Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus 9.7 have leaked, thanks to the sources of Sammobile.
And this tablet have the potential to become a new bestseller. At 9.7 inches it replaces the 10.1-inch display and also introduces the 4:3 aspect ratio, a move we have seen pulled by several tablet manufacturers at the start of the new year, and it’s something we’ll only see more of throughout 2015.
The screen has a low resolution at 1024 x 768, but we’ll have to wait and see how much this bothers people. Resolution isn’t everything when it comes to crispness, as we have seen with the high-quality low-resolution displays of Samsung and Sony over the years, or with the failed high resolution displays from Toshiba in 2013.
In addition to the display properties, the other thing that have the potential to drive sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus 9.7 is the integrated S Pen stylus. That put’s it into Samsung Galaxy Note league.
The remaining specs are a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm APQ8016 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 6000 mAh battery, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, optional 4G LTE, and a thickness of 7.4mm.
It will be exciting to see how Samsung plans to let these S Pen tablets compliment their high-end Galaxy Note range – the other Android tablets to feature the S Pen, along with their Windows 8.1 tablet Samsung Ativ Tab 3.
