It was reported last month that Samsung is working on a couple of new tablet lineups which will be released later this year. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus are believed to be among the upcoming tablets and their purported specifications have been leaked online. Both are said to be mid-range tablets with the Galaxy Tab A Plus being Samsung’s first tablet outside of the Note series to come with the S Pen.
Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus both will have 8-inch and 9.7-inch models. The smaller Tab A will have the same specifications as the smaller Tab A Plus, same goes with the larger Tab A and Tab A Plus.
You might be wondering about the difference between these two tablets. For starters the Galaxy Tab A Plus is said to come with the S Pen and it may have 2GB of RAM as opposed to 1.5GB on the Tab A.
The 8-inch models of these tablets are said to come with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quadcore processor, 1,024×768 pixel resolution display with 4:3 aspect ratio, 2 megapixel front and 5 megapixel rear camera, 16GB onboard storage and a 4,200mAh battery.
9.7-inch models will have more or less the same specifications with the exception of a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm APQ8016 processor and 6,000mAh battery.
LTE and Wi-Fi only variants might be offered and the tablets are going to be just 7.4mm thin. No word as yet on when Samsung plans on announcing these new tablets.
