Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0: Compatibility

As tablet manufacturer's release new editions of their device each year, it can be hard to determine which RAM® cradle is compatible with your new (or old) device.

Unlike Apple, who add a number to their new editions (ie. Apple iPad mini 5; Apple iPad Air 2; etc), Samsung has a habit of keeping the same name for their devices, even as new editions are released - and even when their physical dimensions change. For this reason, it's paramount to know which year your Samsung device was released. 

Below are the different dimensions for the last several editions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8":
