Samsung has just taken the wraps off the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 for the American markets. The tablet comes in an LTE variant as well, while carriers like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular are expected to sell the tablet on their retail and online stores. Verizon customers can get it shipped to their homes right away while other carriers will wait for a couple of weeks to release the tablet.
For those unaware, the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 was revealed extensively in a leak not too long ago, and unfortunately, there are no surprises here. The tablet carries a sleek design with a metal frame, so this is a big upgrade from older-gen Galaxy Tabs.
Hardware specs of the Galaxy Tab A 8.4:
- 8.4-inch 1920 x 1200 display
- 32GB internal storage (expandable)
- 3GB RAM
- Octa-core Exynos 7904 CPU
- 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera
- Android 9 Pie
- 5,000 mAh battery
Samsung remains the only top tech giant after Apple to offer viable replacement to expensive tablets. While the likes of Microsoft have also tried their luck with affordable Surface tablets and hybrids, they lack the charm of an iPadOS or Android tablet.
Samsung only offers the tablet in a single Mocha color variant, so there aren’t a lot of options to choose from. Lastly, the tablet will set you back by $279.99, which is pretty decent considering the hardware it’s packing underneath. If you’re in the market for a budget ranged tablet with a decent hardware and software combination, the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 certainly ticks all the boxes.
