In the market for a new tablet? What about one that utilizes Samsung’s handy S Pen? If so, you’ll be happy to hear Samsung is bringing its Galaxy Tab A 10.1 to the US.

The Galaxy Tab A first saw its launch in South Korea back in September of this year and has now made its way to the US. The big standout feature for the new Galaxy Tab A is the inclusion of an S Pen, as found in the popular Note range by Samsung. The inclusion of the Stylus also brings a number of new features including Samsung Notes, which combines Samsung’s portfolio of writing apps, such as Action Memo, S Note and Scrapbook.

The Galaxy Tab A features a WUXGA 1920 x 1200 display that Samsung claims is 1.7 times denser than its predecessor. You’ll also get an anti-glare feature and a blue light filter to reduce eye strain.

Powered by a 1.6GHz Octa-Core Exynos 7870 processor, the Galaxy Tab A has 3GB of RAM and a 7,300 mAh battery, which Samsung says will last 14 hours of use on a single charge. There’s also an LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab A for those that require connectivity on the move. It will come running Android Marshmallow 6.0 and also has expandable storage up to 256GB to compliment the 16GB of onboard space.
