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.
