As per a SamMobile report, the Galaxy Tab A lineup will be successors of the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 that were also given similar model names.

The report goes on stating that both the tablets will be available in two sizes 8-inch and 9.7-inch respectively.

The smaller variant is said to feature a 4,200 mAh battery, whereas the larger one will be incorporated with a 6,000 mAh battery.

In terms of connectivity, both the tabs will come in LTE and Wi-Fi only variants. The tablets will be slim measuring just 7.4mm. For now, there is no information on when these tablets will be going official or what it could be their pricing. We need to wait to know more about these slates.
