The Galaxy Tab A8 Wi-Fi only variant starts at €229 (around Rs. 19,700), while the LTE variant of the tablet carries a starting price of €279 (around Rs. 24,000).


Looking at the price, the Indian variant is believed to come at around Rs. 20,000. However, we cannot comment surely until any reliable info comes out. The Amazon listing has confirmed that the tablet will be available for purchase in the country in Pink Gold, Gray, and Silver color options.

Considering its expected price, we can say the Galaxy Tab A8 will be a tough competitor for other brands' tablets in the same price range. The Galaxy Tab A8 comes with some unique features such as you can split the screen of the tablet in half to do two things at once.

Also, the large screen will give a great viewing experience along with a massive battery and fast charging tech. Besides, the South Korean brand is expected to launch the flagship Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets soon. The exact launch date is yet to be announced.
