Samsung launches Galaxy Tab A7 Lite: compact and lightweight tablet with LTE inexpensively


Samsung continues to expand its Galaxy Tab lineup. Following the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE, which we talked about a couple of days ago, the brand has released another tablet. This is the entry-level model dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite.

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is a lightweight version of the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 released in 2020, and literally lightweight. The new tablet really weighs less than the original model and costs significantly less.

The Lite version is equipped with an 8.7-inch LCD-display with a resolution of 1340 by 800 pixels and an aspect ratio of 15 to 9. There is a 2-megapixel front camera with fixed focus in the frame above the display — this is enough for making video calls. And on the back of the tablet is an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus, which is capable of shooting Full HD video.

The heart of the new tablet from Samsung is the MediaTek Helio P22T chipset, which includes eight Cortex-A53 processing cores and the PowerVR GE8320 graphics accelerator. In the base configuration, the processor is complemented by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, and the top model has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. In both cases, it is possible to expand the internal memory using a microSD memory card with a capacity of up to 1 TB, for which a separate slot is allocated. A rechargeable battery with a capacity of 5100 mAh is responsible for the autonomy of the novelty, which is charged via a USB Type-C port with a power of 15 W.

For wireless communications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite supports Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS. A 5G model is available for a fee. The tablet also has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support and a standard 3.5mm audio jack for connecting headphones.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite will go on sale in the European market in mid-June. It will appear in Russia as well. Here, its sales will begin on June 10th. The recommended retail price is 13 thousand rubles for the version with Wi-Fi and 17 thousand rubles for the model with LTE.
