Samsung officially launched its Galaxy FE series products, the Galaxy S23 FE, the Galaxy Buds FE, and the Galaxy Tab S9 FE, earlier this month, with much hype around the products. 

While not well-known, the Korean tech giant had also silently launched the Galaxy Tab A9 and Galaxy Tab A9 Plus in India earlier this month. 

Despite being a decent-budget Android tablet, we are not sure why the company tried to keep the launch so low-key, but the company has officially announced the global launch of the tablet duo. 

The information comes from Samsung’s official newsroom announcement. While Samsung revealed the spec details through the official announcement, it didn’t reveal a few key details, including the pricing and availability. 

According to the company, the Galaxy Tab A9 and Galaxy Tab A9 Plus are coming to the select markets in three colorways – Graphite, Silver, and Navy with accessories like a book cover case and a book cover keyboard slim, sold separately.

The Galaxy Tab A9 is a budget Android tablet, so don’t expect any groundbreaking hardware under the hood.
