Samsung quietly introduced a budget tablet with support for S Pen

Those who follow news about the mobile industry as a whole, not only for its Android segment, there may be a feeling of deja vu, as just a week ago Apple without any announcements and presentations put on its official website a new generation of iPad Air and iPad mini. As it became known, today in the same way did Samsung, presenting on its Thai website a new budget tablet Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019).

Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019), without going into details, it would be possible with a light hand to call a competitor to the iPad mini, but we still vdadimsya in the details and at once put aside these pointless comparisons. First, the new budget Samsung is much cheaper than the iPad mini and therefore falls into an entirely different price category. And secondly, because of the very different experience while using iOS and Android, the first and second OSes its fans, for which the transition to competitive OSes would be akin to the training of pensioners computer literacy.

Who could really compete with the Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) is a line of smartphones Galaxy Note, as both devices have support for proprietary stylus S Pen, which is one of their main advantages, and they are close in size, in consequence of which the new tablet can be called a budget alternative to the Galaxy Note.

Samsung officially introduced the tablet, perhaps because it is not so important for its mobile division, and therefore its cost and start date sales still unknown. However, it is known that it will be available in two colors (grey and black), also known some countries where you will sell novelty: Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the UK.

Powerful and possibly cheap

Despite the fact that the tablet will be released as representative of the available line of Galaxy Tab A Samsung it’s good enough in terms of hardware, at least on paper. Volmyansky 7904 processor Exynos with a frequency of 1.8 GHz combined with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 512 GB using a microSD card.

Note also that the South Korean mini-tablet from the inside is the same that released not so long ago in India Samsung M20 and while the Samsung Exynos chipset and supports 32 7904-megapixel camera module in the Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) this is not set.

Anyway, as for cameras, here all is absolutely simple – the main camera is 8 MP, selfie camera is 5 MP, there are no additional modules with a wide viewing angle, or sensor for measuring the depth of a scene and create a trendy bokeh effect. I have always believed that taking pictures on a tablet the lesson of the strange, and although the Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) is a mini, but a tablet, in my opinion, some fancy camera he does not need it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019)

On the other hand, the novelty from Samsung can offer support for mobile 4G LTE networks, as well as a decent capacity battery 4200 mAh, which, according to information on the website, works up to 11 hours Internet surfing over Wi-Fi or mobile network. Display is good but nothing outstanding – 8 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

I also want to draw attention to the fact that Samsung has finally abandoned the Android Oreo and a brand new Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) will be out of the box with Android version 9.0 Pie. Soon Google is already planning to release the Android Q and when he gets to the Samsung devices, it is not clear, but Pie is better than Oreo.

Clearly not a competitor to the Apple iPad mini (2019)

The tablet weighs just 325g which makes it slightly heavier than the iPad mini (2019). Of course, the Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) can not be compared with iPad mini (2019) performance, but the fact that the Samsung tablet loses in speed, it wins in price.

Despite the fact that the cost budget mini tablet Samsung not yet known, it certainly will be much lower than the $ 400 that asking for the new iPad mini (2019) in its most basic configuration.

As you a new Samsung tablet? Would buy to itself such?
