Realizing the growing demand for Tablets Samsung has debuted two new members to the Galaxy Tab Portfolio: Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is the first  Fan Edition tablet from Samsung while A7 Lite is the budget offering from the company. We have already covered it in our previous post so, in this post, we will be talking about the specs, features, and expected price of the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite in Nepal.

Galaxy Tab A7 Lite Overview

Display and Design

Firstly in terms of display, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite comes with a TFT panel that measures 8.7-inch and has a resolution of 800 x 1340 pixels. It also does not offer a high refresh rate but still, the specs are satisfactory for the Tablet of this price range. It comes in two models- the Wi-Fi model and next is the LTE model. The Wi-Fi model measures 8mm thickness and weighs 366 grams while the LTE model is slightly heavier at 371 grams. The screen is smaller than the size of the regular tablet and what is more unpleasing is that the screen has thicker bezels making the display area even narrower. Users can choose in between Gray and Silver color options.

Performance and Memory

As far as the processor is concerned, Galaxy Tab A7 Lite packs a 12 nm Helio P22T chipset from MediaTek. The SoC is coupled with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Since the device is not equipped with a high processor, it might fall short in terms of performance. In terms of software, this smartphone runs on Android 11 that is based on One UI 3.1.

Users have Two RAM options in this device, 3GB and 4GB RAM variants- the 3GB RAM comes with 32GB onboard storage and the 4GB RAM comes with 64GB onboard storage. In case you need to expand Tab’s storage, you can easily expand it up to 1TB using an SD card.

Battery and Extras

Moving to the battery, Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is powered by a 5,100 mAh battery that has decent battery life. It comes with a USB Type-C port that supports 15W adaptive fast charging but for this, you need to purchase a charger separately. Like the Galaxy S7 FE tablet, the Galaxy Tab A7 also comes with an 8MP camera at the back that can record 1080p video at 30fps.  But there is only a 2 MP front-facing camera for taking selfies and making video calls.

Does the A7 Lite 8.7 have dual speakers?

Yes, it does. It comes with dual speakers that support Dolby Atmos audio for a better experience while watching videos or listening to your favorite songs.

Can it be charged wirelessly?

 It does not support wireless charging. Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is powered by a 5,100 mAh battery that has decent battery life. It comes with a USB Type-C port that supports 15W adaptive fast charging.

Does this tablet have a GPS chip or is it GPS compatible?

Yes, this tablet has a GPS chip.

Is the MediaTek Processor on this model, just as good as the Qualcomm processor on other models?

Performance-wise MediaTek’s processors are solid performing. Their extra core processors enable intensive and heavy task performing and they are very good at multi-tasking. Snapdragon has even better performance in multi-tasking, handling heavy and intensive tasks, and gaming.
