Samsung Is Working On New Tablets According To Zauba Listing

January 31, 2016 - Written By Diego Macias

Tablet sales keep declining, but Samsung recently launch a new tablet that belongs to the entry-level Galaxy Tab E and it was reported that the company might soon launch other small tablets to the series. Now, two more tablets were spotted in India’s import and export site, Zauba, suggesting that Samsung is working in even more tablet offerings. Samsung apparently is sending the tablets to that country so they can be tested and they would get destroyed after the testing period is over. We still don’t know much about the tablets other than their existence, model numbers and the screen size of each one, but we can make a few guesses about them based on that data.

The model number of the first tablet is SM-T719 and its screen measures 8 inches, the second tablet carries the model number SM-T813 and its screen size is 9.7 inches. All of this sounds familiar because the Galaxy Tab S2 series includes two tablets, one with an 8-inch screen and the other one with a 9.7-inch screen. Additionally, the model numbers of the variants of the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 are SM-T710 and SM-715, the model numbers of the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 variants are SM-T810 and SM-T815. The two tablets of the Galaxy Tab S2 series were released in September, so it might be a little early to expect successors to those tablets, but the new tablets could be refreshed models with better specs of the aforementioned ones. The listing includes prices for both tablets, but the prices don’t reflect the final retail price, since these devices were made only for testing purposes. The price of the 8-inch tablet is an equivalent of $204 and the larger model is valued at an equivalent of $255.

Since the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets are flagship devices, they feature a premium build and solid specs. Still, the company could improve some aspects in the new tablets, perhaps including a more powerful processor, more RAM or they could integrate a larger capacity battery. The launch date for the tablet remains a mystery, but given that the tablets are already built and tested, it might not take too long before they are officially unveiled.
