Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) Listed on Android Enterprise and Bluetooth SIG; Key Specs, Design Revealed


Samsung quietly announced the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen 8.0 (2019) in March this year. As its name clearly indicates, the tablet features an 8-inch display and comes with an S Pen. Samsung is now gearing up to launch an 8.0-inch version of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) launched in February this year. The tablet has been added to Google’s Android Enterprise catalog with the model number SM-T295. It has also been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, which suggests it is going to be formally unveiled very soon.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) Android Enterprise Listing Confirms Key Specs

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) listing on the Android Enterprise website confirms the tablet will feature an 8.0-inch sized display. In terms of memory, the tablet will be available in a single configuration with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019), on the other hand, offers 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

Apart from the display size and memory configuration, the Android Enterprise catalog listing also reveals the tablet will be shipped with the Android 9.0 Pie based Samsung One UI. In terms of design, the render included in the listing seems to suggest the 8.0-inch version will have thicker bezels compared to the 10.1-inch version. This is certainly not shocking as the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) will be a more affordable device than the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019). Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) has bagged Bluetooth certification as well, which tells us the tablet will support the older Bluetooth 4.2 standard.

SM-T295 Bluetooth Certification

The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019) had been spotted on the FCC website earlier this month, revealing a 4980mAh capacity battery. Under the hood, it is expected to be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon chipset from Qualcomm. In comparison, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1-inch version is powered by an Exynos 7904 octa-core processor with a Mali-G71 MP2 GPU. Since Samsung is yet to launch the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) in India, Samsung fans in the country might have to wait quite long to get their hands on the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2019).
