An 8 inch model will be available May 1st for $230, while 9.7 inch models will start at $300. For the most part the tablets have pretty basic features, but there’s one model that does stand out a bit: there’s a $350 model that comes with Samsung’s S-Pen.
That’s Samsung’s name for the pressure-sensitive digital pen that typically comes only with Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of smartphones and tablets. The Galaxy Tab A will be one of the most affordable tablets with an S-Pen when it launches May 17th.
All of the tablets features 1024 x 768 pixel displays, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processors, 1.5GB of RAM, 16Gb to 32GB of storage, and microSD card slots.
They have 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
The 8 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A hass a 4200 mAh battery. 9.7 inch models have 6000 mAh batteries.
