Samsung has announced its new Galaxy Tab A range. This new tablet range will feature thin, lightweight tablets with metal construction. The company announced two new tablets under this range; one is an 8-inch model and the other is a 9.7-inch model.

Both tablets offer similar specifications as far as internal hardware is concerned. Beyond that, since the tablets come in different sizes, outer dissimilarities are quite obvious.

As mentioned earlier, both tablets offer metal construction which is a noteworthy shift from Samsung’s earlier plastic builds. One other change from previous tablet displays is the 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the generally used 16:9 or 16:10. On the software front, both tablets will come with Microsoft Office pre-installed and 100GB on OneDrive for 2 years.e711119c85191bc705d19f38323d2e340b707c15
