New Samsung tablet with S Pen support is coming, leaked manual reveals

Samsung appears to be working on a new tablet with S Pen support. The user manual for a yet-unannounced Samsung tablet with model number SM-P580/P585 was spotted on the company's support page, and although the bulk of it is in Korean, it seemingly confirms that it will come with the popular S Pen stylus.

The new slate is shaping up to be very similar in specs to the mid-range Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, which launched earlier this year. Both devices share the same 1920 x 1200 10.1-inch screen and Exynos 7870 octa-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, with the main difference being the S Pen support, which the Galaxy Tab A does have only with its more expensive models (starting at around $350).

There is no info yet on pricing, or when the tablet will launch, but we may find out more about that at IFA next month, which we will be attending and covering.

Would love to see a high end Samsung tablet with S-Penn in tow and current, up to date, specs.

They need a new Note. I still use my Note 10.1 (2012) and still runs very well...

Is it that hard to give a tablet a proper tablet processor like apple does?

That's the question I've been asking for the last couple of years. They keep producing tablets with mediocre processors and then wonder why uptake is so low. Seems like Samsung has totally given up on high-end Android tablets.

You mean the same CPU they use in their phones, but they throw an X behind the number which means nothing? They just beef up the GPU. But what disappointed me was, the iPad Air was a Tri-Core CPU, but in the 9.7" Pro model, it isn't. So why did they drop the cores when the device have the same resolution? Also it doesn't feel pro when it doesn't have any features above the previous model. They just put the improved cameras.

Finally, it it a Note 10.1 (2013) replacement?
