Android tablets have been surviving thanks to a few companies that have taken the matter into their hands, with Samsung being one of them. And it looks like Samsung’s upcoming budget offering, Tab A8, might be a solid alternative to the cheaper iPad.
The overall design of the Samsung Tab A8 seems to be very similar to Samsung’s more expensive Galaxy Tab S line of tablets. It offers a metal chassis that houses a large 10.5-inch display surrounded by a thin, uniform bezel. At the same time, the screen is of better quality than before, featuring Full HD resolution (1920 x 1,200) and a 16:10 aspect ratio.
On the technical side of things, the Tab A8 is speculated to feature a Unisoc Tiger T618 SoC, which could be paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM along with 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB of storage, while the tablet also comes with support for MicroSD storage up to 1TB.
The Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) has two sensors, including an 8-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front camera.
And this doesn’t stop here as with a 7,000 mAh battery; the Tab A8 also has a quad-speaker system with support for Dolby Atmos, a headphone jack, face unlock, Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Bluetooth 5.0 and optional LTE.

The successor to the Galaxy Tab A7 is expected to be made available in the US starting from January 2022. And it will come in three colours: grey, silver, and pink gold. Although we still don’t have any exact information regarding the device’s price, we speculate that the Tab A8 would be priced around USD 250, slightly higher than its predecessor Tab A7 which came in at USD 230.
Overall, the Samsung Tab A8 could potentially offer consumers a less expensive iPad alternative that could be used for both entertainment and work. What are your thoughts on Samsung Tab A8?
