More screen, more power and more power – Samsung Newsroom Germany
The latest Galaxy Tab A series optimizes your everyday life – from entertainment to hybrid learning
today announced the release of its new Galaxy Tab A8, the most streamlined, powerful device in the Tab A-series to date. The Galaxy Tab A8 offers stunning screen, power, and performance in a sleek and lightweight design that’s ready for learning, entertaining, connecting, and more. It’s an immersive wearable experience that suits users’ everyday lifestyle and budget, and syncs seamlessly with other Galaxy devices.
“In a world where remote working and learning has become the norm, tablets have become an essential device for so many,” said Matthew Leem, vice president of Global Brand Marketing Group, MX (Mobile eXperience) Business Samsung Electronics. âThey are the perfect tool to get more out of our online activities at home and on the go. We know that people are increasingly using tablets for video calling, online classrooms, gaming and streaming, so we’ve added brilliant new features to the Galaxy Tab A8 to help you connect on a new level. â
Everything you want to see and do is improved
The Galaxy Tab A8 experience starts with Samsung’s signature tablet design and feel, which is loved by Tab S series users. Its lightweight shape offers an expanded 10.5-inchCH Screen with a remarkably slim bezel and a typical 16:10 aspect ratio. The result is a screen-to-body ratio of 80 percent, which enables a much more immersive viewing experience than previous tablet models. Whether users are streaming a favorite show, playing games with friends, or meeting family on video calls, the Galaxy Tab A8’s quad speaker with Dolby AtmosÂ® delivers a rich soundscape with unparalleled detail, depth and realism.
And with Samsung TV Plus and more than 200 free channels, Galaxy Tab A8 owners can enjoy live and on-demand entertainment to their hearts’ content. And for new users, the Galaxy Tab A8 offers two months of ad-free YouTube Premium so you can watch your favorite videos continuously, in the background and offline.
In addition to its incredible display, the Galaxy Tab A8 offers even more power and performance in the Samsung Tab A series. The Galaxy Tab A8’s CPU and GPU have each been increased by 10% to deliver faster, smoother performance without frustrating delays. Plus, the Galaxy Tab A8 offers multiple storage options so users can choose the one that’s right for them. Choose between 32 GB, 64 GB or – new with the Galaxy Tab A8 – 128 GB of storage. Use the expandable microSD card function to get up to 1 TB of storage space. The Galaxy Tab A8 is now also available with 3GB or 4GB RAM. A 7,040 mAh Battery with up to 15W Fast charging means users can stream for hours without worrying about losing power.

For easier, powerful multitasking, you can split your screen and use two apps side by side, and even add a pop-up windowwith multi-active window. When you’re in a class, you can chat with classmates, take notes, and watch a presentation at the same time. And when you’re browsing the web, just drag a link aside from your current window to create a split screen. The drag & split function automatically opens a second browser window for more dynamic website browsing.
With the 8-megapixel rear camera, the 5-megapixel front camera and the brand new screen recorder function of the Galaxy Tab A8, students, teachers and even gamers don’t have to miss a thing. You can record clear, detailed videos of tutorials or lectures, or even record yourself demonstrating with your voice and screen. This feature allows you to record your own notes while highlighting key points or writing on the screen to match what you have said with what you see so you can focus and understand your notes. And when you’re ready to switch from your Galaxy Tab A8 to your Galaxy smartphone, you can share text, a webpage, pictures and more between devices with quick copy and paste.
