Samsung customers looking to buy a brand-new value-oriented Galaxy tablet in India might be able to pre-order one by the end of the week. Specifically, the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) will reportedly become available for pre-order in India on September 28 before shipping to customers early next month, reveals Telegana Today citing IANS.
Samsung India has yet to make any official announcements regarding the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) but the company’s global arm unveiled everything there is to know about the tablet earlier this month. Everything except for its release date and price. Samsung Taiwan had later confirmed that pre-orders for the new Galaxy Tab A7 will be accepted from October 1. A global release is likely to take place around the same date so the idea that the tablet will be available for pre-order in India later this week is quite believable.
A budget tablet through and through
Samsung has successfully occupied the high-end tablet segment in India earlier this month with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S7 series. The more powerful and expensive Galaxy Tab S7+, in particular, sold out within days, indicating that demand for tablets has increased as more people are stuck studying or working from home.
Compared to the Galaxy Tab S7 series, the upcoming Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) is a much more budget-oriented tablet. In other words, it caters to a different audience and it will help Samsung cover the Indian tablet market at a different price point, potentially boosting its market share even further.
The Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) has a 10.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 2000 by 1200 pixels and it’s powered by the Snapdragon 662 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of built-in storage. It’s a media consumption tablet featuring four speakers with Dolby Atmos support, and it’s equipped with a 7,040mAh battery that lacks fast charging.
Prices for India remain unknown but the tablet will go on sale in Taiwan for the starting price of $240, so you can expect a similar price point in other markets.
