In a press event held earlier this week in Russia, Samsung Electronics quietly announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 and 8 inch tablets with all-metal body, sequel to last year Galaxy Tab 4 series. We’ve heard for quite some time that the Korean OEM will be introducing a letter based naming scheme and it started with the Tab S series.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A duo are placed below Galaxy Tab S series and the specs are far from impressive. Both feature a 1024 x 768 pixels screen resolution and they are powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor (presumably the Snapdragon 410, at least on the LTE models), with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and 2 and 5MP cameras.
Additionally, the Tab A duo pack 4,200 mAh (8 incher) and 6,000 mAh non-removable batteries.
Pricing starts at $275 and goes up to $310 for the WiFi-only models, and between $340 – $375 for the 4G LTE variants (the 8-inch tabs), while the 9.7-inch models cost each $65 more.
