Samsung officially announced nan caller 11-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ for nan North American marketplace coming alongside nan 8.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A9. It will beryllium released successful nan US coming connected Monday October 23 from $229.
This Android tablet replaces nan Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, and will from now connected beryllium nan cheapest Samsung tablet successful nan 10- to 11-inch range.
It’s launching pinch Android 13 and Samsung’s personification interface One UI, pinch some 3 years worthy of Android updates arsenic good arsenic regular information updates.
The 11-inch LCD surface connected nan Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ has Full HD show solution of 1920 x 1200, pinch an improved 90 Hz refresh rate, which will thief support this tablet enactment modern for longer. So that was a smart move.
As for hardware specs, Samsung went for nan octa-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, pinch nan 2 exemplary options of 4GB of RAM pinch 64GB of storage, aliases 8GB of RAM pinch 128GB of storage. On apical of that we person support for microSD cards up to 1TB successful capacity nether Android 13.
Other Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ exemplary choices are betwixt Wi-Fi only (model SM-X210), aliases cellular 5G connectivity (models SM-X216 and SM-X218).
The predecessor was awesome for watching movies on, pinch its 4 speakers. And nan Tab A9+ is moreover amended pinch a larger and amended screen, while it still has quad speakers, pinch a 1.2W capacity and Dolby Atmos.
The beforehand camera is an 8MP camera, while nan rear camera is an 8MP camera truthful that will amended nan value of nan video chats.
In position of artillery life, it is rated to 10 hours long, squeezed retired of nan 7040 mAh batteri which supports QC2.0 charging.
Connectivity choices are betwixt dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), Bluetooth 5.1, nan optional 5G, and nan USB-C port. So 5G connected a comparatively inexpensive tablet is besides thing that sets this tablet isolated a little.
This is nan thinnest “budget tablet” connected nan marketplace today, pinch a thickness of a specified 6.9mm, which I find very impressive, and it adds to its credentials.
Not only that, but pinch a weight of 480 grams for nan Wi-Fi type and 491 grams for nan 5G version, nan 11-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ is moreover somewhat lighter than nan 11-inch flagship tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab S9. So that’s impressive.
And finally, while nan predecessor ne'er had a keyboard option, Samsung has yet made a keyboard screen for nan Tab A9+, called nan Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ Book Cover Keyboard Slim, which makes this tablet moreover much useful. The keyboard isn’t fresh yet though, truthful that will beryllium launched later.
Another accessory is nan Book Cover, which is an origami style folio screen that tin beryllium group up arsenic a tablet guidelines successful some image and scenery mode.
The predecessor was hugely popular, and there’s nary logic why this tablet won’t beryllium too. Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ does not person pen support, successful an effort to support costs down. So those features are reserved for Samsung’s much costly tablets.
Or if personification needs that, they could person a look astatine nan Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd gen) instead, nan Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Refresh, aliases moreover nan the Fire Max 11.
Beyond that, this will beryllium nan caller tablet to bargain successful nan 11-inch scope erstwhile you don’t request immoderate higher specs.
