SEOUL, Korea – October 23, 2023 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced its new Galaxy Tab A9 series, delivering Samsung Galaxy’s awesome tablet experiences at great value. Available in two sizes, the series combines immersive video and audio with hyper-fast connectivity — supporting everyday entertainment and productivity needs in a portable package. The Galaxy Tab A9 and Galaxy Tab A9+ exemplify the Galaxy connected ecosystem, offering a continuous experience across multiple devices, as well as innovative ways for users and their loved ones to safely navigate the digital realm.

“We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the latest innovations in tablet technology,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ Mobile eXperience Business. “With the latest Galaxy Tab A series release, we’re making it easier than ever for all to enjoy great entertainment and productive multitasking across the entire Galaxy ecosystem.”

Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 and Galaxy Tab A9+ Press Release
Engineered For Pure Viewing Pleasure
The Galaxy Tab A9 and A9+ offer the largest screens of any Galaxy A series tablet yet, with 8.7 and 11-inch displays1,respectively, that immerse users in their favorite movies, shows, or games.

Galaxy Tab A9+ users can get lost in cinematic experiences, thanks to a 90Hz refresh rate — for lag free gaming or scrolling — and enjoy immersive sound with Quad speakers, powered by Dolby Atmos. With hyper-fast 5G connectivity2, there’s no need to worry about interrupted streaming when you’re on the go. Galaxy Tab A9 features Dual speakers and LTE connectivity. Both tablets feature sleek, unibody designs with a soft-texture back cover, making them easy to handle.

Awesome Performance
Galaxy Tab A9 and A9+ provide exceptional performance and speed that empower users to accomplish more. With the largest memory and storage available on a Galaxy Tab A series, there is plenty of room to store and save documents, sources of inspiration and more.

Engineered to enhance productivity and the ability to learn, the Galaxy Tab A9+ brings PC-level multitasking to the tablet with Samsung DeX and the multi-active window allows up to three split-screens3 to maximize the ability to do more at once. Galaxy Tab A series users can now record their screen with Screen Recorder4, so it’s easy to refer back to information or inspiration later.

Your Galaxy, Your Way
The Galaxy Tab A series enables seamless connectivity across Samsung Galaxy devices, so users can easily move content between mobile, tablet and TV monitors. Quick Share5 simplifies file sharing without requiring  device pairing, so users can send their favorite content between devices.

The new Galaxy Tab A series also ensures that data is safe and secured by Samsung Knox, Samsung’s award-winning, multi-layered security platform. The Security & Privacy Dashboard empowers users to easily see and control what happens to their data. With Private Share, content is encrypted before it’s shared. The sender can set access permissions, expiration dates and more to have extra peace of mind when sending sensitive information. And with Secure Wi-Fi, users can take their Galaxy Tab A9 or A9+ on the go without worrying about risky shared internet networks. Internet traffic is encrypted and tracking apps are blocked so browsing is private and secure.

Tablets have become an essential source of entertainment and learning for children, and Samsung Kids helps children safely navigate the digital realm. With a simple set up process, parents and caregivers can monitor and control children’s digital activities, access settings, create child profiles, set playtime and monitor the content that children are consuming. Plus, Samsung Galaxy’s ‘Edutainment’ provides fun and engaging content on-device.

The Galaxy Tab A9 series will be available from October 23, starting with select markets. The series comes in three refined colors6: Graphite, Silver and Navy.
