Moving on its camera segment, chances are Galaxy Tab A2 XL will be loaded with an 8MP rear sensor, whereas a solid 5MP front-camera will also be a pack of this package. Battery-wise, it will be equipped with a 7300mAh battery which can be fast charged via micro USB port. Amazing? As far as its software factor is concerned, Galaxy Tab A2 XL will run on Android 8.1 Oreo with no defined timeline of an upgrade.
