the Samsung Galaxy Tab A — back when they went up for pre-order last week. Available in either 8 or 9.7 inch varieties, these tablets wont blow you away with their spec sheet, but then again they wont break the bank either.
Officially available today in the US, both models come with 1024×768 resolution displays in a user friendly 4:3 aspect ratio. The 8-inch version (16GB) retails for $230 and only features a single speaker, while the 9.7-inch (16GB) is available for $300 and comes with 2 speakers.
The rest of the specs include a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, micro SD card slot (up to 128GB), 5MP rear/2MP front facing cameras, and a 4,200mAh battery — all of this running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
