The Galaxy Tab A has just like its predecessor a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels (full-HD +). The display runs from edge-to-edge, so you do not have a physical home button. The cheap tablet has a metal housing with Dolby Atmos speakers on both sides. The Tab A 10.1 is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 7904 processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. You can place a micro SD card for more capacity.

Release date and price

The Tab A 10.1 has a 6150 mAh battery, which is much smaller than the 7040 mAh battery of the Tab S5e. However, since the processor needs slightly less energy, the battery life would be about the same. You charge the tablet via USB-c. On the back, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has an 8-megapixel camera. Selfies are made with a resolution of 5 megapixels. Finally, the entry tablet will run on Android 9.0 (Pie) with Samsung’s own OneUI skin.

For the time being, Samsung will only add the Tab A 10.1 in Germany at a suggested retail price of 210 euros. From 5 April he will be there in the stores. The lite version is sold for 270 euros. It is not yet known whether Samsung intends to release the Tab A 10.1 in the Netherlands, just like its predecessor.
