Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus (with S Pen) and Tab A specs revealed

Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus (with S Pen) and Tab A specs revealed
It's been a while since we last saw a new Samsung tablet. Fret not, as Samsung is reportedly getting ready to introduce various new slates this year. Yesterday, we told you that Samsung trademarked the names Galaxy Tab A, Tab E, and Tab J, and now we have details on the Tab A series.

According to Sam Mobile, Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus slates are coming soon, both having 8-inch, and 9.7-inch versions, with, and without LTE connectivity. Interestingly, it's said that the Tab A Plus will be Samsung's first non-Note device to feature an S Pen stylus. But that doesn't mean it's going to be a high-end tablet.

Reportedly, both the Tab A and Tab A Plus will have screens with 1024 x 768 pixels (and 4:3 aspect ratios). Other common features should include Snapdragon 410 processors, 5MP rear cameras, 2 MP front-facing cameras, 16 GB of internal memory, and 7.4mm-thin bodies. While the Galaxy Tab A will have 1.5 GB of RAM, the Tab A Plus should come with 2 GB (this, and the fact that the Plus variant has an S Pen, are the only major differences between the slates). The 8-inch Tab A and Tab A Plus will have 4000 mAh batteries, while the 9.7-inch models should pack 6000 mAh batteries.

Given their low-resolution displays and mid-range features, we're not expecting the Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus to cost much. But let's better wait for Samsung to announce them, shall we?

P.S.: Pictured above is last year's Galaxy Tab S 10.5.

They are for bundling purpose. Buy a Sammy TV, get one for FREE.

too "many" products? If these items are replacing older items, then they still have less products. This is a 2015 product, which means the old 2014 ones aren't being made this year. Also, even though the Ford F150 is one truck, it comes in over 20 different trim levels. Is that to much product using your words?

Your English is too bad. "Product" is countable and you yourself add "s" in the end of the word. It should have been "Too Many Products" instead.

Maybe English is not their first language...

So if the tablet comes with an S-Pen that doesn't mean its going to be a high end tablet? So, why would Samsung spend money to license WACOM and put it in a low end product? Can you show me a low end product from Samsung with WACOM inside that isn't a premium tablet? Because the Tab S is a premium tablet and it doesn't have an S-Pen. So I would say, since its called the Tab Plus, that means this tab will be better than a standard Tab, as the Tab S is to the Tab already. I would say, since yes it could have an S-Pen, it would be an option that is just below the Note.

since it's not a Note, it might be a C-Pen stylus, not S-Pen stylus.

Why not just call it the Galaxy Note 10.1 2015 Edition to avoid too many models? Gosh, Samsung decisions sometimes confuse me.

Look at screen resolution. Not enough to be Notes.

Question is why release a low end when they could release a Note 10.1 2015 Edition and make the 2014 Edition (which is in dire need of a refresh btw) a low end? Even I can make better decisions than this current Samsung.

Emphasis on "this current Samsung". They used to be good at what they do but they're just making bad decisions by the day nowadays.

Please Samsung refresh the Galaxy Note 8.0 it's already been two years. Been waiting for a new version for a long time now and I know I'm not alone. Snapdragon 810 on board please.

They should release the successor of tab S and note 10.1 with metal unibody, a slimmed down touchwiz and a powerful exynos chip instead of these

Even Low-Spec'd Sammy Phones and Tablets ae expensive. So don't expect that this one will cost a few bucks. This will be terribly expensive.

Typing this on the note 8. Would very much like to see a newer version of this. It has been a great tablet.

Will Samsung ever learn the "less is better" concept...? Sighs

Again low internal memory. At least should have a option of model with more internal memory. This is another issue that Samsung needs to address 32gb needs to be the standard with 64gb available with reasonable price difference.
