A few weeks back, an exclusive report published by the folks over at SamMobile had revealed Samsung is working on several new Android tablets, some of which could be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona next month. One of the upcoming Samsung tablets, bearing the model number SM-T515 has now appeared on the Geekbench benchmark database.
Samsung SM-T515 Will be Powered by an Exynos 7885 SoC
The Samsung SM-T515 Geekbench listing reveals the upcoming tablet will be powered by Samsung’s in-house developed Exynos 7885 octa-core SoC under the hood. Samsung’s Exynos 7885 SoC powers several of the company’s current mid-range Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy A7 (2018) with triple rear cameras. Built on a 14nm FinFET manufacturing process, the chipset features four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 2.2 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. The chipset also packs a Mali-G71 MP2 GPU to handle graphics processing. Connectivity-wise, the chipset supports all the latest standards including Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo.
The mid-range Exynos 7885 chipset will be paired with just 2GB of RAM, which suggests the tablet will be relatively affordable. On the software front, however, the SM-T515 will ship with the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box. It is possible that the tablet may come with Samsung’s new “One UI” for tablets. Moving on to the benchmarking performance, the upcoming tablet scored 1,277 points in the single-core test and 4,031 points in the multi-core test.
Apart from the above details, there is very little that is known about the SM-T515 currently. The SamMobile report had claimed the tablet will be available in Black and Silver color options at launch. Going by the tablet’s model number, there is a good chance that it could feature a display measuring somewhere around 10-inches diagonally. As mentioned earlier, the SM-T515 could be launched at or around MWC 2019 alongside the SM-T720, SM-T725, SM-P200, and SM-P205 tablets. While the SM-P200 and SM-P205 are expected to be variants of a new Galaxy Tab A model, the marketing names of the other upcoming Samsung tablets remain a mystery at this point.
