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
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.
