Samsung has rolled out a new tablet that offers some surprising features at a low price. The tablet is called the Galaxy Tab A 8.4 and it comes standard with 32GB of internal storage. Perhaps the best feature considering the under $300 price point for the tablet is that it has integrated LTE connectivity.

Samsung promises that the tablet can run for up to 10 hours on a charge and it has integrated Wi-Fi as you would expect from a modern tablet. Since the tablet runs Android, there is a microSD card slot for additional storage that supports up to 512GB cards. The tablet supports video chats with a 5MP front-facing camera, while an 8MP rear camera takes pictures and records video for sharing.

The 8.4-inch screen has native resolution of 1920x1080, while power comes from a 5000 mAh internal battery promising up to 12 hours of video playback and up to 99 hours of music playback per charge.

Samsung is selling the tablet right now on a Verizon or Sprint tablet data plan. The price is $279.99 or users can use Samsung Financing and get the tablet for $11.67 per month for 24 months with zero percent APR. Verizon offers the same financing deal.
