Samsung has finally listed the Galaxy Tab A (2016) SM-T280 on their official website of Germany. Last week we had exclusively reported about the 7-inch Galaxy Tab A (2016) listing on one of the Poland’s online store.

The Wi-Fi only variant of Galaxy Tab A (2016) is priced at EUR 169 and comes in White and Black color options as we mentioned previously.
It comes with a 7-inch WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) TFT display and comes powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor.
