Samsung’s Upcoming Galaxy Tab A Tablet Will Include an S Pen, Reveals Bluetooth Certification


Update 1 (February 25,2019 12:00 PM): After getting certified by the Taiwanese NCC certification agency last week, Samsung’s upcoming SM-P200 tablet bagged certification from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) today. In addition to SM-P200, the SM-P205 variant of the upcoming tablet has also received Bluetooth certification. The Bluetooth SIG listing suggests the tablet will be launched as the “Galaxy Tab A with S PEN”. Going by the name listed on the Bluetooth Launch Studio, it is quite clear that the SM-P205 / SM-P200 will come equipped with an S Pen. Its display size, however, has not been revealed yet. Apart from the tablet’s name, the Bluetooth listing also reveals the tablet will support the Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy standard. Since the tablet has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, Bluetooth SIG, and Taiwan’s NCC already, we can expect it to be made official very soon.


Taiwanese certification agency NCC today certified an upcoming Samsung Android tablet bearing the model number SM-P200. Based on earlier leaks, the SM-P200 is expected to be launched under the Galaxy Tab A series.

Samsung SM-P200 Will Pack a 4200mAh Battery

The SM-P200 NCC certification reveals the tablet will pack a 4200mAh capacity battery and will be bundled with the EP-TA50JWS power adapter in the box. According to the certification, the adapter supports up to 7.75W charging. On the connectivity front, the upcoming tablet will support Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. In addition to the specifications, the NCC certification also includes a few images of the upcoming tablet. While the images do not show the tablet’s design very clearly, it appears the SM-P200 will look more or less similar to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019).

The Samsung SM-P200 is rumored to be available with at least 32GB of onboard memory. It will be available in two colors at launch: Black and Gray. The SM-P205 variant of the tablet was spotted on the Geekbench database recently, suggesting it could be powered by the same Exynos 7904 octa-core chipset as the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019). The Geekbench listing had also revealed the tablet will be available with 3GB of RAM. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019), on the other hand, comes in a single memory configuration with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

Samsung announced two new Android tablets last week: Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) and Galaxy Tab S5e. The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) sports a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 WUXGA resolution display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. As mentioned earlier, the tablet runs on a 14nm Exynos 7904 octa-core processor with a Mali-G71 GPU. The tablet also comes with an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera with face unlock, and a 6150mAh battery. Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is a more premium offering with a sleek metal body and 10.5-inch 2560 x 1600 WQXGA resolution Super AMOLED display. It runs on a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 octa-core processor, coupled with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Rest of its key highlights include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera with face unlock, AKG-tuned quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, USB Type-C port, and a 7040mAh battery. Both tablets run on Android 9.0 Pie OS with Samsung’s custom One UI running on top.
