Tablets have become more like a technology of the past, with the rise of big screened smartphones. Now it has become rare to see someone with a tablet and rarer to see companies making those tablets. One of the companies that is still making tablets is Samsung, which has not forgotten the technology. In the past week we got to see what the upcoming flagship tablet from Samsung will look like, the Galaxy Tab S5e. But, now the company has launched their new affordable tablet, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019), which is currently launched only in Germany with its Global launch coming soon.
The newest tablet from the South Korean tech giant comes in two variants based on its connectivity. There is a Wi-Fi variant of Galaxy Tab A 10.1 priced at 210 euros (approx. Rs 17,000) and the Wi-Fi + LTE variant, which is the higher variant of the tablet priced at 270 euros (approx. Rs 22,000). That is the major difference between the tablets, as both are available with the same configuration. They both come in three colour options – Black, Gold and Silver. We can see it launching in the Indian market in the coming months.
Talking about the specifications of Galaxy Tab A 10.1, it will have a 10.1-inch Full HD+ display with 1920 x 1200 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Unlike the flagship tablet of Samsung, the Tab A 10.1 will have thick bezels on all sides. It is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7904 SoC and has 3GB RAM along with 32GB storage. Its storage can be expanded to 400GB via a microSD card. Its rear camera has an 8MP sensor and on the front it has a 5MP one. It doesn’t have a finger-print scanner, but it does come with face unlock for biometric authentication. Over that, this tablet comes with Wi-Fi, Cat 6 LTE and Bluetooth 5.0 with a battery of 6,150mAh.
Unlike the Galaxy Tab S5e, which will have AKG speakers, the Tab A 10.1 comes with dual Dolby Atmos speakers. Priced under the 20K range, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 could be a good media device, but some good phones too come in the same price range. So, it will all come down to taste and the need of the user.
