Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0

Samsung might be releasing a new tablet from its Galaxy Tab A lineup soon. As famous leaker Roland Quandt found out a new tablet with the product number Samsung SM-T385 appeared in the database of GFXBench. It’s very likely that it’ll be called Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017). Thanks to the database entry we know all of the specifications already.

It’s very likely that Samsung will release an updated version of the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 as well. But will they release a new Galaxy Tab A 7.0 with an 8 inch version on the way? I have no idea. While the 7 inch tablet was launched very silently in Europe and didn’t make it into any bestseller lists, it became very popular in some Asian countries like Thailand and India.

Galaxy Tab A 8.0 Specs

According to the leak the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 will be a solid middle class tablet. It comes with an 8 inch display that has an hd resolution at 1280 x 800. Inside runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor which is a chipset found in a lot of cheaper smartphones. It’s a quad core SoC with four cores clocked at up to 1.4GHz.

The at GFXBench leaked SM-T385 is the LTE 4G version. Samsung might put a different chip into the WiFi only model. We’re also getting 2GB of memory and an internal storage with a capacity of 16GB. That’s a big step up from the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 which was launched with 8GB only.

Other features include an 8 megapixel camera on the back as well as a front facing camera with a resolution of 5 megapixel. Both are capable of shooting video at 1080p. Next to optional 4G the tablet will support Bluetooth and GPS.

Android 7.0 Nougat

The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 will be the first cheap tablet to run Android 7.0 Nougat. As usual it’s very likely that they’ll put their TouchWiz UI on top of it. That’s okay because I quite like what they did with their interface in the last couple of years.

It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) will be a pretty nice tablet. Usually they start at a pretty high price – which falls very quickly though. We don’t know the final name for sure though. Until the final announcement you might want to call it by its stylish product number SM-T385
