Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus: technical characteristics of the next Samsung tablets


Samsung is working well and truly on a new range of tablets, precisely an overhaul of the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note. If until now the extent of our knowledge of these four new devices were limited to the screen ratio and type of the embedded processor, SamMobile unveiled the technical characteristics of the Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus 8 and 9.7 inches.

Although the next four tablets of Samsung are known to be mid-range devices, their specs are higher than what is dedicated to the Tab 4. While the Galaxy Tab A 8 and 9.7 will succeed the Tab 4, the Galaxy Tab A Plus will takes over the “Note” brand.

Thus, the two main differences will be the presence of a S-Pen stylus and 2GB of RAM for the Galaxy Tab A Plus 8 and 9.7, while Galaxy Tab A 8 and 9.7 will only offer 1.5 GB RAM.

In terms of technical features, the two 8 inches tablets will be equipped with a 1024 × 768 pixels 4:3 ratio screen like in the iPad or the Nexus 9. We also find a 64 Bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz, 16 GB of internal storage, two cameras of 5 and 2 megapixels and a battery of 4200 mAh.

The two 9.7 inch tablets offer substantially the same technical characteristics but with a battery of 6000 mAh. The report also mentions a Qualcomm APQ8016 processor instead of the S410 on both large format tablets.

Each of the four devices propose a thickness of 7.4 mm and would decline in both WiFi and LTE versions. Until now, nothing really surprising. Remains to be determined whether the fact that these two tabs are called with the letter A because of a similar design with the Galaxy A smartphones.
