But what’s inside matters the most and theÂ Galaxy Tab A 10.1 runs on an in-house made Exynos 7870 chipset featuring an octa core architecture with eight Cortex A-53 CPUs, together with two gigabytes of RAM and the aforementioned 16 gigabytes of internal storage capacity. Don’t worry, you can always expand your storage via micro SD cards up to 200 GB. The tablet also comes with 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels main unit and a secondary 2 MP for video-calls/selfies, both of them being capable of full HD video recording. The battery has a beefy 7300 mAh capacity while the tablet measuresÂ 254.2 x 8.2 millimeters and weighs 525 grams.
