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. Take a look at the specs sheet below: How to control your TV and DTH with the Samsung Galaxy S5

As mentioned earlier, both tablets offer metal construction which is a noteworthy shift from Samsung’s earlier plastic builds. One other change from previous tablet displays is the 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the generally used 16:9 or 16:10. On the software front, both tablets will come with Microsoft Office pre-installed and 100GB on OneDrive for 2 years. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Review
