Upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet With Exynos 7885 Appears on Geekbench


Samsung is working on a new Galaxy A series tablet with model number SM-P205. It will most likely be an affordable tablet and SamMobile had reported its existence through a leaked firmware related to the device. Now, we have spotted an entry for the same tablet in Geekbench’s online database.

Going by the information in the listing, the Samsung SM-P205 is running Android 9 Pie which is hardly a surprise since it has been six months since this version of Google’s operating system was originally released. The SM-P205 appears to be using the Exynos 7885 chipset (clocked at 1.59Ghz), paired with 3GB of RAM.

No other information is known about this upcoming tablet’s specifications but SamMobile reports that the SM-P205 could be launched in Q1 of 2019. The publication had also reported that the Galaxy A series tablet will come with 32GB of storage in its base variant and will be available in Black and Grey colors. There will also be another variant of the Galaxy Tab A tablet we’re talking about: SM-P200. The existence of this tablet model was identified through a model number that appeared in firmware files.

The Exynos 7885 is a 14nm chipset that was announced last year. It features two ARM Cortex-A73 CPU cores clocked at 2.2GHz, six ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at 1.6GHz, ARM Mali-G71 MP2 GPU, support for dual cameras with 4K video recording, an integrated LTE radio, and compatibility with LPDDR4X RAM chips.

Samsung could very well debut the upcoming mid-range Galaxy A tablet at MWC 2019 but we can be sure only in the next few weeks when the South Korean electronics giant conducts its mega launch event on February 20, 2019. The company will unveil at least six products—Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy S10e, its first foldable screen smartphone, Galaxy Earbuds, and the Galaxy Watch Active—at its pre-MWC press briefing.
