Although the new 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A has been around for a few weeks, the variant with S Pen is only available in Korea for the time being, with more markets expected to follow soon.

Although Samsung introduced the new Galaxy Tab A tablets earlier this summer, they are already updating these slates by adding the same S Pen that has been launched next to the Galaxy Note 7 phablet. Since the tablet without S Pen is already available for purchase in the US, it is only a matter of time until this updated slate goes outside South Korea as well.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen is powered by a Samsung SoC, namely the octa-core Exynos 7870 Octa. This chip is accompanied by 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support. The front camera offers 2 MP, while the tablet has an 8 MP image snapper on the back. The 7,300 mAh battery provides up to 14 hours of autonomy, according to Samsung.

The S Pen-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) comes loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a price tag around $440 USD in South Korea. There is no word out on its pricing and availability for other markets yet, but this information should surface soon, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
