If there’s one tablet that we’ve seen a lot lately thanks to leaks, that’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017). The device gets a new leak today, but not one involving specs, but rather its official name. Turns out it’s going to be Galaxy Tab A2 S.
The info comes from reputed tipster Roland Quandt and he name checked the codename versions of the device, as SM-T380 and SM-T385. All the classic leaks of the machine have happened, including benchmarks, TENAA and WiFi Alliance certifications. The user manual of the slate even leaked online, revealing small tidbits like the presence of a GPS and nano SIM card slot, as well as Bixby.
We don’t have a price yet, but seeing how the specs are rather modest (8 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display and such), it should be on the low side. A 1.4 GHz quad core CPU is in the mix, plus 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. There’s also an 8 megapixel main camera and front 5 MP shooter. The device should run Android Nougat from the get go and it’ll have a 5000 mAh battery.
There have been other leaks showing 32 GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM, so nothing’s 100% sure right now. An IFA unveiling is likely.
