Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) is a new Android tablet that’s coming to T-Mobile


T-Mobile launched Apple’s new iPad Pro tablets today, but if Android is more your thing, there’s a new Samsung tablet coming soon to T-Mobile as well.

Samsung has announced the new Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020). This new tablet is focused on keeping you entertained wherever you want to watch videos, offering an 8.4-inch 1920×1200 LCD screen as well as dual speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The 5000mAh battery included with the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) is estimated to last 10 hours on a single charge. And when it comes time to recharge, it offers fast charging over USB-C to help you refill more quickly.

There’s 32GB of built-in storage included with Samsung’s new tablet, but if that’s not enough, you can use a microSD card to add up to 512GB of additional storage. There’s also 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras, and an octa-core Exynos 7904 processor packed into the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020)’s body, which Samsung says has a “premium finish” and weighs 0.7 pounds.


When it comes to connectivity, you’ve got your choice of Wi-Fi that supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz as well as built-in 4G LTE connectivity.

Samsung tells me that the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) will be available from T-Mobile in the coming weeks, but no other launch or pricing details are available right now. The tablet will also be sold by AT&T, Sprint, and US Cellular, and Samsung is selling a Verizon version right now for $279.99.

There aren’t many companies regularly releasing new Android tablets lately, so it’s good to see Samsung releasing another Galaxy Tab. With built-in 4G LTE and a sub-$300 price tag, the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020) could be a solid option if you’re in the market for an affordable tablet that can get you online even when you’re away from Wi-Fi.

    Would prefer a slightly better or more original version, even if only just a smidgen. Either these identical specs but @ 10.5″ (and even larger!)
    OR go down in size to 7-7.5″ w as small a bezel as possible (to fit in pocket dispense bag) OR at this size bump up storageramresolution.
    8″ 32gb tablets are a dime a dozen- competing vs ZTE & Alcatel to name just two that have been available for free @ different promos makes no real sense…especially at that kinda unwieldy size yet still kinda unusable specsperformance level: it’s too large for carrying in pocket while too small & underspecced for getting work done, so it really satisfies no particular group. Either make it more easily portable OR since it requires a bagcase anyhow- increase the size & specs even if only a bit more.
    Larger & better specced models with full calling capabilities already exist but only in other countries. Poorer & less-developed ones get better phones & tablets @ lesser price points than us. We lead the world in paying more for lesser quality in phones, food and housing.

    I’ll pass.. I don’t think I ever want a Exynos processor again. I’d rather have one with a Snapdragon 845 as the budget option at this point.

      Unfortunately, the Exynos 7904 is more comparable to the Snapdragon 660. The 845 is well ahead of both in most aspects.

    Why they couldn’t make this into 4/64 model? Or better yet why doesn’t Tmo sells Samsung windows tablet? The other 3 bigs do,why doesn’t Tmo? Smh

    Samsung mid range tablets don’t age well, my LG tablet still runs great and I got it at the same time as the Samsungs.

    • Bklynman

      Yea,they don’t upgraded them. I still have my from,I believe 2016. Never had problem with it,stop using it when I got 10.1 2014 Note tablet from ebay for less than $200. Bad thing about android tablets and phones they only get so many updates,even if they are capable of getting 2 or 3,or more. I doubt that my Note9 will get anymore soft ware updates. It never got a update.

    I have the previous 2018/19 gen one. All I use it for is google maps and spotify in the car. Soooo slow. I have tried unsuccessfully to have Tmob credit me so I can spend another $400 for the Tab 6. Ugh.

    I’ll pay 600-700 for S6 or s7 8.4 inches. wheres the replacement for S2 8.2?

  • Linx

    Once it goes to $199 then it will be worth it.

    And here it is, 19 Jan 2021, and T-Mobile version is still not updated after Oct 2020, nevermind to UI 3.0!
