In 2015, Samsung quietly shifted gears and launched a new line of midrange but cheap tablets and the Korean company did the same this year when it caught a lot of people off guarding by silently launching a new variant of its Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets.
The company is following up with a release of a new version of the Galaxy Tab A which is going to sport an updated screen size in comparison to the previously launched terminals which both featured 8 and 9.7-inches respectively.
The new handset is dubbed Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 was announced through a press release on the company’s German website. The tablet is expected to be available in the country around the month of June but there is no word yet on the availability of the device in other markets.
It is very likely that the Korean giant is using a the German launch as a testing phase to see how the device holds out against competition before opting to launch it internationally.
The Tab 10.1 features a 10.1-inch WUXGA 1920 x 1200 pixel display and the company’s in-house Exynos 1.6GHz processor including 2GB of RAM.
The tablet also features a 16GB onboard storage but those that need more space can add it via the micro SD card slot that comes with the device.
Both cameras are 8MP with LED flash for the rear shooter and a 2MP selfie snapper and tablet supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS as well as GLONASS. The device will be available in the WiFi Only (priced at €289 or $330) and 3G/4G variants (priced at €349 or $395).
