India Gets a New Affordable Tablet: Galaxy Tab A (2017)


The Galaxy
Tab A (2017) was launched just last month and it has now made its way into
Indian markets in October. The affordable tablet costs exactly INR 17,999 in the
country, which is equivalent to roughly $275. Targeted only towards developing markets
like India and Vietnam, the Tab A (2017) will provide a decent alternative to
people who do not want to shell out INR 47,999 (roughly $736) for the high end
Galaxy Tab S3.


Unfortunately,
while the 8.0-inch tablet looks decent enough, the internals are nothing to
write home about. Nevertheless, if you are interested in taking a look at the
key specs, they are listed below.


8-inch WXGA
(1280×800) LCD display

Qualcomm Snapdragon
425 SoC

2GB RAM

16GB of
internal storage

8-megapixel
and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras

5,000 mAh
battery

USB Type-C
port, Android 7.1.1, dedicated Kids Mode, 4G LTE connectivity

Black and
Gold color options


As you can
see, the spec sheet looks something that would be dated even in 2014! Then
again, in countries like India, the brand name sells the product more than the
internal spec sheet and Samsung understands that well enough.
