Samsung was rumoured to be cooking up a version of the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen compatibility back in February. It looks like the rumours were true, as the tablet has just been unveiled by Samsung France.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus is a mid-range tablet, making it the first mid-range tablet made by Samsung to support the S Pen, which was previously reserved for the high-end Galaxy Note series. It sports a 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 768 x 1024 pixels at a 4:3 aspect ratio, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a Ziilabs ZMS-08 quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, and a 6,000 mAh battery. It measures 7.5 mm-thin. The new tablet runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
In France, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus will set interested parties back €339 (around £241). It is yet to be determined if the tablet will be available in the UK.
