What you need to know

  • Samsung’s next budget Android tablet has leaked in new renders.
  • The Galaxy Tab A8 10.5 appears to borrow its predecessor’s design.
  • It could be available from January 2022 starting at €230 in Europe.

Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Tab A7 first popped up in September, thanks to a bunch of high-resolution renders from leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer. Those leaked images revealed a striking similarity between the most recent version and the upcoming model, and a set of new renders has now leaked to corroborate that.

Courtesy of WinFuture, a bunch of Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 renders appeared online. The tablet will reportedly sport a 10.5-inch FullHD+ LCD screen, larger than its predecessor’s 10.4-inch display. The screen could also have a 16:10 aspect ratio and 60Hz refresh rate.

Under the hood, it may be powered by a Unisoc Tiger T618 SoC, coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. The internal storage apparently comes in three configurations: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. These are presumably expandable via a microSD card slot.Sponsored LinksApartments in Dubai Might Be Cheaper Than You ThinkApartments for Sale in Dubai | Search AdsImage 1 of 5

A 7,040mAh battery will supposedly juice up the slate. It could also feature Dolby Atmos support, face unlock, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

According to rumors, the tablet will come in three colorways: gray, pink, and silver. The device is said to be available in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE options. It might also run Android 11 out of the box.

In Europe, the Galaxy Tab A8 may cost €230 and shipping is expected to start in the second half of January 2022.
