The Tab A 10.1” delivers high performance with all-day battery life and upgradeable storage options.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1” features a Full HD display that brings content to life when watching movies or browsing online. Users have 13 hours of internet usage off of a single charge*, combined with an Octa-core processor allowing users to accomplish everything they need.

“At Samsung, we are always listening to consumer feedback and recognize the need for creating devices and services that fit diverse needs,” said Gary Riding, senior vice president, Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “Combining mobility with performance to deliver incredible entertainment experiences, or simply providing you with the means to catch up on the latest news, the Tab A 10.1” does just that – allowing you to get the most out of what you need throughout your day.”

The service allows kids to experience their favorite characters, games and content in a parental-controlled environment where parents can identify specific subject areas for their child to focus and control the amount of time they are using the app.
