A new Samsung tablet computer from China has been available in Hong Kong, as part of a broader strategy to boost the country’s mobile computing market.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.1 is a dual-core Samsung ARM-based tablet with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and a 5-inch screen.
The tablet is priced at HK$2,499 ($3,095).
Samsung is offering the device in two flavours, the Samsung Galaxy 7.5 Tab 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy 10.5 Mini, and both have been available since March.
The Samsung Galaxy Mini comes with a 13-inch 4K display.
The other model is the Samsung Tab 7, which has a 4.7-inch touchscreen display and is available for HK$1,699 ($1,795).
The Samsung Tab S7 and Tab S9 are also available in the mainland Chinese market.
Samsung has also introduced a range of smartwatches in mainland China, with the Tab S5, S7, S9 and Tab 10, among others, all selling in mainland markets.
The Samsung tablet market has grown significantly over the past few years.
In 2017, there were over 2.7 million Samsung tablet PCs sold in mainland mainland China.
In 2020, there was 2.5 million tablets sold in Taiwan.
With the advent of the mobile phone and smartwatch industries in mainland and Taiwan, Samsung’s efforts to expand its tablet market are likely to have a positive impact on the market.
