A day after the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets were unveiled and announced for the first time, Samsung came up with the clever idea of actually releasing a press release too, in Dutch nonetheless.
And, in addition to making sure the Samsung Galaxy Tab A were announced, Samsung also admitted to the extension of the Tab A line with two tablets featuring the S Pen digitizer too. These tablets are expected to be called Samsung Galaxy Tab A Plus, based on the leaks from early February.
The specifications for the S Pen tablets are the same as those on the non-digitizer Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets, meaning 9.7 or 8.0-inch displays with 1024 x 768 resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio, a 1.2G Hz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, a 2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, and Android 5.0.2.
Whereas the Galaxy Tab A tablets will be released in Russia in April, they won’t hit the stores until May in the Netherlands. The price begins at €299 for the 16GB model or €369 for the 4G LTE model, while the Galaxy Tab A Plus with S-Pen will start at €349.
