Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 is one of the upcoming Samsung devices expected to arrive over the next period, with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. This will be a more midrange device, unlike the high end Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and after a series of leaks over the past days, today we learn more about its smarts.
The device will have a Bixby button and access to Bixby features and services it seems. Samsung is also preparing the Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 and the Galaxy Tab A2 10.5, aka the Tab A2 XL. Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 may end up being the first Samsung tablet with a Bixby button. Hints were already present, like the fact that the last year Samsung Galaxy Tab A had Bixby Home in the mix, but it didn’t have Voice or Vision functionality.
According to the folks of XDA, firmware for the Galaxy Tab A2 XL mentions a “wink_key”, which refers to the Bixby button on the Galaxy S8, Note 8 and Galaxy S9. It’s not very likely that this model will get Bixby Vision of the other cool features, but we expect the Galaxy Tab S4 to get them all. There’s no trace of fingerprint scanner here, but it could be integrated via a Power button on the side, apparently.
Other specs expected for this tablet are a Snapdragon 450 processor, a 10.5 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel screen and an USB Type-C port. The rest remains a mystery, but I expect something like 32 GB of storage maybe 64 GB, 2 or 3 GB of RAM, maybe even 4 GB. The metal body and generous battery are a given, judging by the predecessor.
