Liew said the studio provides a good opportunity for those unfamiliar with Samsung products to get up-close and personal with it and how they are created to fit the users' lives perfectly, be it for work or leisure.

"Simply referred to as the Galaxy Tab A (8.0"), Samsung's latest tablet is being targeted at families with kids in search of a big-screen entertainment solution that won't break the bank. A quick rundown of how this will reportedly work - there are only 7,500 spots for the entire USA. But then, it is noteworthy that in the report Samsung didn't name any device as such. Samsung is one of the few companies still releasing tablets in 2017, and following the high-end Tab S3 that came out earlier this year, we now have a much more affordable option with the latest entry in the Galaxy Tab A series.

While Samsung is yet to confirm the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program, it's also unknown if the company is planning a similar programme for the recently launched Galaxy Note 8 as well.

After discreetly launching the respectable but forgettable Galaxy Tab A (2017) in countries like India or Vietnam, and announcing the ruggedized, business-optimized Galaxy Tab Active2 for "select markets" around the world, the time has come today for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Tab A (8.0) in the USA with minimal fanfare as well.

Also new is a feature to limit the power usage of background applications, which will make them less of a drain on battery life. This clearly indicates that the upcoming Oreo update will improve the phone's performance.

Post getting the Oreo update, the smartphones will have picture-in-picture mode that lets users to two tasks simultaneously. However, other companies are still working on pushing the update as soon as possible to its devices.
