Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 fills the S Pen void left by the Note 7

October 28th

Samsung is bringing its Galaxy Tab A 10.1 tablet to the US five months after it was announced back in May. The tablet, which will retail for $349, will ship with an S Pen (hey former Note 7 owners!) and 3GB of RAM — an improvement on the 2GB of RAM the tablet shipped with when it was released overseas. Otherwise the Tab A 10.1 is your run-of-the-mill tablet:

  • WUXGA (1920 x 1200) display
  • Exynos 7870 octa-core processor
  • 16GB storage (up to an additional 256GB with a microSD card)
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera
  • 7,300mAh battery

The Tab A 10.1 won't run the latest version of Android out of the box — it's shipping with Android 6.0 — but hopefully Samsung will give it an update to Nougat in the near future. Samsung says the tablet will be available on its website and from select retailers on October 28th.
