Samsung unveiled its mid-range Android tablet, Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) about two weeks ago in Europe, but the company didn’t reveal its pricing nor did it announce its plans for other markets. 

Now it seems that the South Korean company is looking to introduce the tablet to the Indian market.  A dedicated page for the Galaxy Tab A8 clearly suggests that the tablet might launch soon in the country.  

The product listing reveals everything, except the pricing and the availability details. However, judging by the specifications, it should fall in the mid-range category. 

Interestingly, the new tablet comes with a Unisoc Tiger T618 processor, which compared to its predecessors' Snapdragon 662 SoC, might offer a marginal upgrade. The Amazon listing suggests that the Galaxy Tab A8 will be available in up to 4GB of memory and up to 128GB of storage options - which again gives the upcoming tablet a slight edge over the Galaxy Tab A7.
