Galaxy Tab S5e tablet returns to Amazon low
Amazon currently offers the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e 64GB Android Tablet for $350. Normally selling for $400, today’s offer is good for a $50 discount, is still one of the first times we’ve seen it on sale, and matching the Amazon all-time low.
Centered around a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S5e tablet features up to 14-hours of battery life per charge for all-day usage alongside additional perks like face unlocking technology. It comes backed by 64GB of internal storage, and if that’s not enough, microSD card support allows for easy expansion. Learn more in our announcement coverage.
Android apps run on HP’s affordable 14-inch Chromebook
Amazon is offering the HP 14-inch Chromebook 2.2GHz/4GB/32GB (14-db0050nr) for $180. That’s $50 off the going rate found at retailers like Best Buy and is within $1 of the lowest price we have tracked.
This affordable Chromebook sports a design that in many ways mimics the white MacBooks that Apple made many years ago. Since it runs Chrome OS, your laptop is always up to date. Support for the Google Play Store is in tow, allowing you to run Android apps whenever the need strikes. Users can power through a typical workday thanks to an 8.5-hour battery.
Motorola’s Moto G8 Plus sees first price drop
Amazon is currently offering the GSM unlocked Motorola Moto G8 Plus 64GB Android Smartphone for $200 in Cosmic Blue. Having dropped from $280, today’s offer is good for a nearly 30% discount, marks the first time we’ve seen it on sale, and a new all-time low.
As one of the latest additions to the Moto Android smartphone family, the G8 Plus sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ display and is rounded out by a 48MP camera, ultra-wide lens, and depth sensor. A 40-hour battery makes daily charging a thing of the past and its water-repellent design keeps your handset protected from spills and the like.
Fossil’s stainless steel HR smartwatch is $129
Amazon is currently offering the Fossil Gen 4 Explorist HR Smartwatch 45mm with Stainless Steel Band for $129. Having dropped from $179, today’s offer saves you 23%, beats our previous mention by $20, and marks a new Amazon all-time low. Powered by Wear OS, this smartwatch is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It brings heart rate monitoring, a suite of fitness tracking capabilities, notifications, and more to your wrist with up to 24-hours of battery life per charge. Plus, a stainless steel casing and band offer a stylish appearance.
