Samsung Galaxy Tab A for T-Mobile confirmed, launching August 19


The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ aren’t the only new Samsung devices launching at T-Mobile, because the Galaxy Tab A is headed our way, too.

T-Mobile has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab A will launch online and “in participating stores” on August 19. Pricing will be set at $0 down, 23 payments of $13.34, and 1 payment of $13.17, which adds up to a total price of $319.99.

As a refresher, the Galaxy Tab A has an 8-inch 1024×768 Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, and Android 5.0.2 beneath Samsung custom user interface. It’ll also include support for LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 7, and 12.

So yeah, the Galaxy Tab A isn’t a particularly highly-specced tablet, but having more options is always a nice thing. That’s especially true when T-Mo currently offers only two other Android tablets, the Alcatel OneTouch PIXI 7 and LG G Pad F 8.0.

      I don’t think so. It looks like a painting, perhaps in watercolor :/

    319? is it not a bit pricey for the specs?

    T-Mobile still offers the Galaxy TAB S in stores.

    Still waiting for announcement of Galaxy Slot B.

    1024×768 will look like crap on a screen that size

  • duscrom

    Wait.. since when does the Tab A have an AMOLED screen? I’m pretty sure its a basic LCD screen.

    Agreed poor specs for the price. For just a few bucks more could get the iPad mini (wifi only).

      The iPad mini sucks

    I might be the lone dissenter here but I am not a fan of Samsung because of the buggy software. The Samsung UI has ALWAYS (at least to me) felt clunky and bloated. If you could put an HTC software build on Samsung hardware, you’d have a really decent phone.

      The buggy software….must not have used samsung for years. LoL

    Don’t mix it up with Tab S2 which has 2048*1536 AMOLED.
    This model only has IPS.

  • dan lol

    This one has band 12 which is a must for me
