Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) now official; 7-inch slate appears on Samsung's website

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) now official; 7-inch slate appears on Samsung's website
A listing on Samsung's own website indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) is now official. This is a 7-inch variant of the tablet, which was leaked just before MWC last month. It also is a sequel to last year's Galaxy Tab A line, which featured both an 8-inch and 9.7-inch model. Pricing wasn't listed on Samsung's website, although some online retailers have it listed for the equivalent of $188 USD. That's for the Wi-Fi only edition. The version of the slate with both Wi-Fi and 4G LTE support will supposedly retail for the equivalent of $245 USD.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) features a 7-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 800 x 1280 (WXGA). The Exynos 3475 SoC is under the hood containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 1.5GB of RAM is on board, along with 8GB of native storage. A 200GB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring additional memory. On the back of the slate is a 5MP camera, with a 2MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. Providing up to 9 hours of streaming video and 100 hours of streaming music is a 4000mAh battery.

With Android 5.1 pre-installed, the Galaxy Tab A (2016) will measures 8.7mm thick, and tips the scales at 283 grams. It will offer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. No S Pen is expected for this model, and while we expect it to be available for emerging markets, it is not clear if it will be sold in the U.S. It does come with Kids Mode, and will be offered in Black and White. No launch date was listed on the website.
