The new tablet sports a 9.7 inch display with an unimpressive 768 x 1024 pixel resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio, and fortunately runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. According to Samsung, the Galaxy Tab A is made for people who want to read ebooks, browse the web, and use email on their slate. Thus, we're not dealing with a top-of-the-line device here. The Galaxy Tab A is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, further featuring 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 6000 mAh battery. The tablet has a 2 MP camera on the front, and a 5 MP one on the back.
The Galaxy Tab A Wi-Fi will have a suggested retail price of €299, while the Galaxy Tab A LTE (which features 2 GB of RAM, not 1.5 GB) will cost €349. Both will be available in black and white in Germany.
Update: A Galaxy Tab A with S Pen stylus will also be available in May (at least in the Netherlands), for prices starting at €349 (Wi-Fi version).
Right now, we don't know if Samsung is planning to release its Galaxy Tab A slates in North America, but we'll let you know when we find out.
