New Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets demoed in Russia
Happy new Samsung tablets day! Although the Korean chaebol isn't churning out Galaxy Tabs quite like it used to, it did take the time to showcase the brand new Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus tablets in Russia. They belong to the A-series of "mid-range-premium-built" devices which you may know from the Samsung Galaxy A3, A5, and A7 smartphones. Thus, the Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus sport slim chassis 0.29in (7.5mm), and although we can't discern surely from photos alone, they appear to have the nice polished aluminum build too! Here's how they fare in terms of specs.

The Galaxy Tab A has Wi-Fi/Cellular variants and it has an 8-inch 1024x768 display (4:3 ratio), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (but other sources cite an "unknown Cortex-A53 CPU" as the player, so the possibility for Samsung silicon stays), 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP main camera (there's a cam on the front too), and a 4200mAh battery.

The Galaxy Tab A Plus, which too has Wi-Fi and Cellular variants, has a 9.7-inch 1024x768 display (4:3 ratio), a Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP main camera (there's one on the front too), a 6000mAh battery, and it includes an S-Pen stlyus with the related functionality.

The tablets could show up on the market in May, with price tags expected to be similar to the current Galaxy Tab 4 tablets (about $199 - $349). Hopefully, Samsung will follow up with an official announcement.
