A while back, we got word that Samsung began launching a new budget Android device (albeit discreetly) in select markets, with the Galaxy Tab A9 series. Initially spotted on Samsung’s Guatemalan and UAE websites, the lineup consists of the Tab A9 and the larger Tab A9+.
With that in mind, the company has finally – and formally – announced the launch of its new budget tablet devices, which are now available in select markets worldwide. They’re also priced just around the 300-dollar price point, making them more affordable than most competitors out there.
In terms of specs, the base model Galaxy Tab A9 comes with a small 8.7-inch IPS screen, with a rather average 800 x 1340 pixel resolution. The tablet also features up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage inside, alongside MediaTek’s Helio G99 processor. The tablet will be available in Wifi and LTE variants, and will run on a modest 5,100 mAh battery.
Meanwhile, the larger Tab A9+ will comes with a larger 11-inch LCD screen with a 1200 x 1920 pixel resolution and 90hz refresh rate. Unlike its smaller sibling however, the A9+ is powered by a larger 7,040 mAh battery, with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There’s also a 5G version in addition to a standard Wifi model.
