Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) surfaces on Samsung's website ahead of launch

Samsung's Galaxy Tab A (2016) has been tipped for launch sooner or later, but just like the Galaxy S7 Edge, the tablet appeared on Samsung Germany website ahead of its official announcement.

The listing reveals a full list of specifications of Galaxy Tab A, including an HD Display, a Quad-core processor and a microSD slot.

Samsung announces the Galaxy Tab A- here's why it is special

Featuring a 7-inch display, Galaxy Tab A isn't as capable as the Tab S2 but can be a handy multimedia device with a 1.3GHz processor and a 1.5GB RAM. The tablet sports just 8GB of internal storage but there's a microSD slot as well which can accommodate your 128GB microSD cards.  Still running Android 5.1 Lollipop, it will also come with 5MP and 2MP cameras  and will pack an impressive 4,000 mAh battery.

The 2015 edition of Galaxy Tab A was launched in May last year in both Wi-Fi and LTE versions and a third model with an S-Pen with Wi-Fi was also announced later. However, the 2016 version will only come with Wi-Fi but no LTE or S Pen.

Galaxy Tab A is also much smaller this time with a 7-inch display instead of a 9.7-inch one in the previous edition. The RAM remains the same but the storage also got chopped from 16GB to 8GB. Samsung is also retaining the front and rear cameras.

Apart from the basic specifications, we expect Samsung to retain some features of the Galaxy Tab A 2015 like a 4:3 aspect ratio which is much more proportionate, offers more comfortable handling and greater viewing experience in both portrait and landscape orientation than the usual 16:9 ratio, SideSync 3.0 which will enable screens, windows and data of the device to be shared seamlessly between tablet and PC monitor and ability to access and store data in a comprehensive Microsoft suite.
