Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen US release date confirmed

Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen about a month ago in South Korea. It’s basically the same as the existing Galaxy Tab A, only that this tablet comes with the S Pen, it’s the same S Pen that Samsung debuted with the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7.┬áSamsung today confirmed the US release details for this tablet – called Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen in the States – it’s going to be available later this week.

This tablet features a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution 10.1-inch display, it has a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor under the hood coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage expandable via microSD card. Aside from an 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front camera, the tablet runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and comes with a 7,300mAh battery. The S Pen brings all of the new software features that debuted with the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung is only launching the Wi-Fi variant of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen in the United States, it’s unclear whether a cellular version will be offered at some point in the future. The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 with S Pen costs $349.99 and will be released in the United States on October 28.

Stop releasing 16 GB 64 GB should be standard

It is a ridiculous tablet especially at that price. 16GB of Storage. I’m forever struggling to download catch-up TV on my Tab S’ 16GB internal memory. It’s not good for a tablet

If it has a physical home and capacitive buttons I’ll pass.
It ridiculous to have those in a tablet in 2016.

I completely disagree with you.
I think it is much nicer to have these buttons. In some apps and games u need to swipe the bottom of the screen to reach android software buttons and in other apps these buttons take small portion of the screen which I dont like it.
I think if there is a bezel in bottom of the phone or tablet, why not using that to put android buttons with physical home button.

What’s ridiculous is how poor Android’s software-based navigation is (particularly on a tablet) and the amount of screen state it wastes.
