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.

It looks cheaper than its smartphone counterpart, and why don't Samsung put a decent specs like FHD display, at least SD 625 chipset, and16gb storage. A series are meant for upper-midrange, not an entry-level like this one, it should be the E series.

Having bough a tablet with a 7'' screen with the same resolution, I think this is good enough for reading or whatever. It's not amazing, but it's certainly good enough. (...though it is asking for its premium Samsung price..) Rule of thumb: Anything less than 210ppi is s**te. Anything above is good enough and won't warrant complaints from most users.

My Note Pro (Lollypop ) lags ... its screen flickering is annoying ...sometimes can't detect sim ... I tried tab S2 (9.7 inch) at a Samsung Store and it lags like a hell. Are there any such issues in Nexus 9? Android tablet space is suffering.
