Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2Samsung is getting ready to add a new member to its Galaxy Tab A family of slates in the near future. It will be called Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), and unsurprisingly you’ll see it sporting a 10.1-inch touchscreen.

The Wi-Fi-only iteration of this device will bear the model number SM-T580, while the LTE-capable unit will be the SM-T585. In fact, we’ve seen the T585 in a benchmark back in March, which is how a few of its specs got made public. Now a new leak brings us official renders for the tablet, as well as a full picture of its innards.

The Tab A 10.1 will have 1,920×1,200 resolution, and an IPS panel. It will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7870 chipset, coming with a 1.6 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. This will be aided by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in (yet expandable) storage. There’s an 8 MP camera on the back, and a 2 MP unit on the front. All the usual connectivity options are there, of course, and the T585 supports 300Mbps LTE.

The tablet has a 7,300 mAh battery and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It’s 8.2mm thick and weighs 525g. It has two stereo speakers, but they’re both placed on the same (bottom) side.

In Germany (and, we assume, the rest of the Eurozone countries too), the Wi-Fi-only T580 will be priced at €289. If you want the LTE-capable T585 model you’ll need to shell out €349. The Wi-Fi-only iteration will be in stores in June, while the LTE-enabled one could be out in around a week or so – at least in Europe.
