Samsung outs Galaxy Tab A 2016 Edition

World leading smartphone producers, Samsung, have quietly unveiled the 2016 edition of the Galaxy Tab A which was originally launched last year.

The 2016 edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A is now listed on the firm’s Dutch site with pricing and availability details absent.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2015 edition had both 7-inch and 8-inch variants as well as their Wi-Fi and LTE-enabled models. It’s expected that more models of the 2016 version of the Galaxy Tab A will be released soon.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2016 edition which was listed is a Wi-Fi only version that features a 7-inch TFT display with a screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels.

The tablet also runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, measures 186.9×108.8×8.7mm and weighs 283 grams.

Under the hood, the Android tablet is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor clubbed with 1.5GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2016 also packs an average 8GB of inbuilt storage for storing files and applications. This memory can however be expanded via a microSD card up to 200GB if more space is needed.

The tablet sports a 5 megapixel rear camera and there’s also a 2 megapixel front camera for taking selfies and making video calls. The rear camera is touted to be able to record videos at HD resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 30 fps.

Connectivity options on the Galaxy Tab A 2016 edition include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Glonass, and Micro-USB.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) will also come with Kids Mode and is backed by a powerful 4000mAh battery. Samsung however disappointingly noted that there is no S Pen support for the tablet.

The official listing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) comes few days after the Samsung Galaxy J1 mini and Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016) were also listed by the firm without any details on availability and pricing.
