Samsung Galaxy Tab A(2017) Features

The hardware Samsung is using is quite minimal. The 8-inch screen has workable 1280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution and on the inside, there is entry-grade quad-core Snapdragon 425 mobile platform paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. If you think that’s a bit too lackluster, that’s probably because Samsung doesn’t expect you to be using it as a smartphone.
