Samsung announces 8 & 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab A tablets


Samsung has announced its new Galaxy Tab A range. This new tablet range will feature thin, lightweight tablets with metal construction. The company announced two new tablets under this range; one is an 8-inch model and the other is a 9.7-inch model.

Both tablets offer similar specifications as far as internal hardware is concerned. Beyond that, since the tablets come in different sizes, outer dissimilarities are quite obvious.
