The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) sports an 8-inch WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat, and supports a single Nano-SIM card. There’s no mention of voice calling support.

To recall, the original model came with a 5-megapixel rear camera without flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Connectivity options for the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm jack, and GPS + GLONASS / Beidou. The tablet measures 212.1×124.1×8.9mm and weighs 364grams which is slightly thicker and heavier than the 2015 model, likely due to a bigger 5000mAh battery this time around.
