Upon introducing the premium new Galaxy Tab S4 tablet, Samsung also revealed the new Galaxy Tab A 10.5. This is a slate designed for the whole family which includes a bunch of features that will make media consumption more enjoyable for you.
The Galaxy Tab A 10.5 comes packing a 10.5-inch TFT display with 1920 x 1200 resolution with pretty slim bezels. Unlike Samsung’s previous models, the Tab A 10.5 does not feature a physical home button under the display. Nor does it have a fingerprint scanner or a face unlock feature. So how will you be to access your tablet, while keeping it safe from prying eyes at the same time? Well, you’ll have to rely on the more traditional PINs and passwords.
