The latest Galaxy Tab A Series optimises your everyday routine—from entertainment to hybrid learning

 

 

Samsung Malaysia Electronics today announced the local release of its new Galaxy Tab A8, the most streamlined and powerful Tab A Series device yet. The Galaxy Tab A8 packs impressive screen, power and performance into a slim and lightweight design that’s ready for learning, connecting, entertainment and more. It’s a captivating portable experience that matches users’ everyday lifestyles and budgets and seamlessly syncs with other Galaxy devices.

 

“Tablets have become an indispensable device for many, especially in a world where remote learning is the norm”, said Edward Han, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “The Tab A8 is a perfect device for many to get more out of their activities at home and on the go. Since more people are using tablets for video calls, online classrooms, gaming and streaming, the Galaxy Tab A8 is equipped with brilliant new features to help Malaysians connect on a new level.”

 

 

Everything You Want to See and Do is Enhanced

The Galaxy Tab A8 experience begins with Samsung’s signature tablet design and feel, loved by users of the Tab S series. Its lightweight form boasts an expanded 10.5-inch screen with a remarkably slim 10.2mm bezel and a 16:10 common aspect ratio. The result is an 80.1 percent screen to body ratio, which enables a much more immersive viewing experience than past tablet models. Whether users are streaming a favorite show, gaming with friends or catching up with family on video calls, the Galaxy Tab A8’s quad-speaker with Dolby Atmos® provides a rich soundscape with unparalleled detail, depth and realism. The Galaxy Tab A8 is available in Gray and new Pink Gold.

 

Beyond its incredible display, Galaxy Tab A8 packs even more power and performance into Samsung’s Tab A series experience. The Galaxy Tab A8’s CPU and GPU have each been increased by 10%[1] to deliver faster, smoother performance without frustrating lag. The Galaxy Tab A8 comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and the expandable microSD card feature allows up to 1TB of additional space[2]. A 7,040mAh[3] battery with up to 15W[4] fast-charging means that users can stream for hours on end[5], without worrying about losing power.

 

 

A Galaxy of Convenience and Protection

The Galaxy Tab A8 delivers an entertaining and productive experience enhanced by Galaxy’s open ecosystem of devices and partners that aims to make everyday life easier and better in meaningful ways. The past two years have proven that tablets can be a gateway to better experiences—for both work and play. The Galaxy Tab A8 offers robust interactive educational content and convenient parental controls that make it easy for parents to provide their kids with a safe and engaging learning environment at home and on the go. Users can instantly access a comprehensive snapshot of device usage and activity all in one place and can set screen time goals and track progress against them throughout the week. Kids can also enjoy a fun, personalised tablet experience, thanks to Samsung’s partnerships with global content partners and the ability to customise the home screen with playful icons and color schemes.

 

For simpler, powerful multitasking, you can split your screen and use two apps side-by-side, and even add a pop-up window too, with the Multi-Active Window feature. If you’re in a lecture, you can simultaneously discuss with classmates, take notes and view a presentation all at once. And when browsing the internet, simply drag a link from your current window to the side to create a split screen. The Drag & Split feature automatically opens a second browser window for more dynamic webpage browsing.[6]

 

With Galaxy Tab A8’s 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and brand-new Screen Recorder feature, students, teachers and even gamers never have to miss a thing. You can record clear, detailed videos of tutorials or lectures, or even record yourself giving a demonstration with your voice and screen. This feature allows you to record yourself making annotations, as you highlight key points or write on screen, to match what you say with what you see, helping you to focus better and understand your notes. And when you’re ready to transition from your Galaxy Tab A8 to your Galaxy smartphone, share text, a webpage, images and more, between the devices with a quick copy and paste.

 

Most importantly, users can enjoy all the functionality of the Galaxy Tab A8 with confidence and peace of mind. Galaxy Tab A8 is backed by Samsung’s industry-leading Knox security platform with multi-layer protection. Face recognition ensures Galaxy Tab A8 owners are the only ones with easy access to their device. Constant real-time protection of the core software ensures outside threats can’t gain access to the device.
