A few days ago we saw what looked like the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) getting Bluetooth SIG certified and now it’s time for its WiFi certification. The device is clearly getting closer and closer to debut time and we have the details below.
Sadly, all we have is bits and pieces, without clear info on the specs, the design or the special features. What we know for sure is that it comes with Android 8.1 Oreo on board and that it will have a 10.1 inch screen. It’s very likely a Full HD screen, since the public won’t be happy with merely HD. This is a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 model, since it bears the codename SM-T595.
The 2016 model came with the model numbers SM-T580 and SM-T585 for the WiFi and LTE versions. If Samsung sticks to the pattern, then the newcomer will also get a SM-T595 version, which is the LTE variant of the 2018 unit. A so called “Galaxy Tab A2 XL” also appears in the documents, so we may end up with more than one model. Since we have no specs, we may as well speculate starting from the predecessor.
The 2016 model had 3 GB of RAM, an Exynos 7870 Octa CPU, a 10.1 inch Full HD screen and a pretty generous 7300 mAh battery. It also had 16 or 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. I expect maybe 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage by default, a microSD card and maybe a camera update from 8 MP to 13 MP.
