Just when we all thought Android tablets were dead Samsung are coming back for more, and why wouldn’t they: When it comes to a non-iOS tablet Samsung is about the only choice. Today a Samsung tablet has surfaced on Geekbench giving a few small details about the upcoming device.

The Geekbench result shows that the new device, the SM-T515, will be running the Exynos 7885 processor, will be supported by just 2GB of RAM and will arrive running Android 9.0 Pie. Samsung’s One UI is set to sit atop Android Pie given One UI has arrived with Android 9 on every other one of their devices. The Exynos 7885 processor is the same processor found in the mid-range Galaxy A8 (2018) and A7 (2017) Samsung phones.

The benchmark result for the SM-T515 suggests that it is a mid-range device slotting in between their A series tablets and their upper end tablet series.

This is not the only tablet that Samsung are rumoured to release in the coming months with reports coming in that they are set to release at a minimum four tablets. The fours tablets known about have the model numbers SM-P200, SM-P205, SM-T720, and SM-T725. The first two are expected to be part of the Galaxy A tablet series with one having a 7 inch display and the other a 10.5 inch display.

With Chrome tablets lacking polish it seems that Android tablets will be and need to be around for a bit longer. With very few other companies working on decent Android tablets it is good to see one manufacturer keeping that segment of the market alive.

Would you buy an Android tablet in 2019?

The 2018 Tab A 10.5 has 3GB, D4 has 4GB, how is this reported device “mid-range”? 2GB would make it low end. I halve an S4 (256GB) and Note 5 (512GB). The phone has 6GB of RAM. Both run silky smooth, but the Note 9 does better in the background operation department with its higher spec innards. Samsung need to stop putting “last years” (or in this case, last couple of years) processors in tablets. Premium devices need premium components. The S4 is great, but how much better would it be if it had the same processor/RAM combo of the… Read more »

The A series devices are not premium, so they won’t get the latest and greatest CPU and GPU.
The A series, however, is supposed to be mid range, and as you note, in 2019, 2Gb RAM is below mid range. The problem is coming up with something that IS mid range and doesn’t risk cannibalising sales of the premium S series devices. Samsung got the balance correct in 2016 with the A series 10.1 T580 and P585. Samsung has not got the balance correct with these new announced devices.

I wish these companies that make hardware would survey “we the customers” in what we expect In our hardware . Some of the lower tier hardware is lower than i would buy , and I’m sure many others too. 2 GB of ram doesn’t cut the mustard imo even for a base model . As a consumer for me anyway , even in the cheap stuff , i expect a little better than just adequate . If you look in some hi fi stores you can still find A tablets on the table running marshmallow with 2gb of ram(and that… Read more »

The S4 tablet is really fast and smooth with 4gig RAM. But my previous tablet with 2gig was barely useable

2Gb RAM on a 2019 tablet.
That is NOT mid range.
For 2019, that is lousy bargain basement entry range.
