The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is an Android tablet with mid-range specs and the price of a mid-range phone.

After unveiling the new 10.5 inch tablet in August, Samsung has announced it’ll be available for purchase in the US starting September 14th for $330.

That makes the tablet about the same price as an entry-level iPad ($329), but substantially more affordable than Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Tab S4 ($650).

Still, at a time when Amazon continues to crank out tablets that sell for between $50 and $150, the Galaxy Tab A 10.5 does look kind of pricey.

Here’s what you get for the price:

  • 10.5 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel LCD display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB storage
  • microSD card slot (up to 400GB)
  • 8MP rear camera (autofocus)
  • 5MP front camera (with LED flash)
  • USB 2.0 Type-C ports
  • 802.11ac WiFi
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • 7,300 mAh battery
  • 10.2″ x 6.3″ .3″
  • 1.2 pounds

Samsung will also add a 4G LTE model to the lineup later this year. It will be available from Sprint and  Verizon, while the WiFi-only version will be sold by Amazon, Walmart, and

The company has also announced that the new Galaxy A6 smartphone with a 5.6 inch, 1480 x 720 pixel display, an Exynos 7884 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is also coming to the US September 14th for $360.

  1. Use Case #1: Always on the lookout for tablet as a (mostly) comic book reader. 10.1″ @ 16:10 is ok-ish for full page displays. 10.5″ @ 1.2lbs might just give me my minimum requirements (screen size, aspect ratio, weight).

    Several years ago I was using a 13.3″ kocaso tablet (m1400), 16:10 – wonderful, eye-relieving experience. Every page just popped out at you. It was heavy, flaky touchscreen, non-existent sound and slow. Bad tablet overall but a decent, dedicated reader for comics.
