Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A promises an unforgettable visual experience

Samsung Electronics New Zealand has launched the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. 

Created for the whole family in mind, the Galaxy Tab A comes with features including an eight-inch display, family-friendly entertainment choices, uninterrupted gaming and a high-resolution camera that takes stunning photos, even in low light.

Todd Selwyn, Samsung New Zealand head of mobile product says, “The Galaxy Tab A is the perfect entertainment tablet making it ideal for all members of the family to enjoy.

“We have experienced steady growth in the tablet category and are confident Kiwis will be attracted to the new Galaxy Tab A given its competitive price point, making it perfect for anyone looking to purchase their first tablet.”

The refined design and smooth edges of the Galaxy Tab A aim to make it comfortable to hold. 

Its eight-inch WXGA display is meant to make it perfect for surfing the internet and watching movies.

Parents can entertain their children with Kids Mode, which features a range of content from likes of LEGO which will incite their curiosity and develop their creativity. 

The Parental Control menus also allow parents to supervise which content is accessible.

The Game Launcher is the ultimate control centre for games.

Users can see all their games in one convenient place, mute alerts while they play and disable other buttons so they don’t accidentally stop their game. 

Gamers can even turn on Power Saving Mode to extend battery life.

With the 25% increased battery life, the Galaxy Tab A’s powerful battery aims to make battery life concerns a thing of the past. 

Users are even able to get notifications forwarded from their smartphone to their tablet through Samsung Flow allowing them to enjoy fast, seamless connections.

In addition to the Galaxy Tab A being able to connect wirelessly to a user’s TV to stream content, New Zealanders who purchase the Galaxy Tab A can also receive three months free YouTube Red and Google Play Music, allowing them to watch ad-free videos, download videos to watch offline and stream the latest and greatest music.
The Galaxy Tab A is available in NZ now.
