The leaked sketches show a 10-inch slate with a stylus, while the features revealed include a Samsung Exynos 7870 processor and a microSD slot.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 has no S Pen support, but it looks like its successor will solve that problem. Although nothing is official yet, a leaked user manual reveals enough details about a device codenamed Samsung SM-P580. The manual is only available in Korean at this time, but since it appeared online, the launch of the product is probably pretty close.

According to the information available in the manual mentioned above, the Samsung SM-P580 is powered by a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 7870 octa-core processor, has a 10.1-inch multitouch display with 1,920X1,200 pixels and S Pen support, GPS, a microSD slot. The slate also comes with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.2. Its dimensions are 10X6.5X0.32 inches. At last, the operating system would be Android with TouchWiz on top, most likely Marshmallow.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 that is currently available on the market retails for around $300 USD but has no S Pen support. Considering this, it would not be a surprise to see the Samsung SM-P580 launch for a higher price tag. We will get back to it as soon as it becomes official, 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.
