Samsung is expected to launch an Android-based budget tablet in the coming weeks. Dubbed as the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017), it has already been spotted on TENAA and FCC.
However, Samsung is yet to make an official announcement about the tablet. Now, tipster Roland Quandt has taken to Twitter to reveal an important piece of information about the device. According to him, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) will be launched as Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S. Up until now, almost all the publications were referring the tablet with the former name.
Well, we are assuming that Samsung has decided to change the name because Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) sounds too complex. So from now on, we will refer the tablet as Galaxy Tab A2 S. Anyway talking about its specifications, the upcoming Samsung tablet will be powered by a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset clocked at 1.4GHz.
Storage-wise, it will be coming with 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of native storage space. Similar to the current model, the upcoming tablet is said to feature an 8-inch HD display with the resolution of 1280×800 pixels.
Other than that, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S is said to flaunt an 8MP primary shooter on the rear as well as a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.
On the software front, the tablet is expected to arrive with pre-installed Android 7.0 Nougat. The battery size backing the device up is not mentioned anywhere. Also, the pricing factor of the tablet is not clear as of yet.
Hopefully, we will know more about this matter in the following days. It is being speculated that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S will be unveiled during the IFA 2017, which will start from September 1.
