It’s the same slightly larger, beefier 10.1-inch 2016 derivation of the 9.7-inch mid-range Galaxy Tab A released back in the spring of 2015, now including a dedicated slot for a productivity and creativity-enhancing S Pen accessory.

That’s the “new” Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen in a nutshell, and it costs the rough equivalent of $445 (489,000 won) over in Korea. It doesn’t run full Windows 10, and settles for a conventional slate form factor rather than a hip 2-in-1 convertible setup, also sticking to a PLS LCD screen instead of making the jump to an arguably sharper Super AMOLED.

But alongside its bundled-in stylus, the rehashed 10.1-incher carries an extra gig of RAM (for a total of 3), and twice the internal storage of the 16GB variant currently sold stateside for around $270.

As such, don’t be shocked if Samsung ends up charging $450, even $500, on US shores when the Tab A (2016) with S Pen eventually spreads out, LTE connectivity, 1,920 x 1,200 display resolution, octa-core Exynos 7870 processing power, 8/2MP cameras, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 7,300mAh battery and all. Alas, the global expansion timetable, if one exists, remains under wraps.
