Samsung Galaxy tab A 8.0

The Design

The slate flaunts an 8-inch screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The screen has a disappointing resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. On the camera side, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 comes with a 5 megapixels rear camera and 2 megapixels front camera.

The Power

This tablet will be powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor running at 1.2GHz. The chip will be supported by a RAM of 2GB, which was previously reported as 1.5GB.
