Samsung’s all-new Galaxy Tab A8 goes on sale for the first time
Amazon is now offering the all-new Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Wi-Fi 32GB Android Tablet for $200. Normally fetching $230, today’s offer delivers the very first price cut since launching back in January and amounts to $30 in savings. You can also save on the 64GB and 128GB models at up to $50 off.
Samsung’s just-released Galaxy Tab A8 may not pack as much power as the new S8/+ devices, but arrives with a more compact 10.5-inch LCD display. The four Dolby Atmos speakers make it just as capable for catching up on content away from the TV, and if the upwards of 128GB of onboard storage isn’t enough, a microSD card slot can deliver additional room for storing content. You can get all of the details on what to expect in our announcement coverage, as well.
