Samsung has presented the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2016 in Germany. As the name suggests, the tablet has a 10.1″ screen, while its predecessor has a 9.7″ screen. The Tab A has a metal housing.
The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2016 joins the 7″ version that Samsung announced earlier this year. The 10.1″ version has a screen with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. Not only is that a lot higher than the 1024×768 pixels of last year’s Tab A 9.7, but the screen ratio is also different, namely 16:10 on the new tablet against 4:3 on the previous one.
The new tablet runs on an undisclosed octacore processor with a maximum clock speed of 1.6GHz. This presumably concerns the Exynos 7880. That soc has an ARM Mali T830 GPU, while the tablet, according to Samsung, has 2GB of memory. The expandable storage has a capacity of 16 GB, of which the user can fill 9.2 GB. The 25×15.5cm tablet has a 7300mAh battery.
Samsung has put Kid Mode 4.0 on the Android 6.0 tablet, with which eight user profiles can be set. In addition, parents can limit the time children can use the tablet. The Tab A 10.1 2016 will be released at the beginning of June for 289 euros. A variant with 4G costs 349 euros.
