Samsung is planning to introduce new tablets this year. Two days ago the company trademarked the names Galaxy tab A, Tab E and Tab J for their new tablet series. The name corresponds to the series of smartphones they introduced in January. Today details related to two tablets from the A-series have been making rounds, let’s have a look at what the company has in store for us with these tablets.
Both Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus and Tab A are mid range tablets. Both the tablets will have a 9.7-inch and 8-inch versions which will be available with and without LTE connectivity. Both the tablets almost share the same spec sheet as well. One of the main difference between the two variants is that the Galaxy Tab A Plus will come with a stylus, the S Pen.
The 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab A Plus and Tab A will be powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm APQ8016 processor and will sport a display resolution of 1024 x 786 pixels. A 5-megapixel main and 2-meagpixel front camera will adorn the device along with 16 GB of internal storage. Galaxy Tab A Plus will feature a 2 GB RAM and Tab A will have 1.58 GB RAM. The 8-inch tablets will be powered by quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor and a 4200 mAh battery, while the 9.7-inch variant will be powered by a 6000mAh battery set. SamMobile claims that the tablets will be launched soon. We do not have an idea about the price or what other features the device may end up having but we will update you as soon as we get across that information.
Samsung was going to simplify their product line this year in lieu of their falling sales graph for the past two years but the way as things stand currently, we have seen the company introduce a lot of products in January only. Samsung launched smartphones from four different series, Galaxy A, E, J and Z series and that in no way looks simplification of their product line up and now same looks the case for their tablet line up. If they want to boost their sales graph they need to focus on quality instead of quantity. This is the aspect that different Chinese manufactures are banking on in the entry-level and mid-range category where Samsung is loosing ground to, they bring out products with great specifications and an affordable price tag. The company needs to re-think their strategy in terms of their products, focusing on their flagship only will not help, the entire product profile needs along with their strategy needs to be reassessed.
