 Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 Specs

Recently, Samsung launched two Galaxy S2 tablets which are the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A . Both tablets featuring 8-inch and 9.7-inch displays respectively are the company's thinnest and lightest tablet of the size, making them comfortable to use for a long period of time.

As one of the tablets launched, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 is a  new mid-range tablet whose specifications are almost similar to that of  the Samsung Galaxy Tab A. The major difference between these tablets lies in their screen size. While the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 sports a 9.7-inch TFT display with a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels, the Galaxy Tab A, has an 8-inch TFT display with a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels.

For the display, where previous Samsung tablet screens have had a 16:10 ratio, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 has a 4:3 ratio tablet screen which is easier for one to hold both in portrait and landscape orientation . Although it has a low pixel density of 132 ppi, which makes pictures unclear when compared with devices that have higher pixel densities, the build quality and battery life of the device makes it a good option for people who are looking for a high end Android tablet at an affordable price.
