Samsung launches Galaxy Tab A featuring Bixby Home

Himanshu, 18 November 2017

Samsung has launched a new tablet dubbed Galaxy Tab A. The device is powered by a 1.4GHz processor, and sports an 8-inch display of 1280×800 pixel resolution. It comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

The device features an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front shooter. It's 8.9mm thick, and packs in a 5,000mAh battery.

On the software side, the new Galaxy Tab A features Bixby Home - which is the virtual assistant's card-based contextual interface - as well as Bixby Reminder. Other prominent software-related features include Home Mode (that displays useful info - calendar, weather, and time - while the tablet is being charged).

The new Galaxy Tab A is currently available in Samsung's home country of South Korea. It comes in both WiFi and LTE options, with the former costing KRW 264,000 (around $240) and the latter setting you back KRW 308,000 (around $280).
