Samsung properly announced the US launch date of the brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 yesterday in a press release, and Samsung says that the official launch date is September 14 and that it will take orders from the stores Samsung, and Amazon, and Walmart on Friday 14th.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 was unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 on August 1, and it was released in parts of Europe and Asia in the middle of August.
Specs of this new 10.5-inch Android 8.1 Oreo tablet includes a Full HD resolution LCD display at 1920 x 1200, 4 stereo speakers, powered by the octa-core 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD card support up to 400GB, with Full Wi-Fi coverage, a 5MP front camera, 8MP rear camera with LED flash/light, GPS, GLONASS, a USB C port, facial recognition login, and a 7300 mAh battery good for a battery life over 14 hours.
And in a similar kind of way to the Fire HD 8 tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 (and the new Tab S4) goes into “smart home dashboard panel” mode once it’s connected to the Charging Dock Pogo.
