Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 specs and price before availability
In mid-2015 we saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6, and now it appears a smaller version is about to arrive. Some Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 specs as well as a price have emerged before official availability. It’s reported that the mid-range 4G LTE tablet will release very soon.
We’ll begin with pricing and the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 price for Taiwan is reported as TWD 8,990. That equates to around $268,£190,€245, or Rs. 18,100 although prices can vary by region. That’s actually a higher price than for the Galaxy Tab E 9.6 when it launched, although the Tab E 8.0 has 4G LTE connectivity and voice calling that the Tab E 9.6 lacked.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is expected to release in Taiwan by the end of January. Availability outside Taiwan has not been detailed yet, although it’s likely to release in at least some further markets. The tablet has a polycarbonate build and is similar in styling to the larger Tab E 9.6.
Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 specifications include a 1.3GHz quad-core processor (chipset unspecified but possibly the Snapdragon 410), and an 8-inch display with resolution of 1280 x 800. It has 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (expandable with microSD card to 128GB), and also comes with free 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage.
Further to this the Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera (no flash), and a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper. A 5000 mAh battery that should offer over 13 hours of video playback or Internet use supplies the juice. It runs the Android 5.0.1 operating system skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
The tablet comes with pre-installed Microsoft Office apps, and online content from certain providers free for a limited time. Connectivity is catered for with 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS/A-GLONASS, and microUSB 2.0. A listing for the device confirms it in ‘Classic White’ although a black version is also likely. The tablet weighs in at 360g and measures 212.1mm x 126.1mm x 8.9mm.
