Samsung launches the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen in South Korea

The Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus were officially announced a month ago and have been slowly making their way to various markets since then. Today, Samsung has launched the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen in South Korea.

Only the 9.7-inch variant has been announced, though it will be available in both Wi-Fi and LTE variants. The tablet comes with a 1024×768 pixels display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB of expandable internal storage, and a 6,000 mAh battery. Android 5.0 Lollipop powers the software, and like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, it comes with a couple of Microsoft apps preloaded, which the introduction video showcases quite a few times in its near 2-minute run time.

The Galaxy Tab A with S Pen will be priced at 399,000 won (roughly $370) and 484,000 (roughly $450) won for the Wi-Fi and LTE models respectively. An actual availability date hasn’t been announced yet, but consumers should be able to buy the tablet soon after the non-S Pen variant goes on sale in mid-May.
