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.
Codrut Nistor - Senior Tech Writer - 6008 articles published on Notebookcheck since 2013
In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
