Samsung appears to be working on a new flagship tablet, from results that have recent appeared on Geekbench. With model number SM-T865, this new tablet scored a single-core score of 3506, and a multi-core score of 9788.
According to GizChina, this new tablet features a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM and will launch with Android 9 Pie. The base frequency of the chipset is 1.78GHz, but it can peak at 2.84GHz, making it suitably fast.
What else can we glean from this result? Not an awful lot, but it seems this tablet will be the successor to the current-generation Samsung Tab S4. A slightly older device, it runs the Snapdragon 835 with 4GB RAM, and we’re rapidly approaching the time of year (late Winter) where Samsung announces new tablets, just ahead of the new Note line.
The Tab S4 still retails for around $1000 (or more for the 4G model), and so with a significant specification boost, it’s likely this new tablet – when it eventually arrives – isn’t going to be cheap.
