At Samsung, we continue to work towards meaningful innovation that delights our customers and meet their unique needs. The Galaxy Tab A is designed for both parents and kids.

Samsung Galaxy tablet for parents and kids

To improve everyday usability and performance, the 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A is equipped with a bright display for watching your favorite TV shows, playing games or browsing the internet on a screen that looks good even under bright sunlight. The new tablet also has an optional blue light filter to balance the brightness and reduce eye strain, making it easier to view content at night and in dim lighting settings.

Daily family life can get hectic, so the Galaxy Tab A strives to add convenience with the new Home Mode, which can be configured to show up to three displays, providing a quick glance at information like the time, calendar, weather or photos even while the device is charging.

Each family member can have their own login with ‘Multi User’ mode to securely save their favorite settings and apps. With ‘Parental Control’, parents can set limits on usage and customize available content to create a fun and safe environment for younger users. Users can easily view their installed apps and content on personalized Bixby Home screens.

A special ‘Kids Mode’ features exciting games, videos and content from partners, including 5000 videos and games from The LEGO Group as well as a social network themed LEGO Life app with exclusive sticker content.

With 16GB of built-in storage and expandable memory (up to 256GB) for additional content storage, the Galaxy Tab A allows users to store more apps and content whether at-home or on-the-go.
