An unannounced Samsung tablet bearing model number SM-T515 had been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database last month, revealing some of its key hardware specifications. The tablet has now been certified by the Bluetooth SIG, hinting at a possible unveiling later this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Samsung SM-T515 to Launch as the Galaxy Tab A3 XL
The SM-T515 Bluetooth certification reveals the upcoming tablet will be marketed as the Galaxy Tab A3 XL. In addition to confirming the name of the device, the Bluetooth certification also tells us that the device will support the Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy standard. Going by the previous AnTuTu benchmark leak, the tablet will be powered by an Exynos 7885 14nm octa-core processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. In terms of software, the tablet is expected to ship with the Android 9.0 Pie OS out of the box. The tablet will be available in two color options at launch: Black and Silver. Apart from these details, however, there is very little that we know about the Galaxy Tab A3 XL currently.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A3 XL is likely to be introduced at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona later this month, alongside a few other new Android tablets as well as the new Galaxy A-series lineup. Some of the other rumored upcoming Galaxy tablets include the SM-T720 / SM-T725 and SM-P200 / SM-P205. The SM-T720 and SM-T725 are tipped to be available in 64GB and 128GB storage options at launch in Gray and Black color options. While the identity of SM-T720 and SM-T725 models has not been confirmed yet, the SM-P200 and SM-P205 are rumored to be variants of a new Galaxy Tab A tablet. If Samsung does plan to showcase all the three tablets at MWC this year, there is a good chance that the other two tablets will also be granted Bluetooth certification very soon.
