Verizon on Thursday added a new offering to its tablet portfolio, announcing that it's now retailing the Galaxy Tab E, Samsung's latest entry-level device aimed at consumers looking for gadgets that offer maximum value for money. The newly unveiled tablet is available for purchase from Verizon for zero down and $10.41 per month on the wireless carrier's two-year device payment plan, with that deal amounting to a full retail price of $249.99 with no annual percentage rate, so long as your credit score is in good standing. The Galaxy Tab E can also be purchased for $149.99 on a 24-month contract, Verizon confirmed.

The tablet only comes in black and additional color variants are unlikely to be introduced at a later date. Likewise, the sole model sold by Verizon features 32GB of internal flash memory, though users have the ability to expand its storage capabilities by up to 256GB with a microSD card. The tablet features an 8-inch TFT panel with a WXGA resolution of 1,280 by 800 pixels which is backed by a 5,000mAh battery that can sustain up to 24 hours of operation on a single charge, depending on the exact use cases, whereas the same cell is rated for a maximum of 27 days of standby time. The Galaxy Tab E comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat running beneath Samsung's proprietary mobile software suite which comes with a variety of extra features, including support for multiple user profiles that are easily switchable and allow you to turn the tablet into a true family device, according to the South Korean manufacturer.
The 4G LTE-enabled tablet has access to 1.5GB of RAM and a 5-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 2-megapixel front sensor, though the exact chipset powering it has yet to be specified by either Verizon or Samsung. Being a Galaxy-branded device, the tablet supports the Galaxy Essentials Android app which can provide you with a broad range of useful functionalities, including a versatile Kids Mode that Samsung just recently revised with some major additions. Like most other tablets in this price range, the Galaxy Tab E comes with a pre-installed Nano-SIM (4FF) card from Verizon.
