The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016) is official with much-upgraded specs from its predecessor.
Its 10.1-inch display now has a 1,920×1,200 pixel resolution and the panel is Samsung’s own PLS (Plane to Line Switching), a variation of the popular IPS panels.
On the inside, there is an octa-core 1.6GHz processor although not stated explicitly, its likely to be the Exynos 7870 with 8 Cortex-A53 cores. RAM is still 2GB, and internal storage is 16GB. It’s expandable, and the specs read a 200GB most, but if we were to guess, it will likely take the 256GB microSD card Samsung just outed.
You get a 2MP f/2.2 front camera and an 8MP f/1.9 rear shooter, which you should generally avoid using on a 10-inch device. Both can capture 1080p video. The device measures 155.3 x 254.2 x 8.2mm and weighs 525g. Battery capacity is rated at 7,300mAh.
