The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2017 (8.0) has been at the centre of multiple recent leaks. The device is a budget oriented tablet focussed on first-time users and kids. This was summed up by its rather modest specifications combined with the large display.

Internally the tablet packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. This is expandable via a microSD card up to 128GB. The 8.0-inch display panel has a resolution of 800 x1200 (HD+) but it is not known of which type, AMOLED or IPS. The primary rear camera of the tablet is an 8-megapixel sensor at the back with a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front. All this hardware is powered by a 5000mAh battery and out of the box the tablet will run on Android v.7.1.1., Nougat under Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
