Since Samsung didn’t showcase any new tablets at CES 2015, MWC was our only hope to see something new from the South Koreans. Rumors say that they’re working on “multiple new tablet lineups”, in the Galaxy Tab and Note series and today we get proof of that.
Information about the Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus has surfaced online and these are midrange tablets, apparently. The Tab A Plus is the first Samsung tablet that’s not part of a Note series, but will still pack an S Pen stylus in the mix. Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus will be offered in two sizes: 8 inch and 9.7 inch. The smaller unit will offer the same specs as the smaller Galaxy Tab A Plus and the 9.7 inch versions of the two will also share features.
The only difference between the Tab A and the A Plus will be the S Pen, that will be included on the A Plus, as well as the increased quantity of RAM. The Plus models will get 2 GB RAM, whole the regular A units will get 1.5 GB. The 8 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A and A Plus will come with a quad core Snapdragon 410 CPU, clocked at 1.2 GHz, a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, as well as 5 MP main cameras and 2 MP front cameras.
16 GB of storage and 4200 mAh batteries will complete the image. The 9.7 inchers will share most of the specs, but they’ll adopt 6000 mAh batteries and the Qualcomm APQ8016 processor. LTE units will also be offered and waistlines will be slim, at 7.4 mm.
