Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) renamed to Galaxy Tab A2 S

28 August 2017 2

Samsung is back with a new tablet which is expected to be released in the upcoming weeks. There has been a lot of hype and leaks regarding this tablet which has been flooding the internet. The tab in question is the so called Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017). However, Samsung is still keeping quiet on the matter. Well, it seems like the company isn’t too happy with the name given to it. So, they decided to change it!


The tablet which was previously referred to as the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) is going to have a change of name. It will now be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S. While quite a few might be happy with this change, others may find this name a lot more confusing. What does seem odd is that while Samsung decided to change the name, the model number remains the same (SM-T380/SM-T385). A GFX Bench listing actually revealed the specifications of the tab. This revealed all hardware related information, including the CPU, GPU, RAM, and even storage options. It seems like most leaks are now appearing through popular benchmark records.

The 8-inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S sports a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The quad core driven device has 2GB of RAM and will come with Android v7.0, Android Nougat. What still remains a mystery is the battery capacity of the tab which will definitely matter a lot.

The Tab A 8.0 means the tablet with 8-inch screen, right? That's self explanatory to have the name that way so we get an idea of the screen size too.
