Samsung Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus specifications spotted in the wild

Samsung launched its last tablet, the Galaxy Tab Active rugged at IFA 2014 and there was a rumour that the company is coming out with Galaxy Tab 5. According to a SamMobile report, the company is coming out with Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus tablets.


Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge at MWC 2015 on March 1. We are seeing leaks everyday along with pricing details. The Galaxy S6 is rumoured to be as thin as the iPhone 6. Although, the focus here is on the latest tablets by the South Korean company.

According to SamMobile, both Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab A Plus will come in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants. The Galaxy Tab A will be featuring a 8-inch display with resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels (4:3 aspect ratio) which will be powered by a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. The tablet will be equipped with a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera. It will have 16 GB internal storage and a 4,200 mAh battery under the hood.

On the other hand, the Galaxy Tab A Plus might be the first tablet to come with the S Pen outside the Note series. It will have more or less the same specifications like the Galaxy Tab A but will feature a 9.7-inch display along with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm APQ8016 processor. It will have a 6,000 mAh battery under the hood. Both the upcoming tablets will be 7.4 mm thick and will include both WiFi-only and 4G LTE-enabled variants. We do not have any information on the pricing but looking at the specifications, it should be mid-range tablets.

Samsung recently announced their revenues and it is not looking good. The company is also preparing to launch both Galaxy A5 and A3 in UK on February 12.
