The Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus is a mid-range tablet with S Pen compatibility
Back in February, word got out that Samsung is planning to launch a Galaxy Tab A version with S-Pen compatibility. As it turns out, the rumor was accurate, as it was recently discovered that Samsung has quietly launched the tablet, called the Galaxy Tab A Plus, in France.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus is now the first non-premium device to feature S Pen compatibility. Historically, Samsung launched S Pen smartphones and tablets under the Note branding, but it looks like the manufacturer could be planning to make the S Pen a differentiable feature for its mid-range and entry-level devices as well.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus comes with mediocre specs that include a 9.7-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 768 by 1024 pixels at a 4:3 aspect ratio, and Ziilabs ZMS-08 chipset that integrates a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. In the memory department, the Galaxy Tab A Plus features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of microSD-expandable internal storage. 

There are also a couple of cameras, although their efficiency will probably be somewhat limited by their resolutions, 5MP on the back, and 2MP on the front. All of these specs are powered by a 6,000mAh battery and are all neatly packaged in a body that measures 7.5mm across the waist. The Tab A Plus runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, with Samsung's own TouchWiz UI layered on top.

At the moment, we don't know when or if the Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus will make it to US shores. In France, it is currently going for or €339, which converts to about $370.
