There was a time Samsung only included its pressure-sensitive active pen with tablets and phones in its Note series, but the company has now released in the U.S. a Galaxy Tab A 10.1 model bundled with an S Pen.

Samsung created a suite of note-taking and drawing software for use with the S Pen, and these come pre-loaded on this mid-range Android tablet. There’s a slot built into this computer to hold the pen.

Hardware Specs

The Tab A 10.1 has a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 touchscreen, giving it a decent pixel density of 224 ppi.

It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow on a 1.6 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor. This model is already available in Asia, but the U.S. version will come with 3GB of RAM. There’ll also be 16GB of storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 256GB of additional capacity.

Other features of this Galaxy Tab include an 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, and a 7300 mAh battery, which Samsung says is good for up to 13 hours of video playback. All this goes into a tablet that weighs 1.2 lbs.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 was released in the U.S. Today, and is priced at $349.99. It will probably replace the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 in this company’s product lineup.

    Wow, hat looks a nice device. The only thing wrong with Samsung’s current 9.7 inch Tab A is the ridiculously low screen resolution, but this model fixes that. Now, I personally don’t have much user for a pen, hardly use the s-pen in my Galaxy Note but my kids love it when paired with a nice drawing app.
