Samsung may have already launched the Galaxy Tab A model for 2016, but now is the turn for it to launch the model with S-Pen functionality. The new Galaxy Tab A (2016) has just gained a feature which was exclusively limited to the premium Note series.
The tablet comes with a 10.1-inch display on the front with Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. The tablet has an 8.2mm waistline and tips the scales at 558 grams.
Under the hood, you get a 1.6 Ghz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor with 3 GB worth RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, which is also expandable by up to 256 GB via a microSD card. There are a duo of 8 and 2 MP cameras on the back and front, respectively. The rear camera unit is also accompanied by an LED flash.
The Galaxy Tab A (2016) runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with TouchWiz UI optimisations. Standard connectivity options are topped off by optional 4G LTE. The battery capacity is set at 7300 mAh, which is said to last for up to 14 hours.
Of course, the biggest differentiating factor here is the addition of the new S-Pen, which brings all the software goodness found in the Note 7.
The tablet is priced at $435 in South Korea for the LTE variant and could be launched elsewhere in the near future. Other variants without LTE connectivity could come in at slightly lesser prices.
