Samsung has announced a second tablet - the Galaxy Tab A 10.5، aimed at normal people who just want to watch iPlayer and send emojis over Messenger، according to "Pocket-Lint".

The Korean behemoth made a bit of a song and dance about the new Galaxy Tab S4 yesterday - a pro tablet with included S Pen and the ability to connect up a keyboard and mouse and use it like a PC.

But it forgot to even mention there was a second tablet to us. Which is rather surprising as the 530g Tab A 10.5 is quite noteworthy as Samsung's key mainstream tablet. Like the S4، it's available in both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi plus LTE variants.

As you'd expect there's a 10.5-inch screen (1،920×1،200) and four Dolby Atmos-enhanced speakers. You can also switch the tab into Kids Mode with a child-friendly interface، apps and browser. There are also eight child-friendly apps already on the device including a Brio railway one (which we're actually going to go away and try ASAP!).

There's a Type-C port for charging، microSD support to top up the 32GB of onboard storage and 3GB of memory. As with the S4، the underpinnings are Qualcomm-based - this time using the Snapdragon 450 platform.

Camera-wise، there's a 8 megapixel unit on the back and 5 megapixel on the front. There's no 4K playback or recording، instead sticking with Full HD 30fps for recording (though you can playback 60fps).

As with the Tab S4،m there's a 7،300mAh battery on board. Samsung cited a 16 hour battery life while playing video on the Tab S4، so expect the same or a little better here.
