HQ pics of the S Pen-equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) surface online

Although the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) was launched only a few months ago, it looks like Samsung is getting close to launching a new, S Pen-equipped version of the slab. Last week, a leaked user manual indicated that a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) version with S Pen support is in the works. Today, the fellows over at Sammobile posted a few leaked high-resolution press photos of the slab, all but confirming the tablet's existence.

Allegedly, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) with S Pen will come with the same hardware stylus and the same software features as the Galaxy Note 7's S Pen. As such, expected features include the quick translation feature, the screen off memo functionality, as well as the new Samsung Notes app that debuted on the Galaxy Note 7.

According to insider sources quoted in today's report, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen will be nearly identical to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016). As you can see from the leaked photos below, the slab maintains the design and the build of its penless older sibling. On the inside, the hardware components are said to be consistent as well, which means that we're expecting to see an Exynos 78780 chipset with a 1.6GHz octa-core processor running the show. Other rumored specs include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal storage size, as well as a 7,300mAh battery.

In the camera department, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) with S Pen is expected to feature a 2MP selfie shooter and an 8MP primary camera. That's far from an impressive camera setup, but this is, after all, a tablet. 

At this point, we don't have too many details on pricing or release date. With IFA 2016 currently underway, however, it wouldn't be unthinkable for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) with S Pen as early as this week.

In the past, Samsung has limited its S Pen availability to Galaxy Note phablets and tablets. What do you guys think, is it time for the S Pen to transition to Samsung devices outside of the Note line-up?

For a good tablet experience my windows tablet need to cost >$400, super light like >700g come with at least a core m processor, 4GB Ram and 64GB ROM, and can make phone call so I don't have to carry two devices. Any such windows tablet around? None!? I am pretty sure the above Android Tablet could fit the bill. I just need to learn new way to do my stuff.
