Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) just got certified by the FCC and it comes with a 4980 mAh battery inside. The FCC approval means it’s pretty close to launch time. The product actually feels familiar, since it was already certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission, in two versions: SM-T290 and SM-T295.

The Slate is expected to be a portrait-oriented machine with a 7 inch or 8 inch diagonal. We only have a diagram from the FCC, showing us the camera positioning and some of the design traits. It’s not very clear if the device will sport a metal construction, like the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) or not. A polycarbonate chassis seems more likely though.

Aside from the design, we also found out the battery capacity, 4980 mAh. Just as a comparison, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) packs a 6150 mAh battery. The source mentions a 7 inch panel, which is probably closer to a HD rather than a Full HD resolution. The product had an alleged specs list leaked online via the GeekBench benchmark.

That one included a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, clocked at 2 GHz and also 2 GB of RAM. Expect Android 9 Pie to be the OS here, as shown by the GeekBench listing as well. If this is priced above $150, it’s not worth it.
