Samsung has a new 10 inch tablet on the way, and all signs point to it being a lot like one that launched earlier this year… but with one major difference. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 does not work with Samsung’s S-Pen stylus. The upcoming SM-P580/P585 does.

Roland Quandt spotted a user manual for the new tablet on Samsung’s website, and while I can’t read most of the manual (since it’s in Korean), there are drawings that clearly show a pen, and a few specs and other items in English that make it pretty clear that the new tablet is a cousin to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1.


Both tablets feature 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel displays and 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 7870 octa-core processors.

If I’m reading the manual right, the new model features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS< and a microSD card slot. The SM-P580 measures 10″ x 6.5″ x 0.32″.

Unsurprisingly, the tablet runs Android software and features Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface with support for features like multi-window mode and the Samsung Notes app for S-Pen users.

There’s no word on when the new tablet will launch or how much it will cost. But the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 without an S-Pen currently sells for about $300.
