As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has released a new Galaxy Tab A tablet in the U.S.

Called the Galaxy Tab A 8.4” (2020), the tablet sports a slightly bigger and higher-res screen (8.4 inches, 1920 x 1200 pixels) than the 8.0-inch Galaxy Tab A (8 inches, 1280 x 800 pixels) released last year.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Tab A 8.4” is powered by an octa-core SoC (likely to be the Exynos 7904), which again is an upgrade over its predecessor’s quad-core Snapdragon 429 chip. While ROM size remains at 32GB (expandable via microSD), RAM has increased from 2GB to 3GB.

In the camera department, the new tablet still has an 8-megapixel rear camera, but the front camera is now a decent 5MP module (a measly 2MP previously). While battery capacity has dipped slightly from 5,100mAh to 5,000mAh, the new model still offers up to 12 hours of video playback time and 11 hours of internet use time. Better yet, the new tablet supports fast charging over its USB-C port (file transfer speeds remain at USB 2.0).

Wireless connectivity is also upgraded on the 4G LTE-capable Galaxy Tab A 8.4”: there’s now 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support.

It’s unknown at the moment when the new tablet will reach our shores — we’ll update this piece when we’ve more details.
