Next Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 benchmarked this early

Posted by wicked February - 12 - 2016 - Friday Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

After the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, it’s natural to expect a Galaxy Tab S3. However, the challenge is for Samsung to make the next one far better compared to the previous version. As we all know, the Galaxy Tab S is the company’s premium tablet line. It is usually released in two sizes (possibly with 8.0- or 9.7-inch displays) with more high-end specs and features.

The tablet may be arriving soon because the benchmark results have been spotted recently on GFXBench and Geekbench. This sighting is expected since the Mobile World Congress is just around the corner.

A GFXBench database tells us the bigger Samsung slate (SM-T819) will have a 9.7-inch screen, 1536 x 2048 display, 3GB RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, 32GB built-in storage, 2MP selfie camera, and 1.8 GHz and Adreno 510 graphics. There’s also a mention of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow running on 1the device.

The other Galaxy Tab S3 (SM-T719) will also have the same chipset and graphics processor, 3GB RAM, 8-inch Super AMOLED screen, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 32GB built-in storage,  and Android Marshmallow.  We’re expecting to see the new Galaxy Tab S3 at the Mobile World Congress this February but release in the market could be the following month, if not maybe in summer around July just like last year.

Unknown Samsung tablet receives Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certification

Posted by wicked December - 26 - 2015 - Saturday Comments Off


Another day another Samsung device it so seems. Earlier today we received word that an unknown Samsung tablet received Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certification.

The unknown Samsung device registered with model number SM-375S. Judging from the leaked listing, it has an 8-inch display and shipped out of country for testing purposes. It then notes that all devices are set to be destroyed following the conclusion of their evaluation. Each handset is marked with a $103 value indicating it’s a budget tablet, most likely a new member to Samsung’s low-end Galaxy Tab series.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certification(s) are among the first tests to take place in a device’s attempt to hit the market. That means there’s still plenty of room for leaks to go around before any official unveiling or launch. Perhaps we’ll find out more at CES 2016. For all the details on the test results, check out the gallery down below.

Official CyanogenMod support for Galaxy Tab S 10.5, 8.4 now ready

Posted by wicked December - 15 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy Tab S

We’ve been too busy checking out which smartphones are going to get the latest Android Marshmallow update that we forgot which tablets are getting the same. Well, we still don’t know that but what we have is information that two tablets are receiving official CyanogenMod support. Two Samsung tablets are getting the CM love–the Tab S 8.4 LTE and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi.

These two Android tablets are lucky to CyanogenMod support. Actually, this is expected but it took some time as the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Wi-Fi received official support earlier this year. We knew then it was only a matter of time. And since only the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE and the WiFi variant of Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are included in this round, we’re guessing the LTE version of the latter will soon follow.

Nightly builds of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi are now available to download:

CyanogenMod Downloads – Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Wi-Fi
CyanogenMod Downloads – Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE

These builds may be considered the official CyanogenMod support but as we’d always say–PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. Just a few more reminders: make sure your device is rooted, you’re ready to void warrant, and that you are flashing the nightly build on the correct device. Believe it or not, there are some people who still can’t follow instructions. Don’t be the kind of Android geek.

Samsung announces Galaxy Tab E in Taiwan

Posted by wicked June - 15 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is already expected in Taiwan since it was spotted a few days ago. It was seen in a catalogue in the country, showing the latest mobile devices. So far, we know the Galaxy Tab E will have a 9.6-inch HD screen, 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, 1.3GHz quad core processor, 8GB built-in storage, 1.5GB RAM, microSD card slot for expansion up to 128GB, 5MP main camera, 2MP front-facing camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 5,000mAh battery.

The information we shared with you earlier seem to be accurate. The tablet is both ideal for work and play you can bring the Galaxy Tab E everywhere. Feel free to use those Office and other Microsoft apps for school or work. And for those who like watching mobile TV, you can also enjoy free access to video channels including CNN News, Cartoon Network, and BBC News via a special TV app.

ePrice curently lists the Samsung Galaxy Tab E with a 699 RMB price tag which is about $112. If you may remember, Samsung already trademarked the Galaxy Tab A, Tab E, and Tab J names. We’ve seen a Galaxy Tab A already and now this Tab E in Taiwan. No sign of the Tab J yet but we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time. No idea too if this model will arrive in other regions.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 could be the thinnest tablet at 5.4mm

Posted by wicked June - 3 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is coming. We know it’s true but until the South Korean giant makes an official announcement, we’ll rely on the leaks, tips, and sightings for now. Last month, the LTE version of the tablet was spotted getting WiFi and Bluetooth certifications. Back in February, it was tipped to be even thinner than the iPad Air 2.

Samsung is believed to be rolling out not just one but two premium Android tablets as follow up to the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 released almost the same time last year. Rumor has it that new tablets will be known as the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and Galaxy Tab S2 8.0.

Just yesterday, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 was given an approval by TENAA, China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. Features of the Tab S2 8.0 include an 8-inch AMOLED display, 1536 x 2048 pixel resolution, and 4:3 aspect ratio. As for the dimensions, tablet measures 198.2 x 134.5 x 5.4 mm and weighs 260 grams. The 5.4 mm is very thin so it might be considered as the thinnest tablet beating the iPad Air 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will run Android Lollipop and will be powered by a 1.9 GHz octa-core processor. We’re guessing an Exynos 7420 this time. There’s also 3GB RAM, LTE connectivity, 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot for expansion, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is also believed to be the SM-T815 which also passed the FCC yesterday, June 2 (FCC ID A3LSMT815). The tablet has been given Bluetooth and WiFi certifications which means the tablet will be announced very soon. There’s also a reference to a SM-T81x series which could be the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 LTE gets WiFi, Bluetooth certifications

Posted by wicked April - 21 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Aside from the new Galaxy Tab A, there’s also the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tipped to be even thinner than iPad Air 2 arriving in the next few months. Compared to the budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A, this one is the next generation of Samsung’s high-end tablet which is an obvious follow up to last year’s Galaxy Tab S model. We’re actually expecting a June announcement since the first-gen was revealed in June 2014.

So far, we now that the Super AMOLED tablet has already been given Bluetooth- and WiFi-certifications. The version isn’t just WiFi since the model tested was a 4G LTE variant. Nothing is certain yet but it could be the standard entry-level variant already too.

Recently certified were the SM-T815 and SM-T817 models of the 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S 2. We also learned that they will be replacing the current SM-T805 model from Samsung. We didn’t hear about the specs the first time but based on the certification documents, the new Galaxy premium tablet will boast of Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and of course, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support. The first Galaxy Tab S has gotten a taste of Android 5.0 and it was recently updated to Android Lollipop –specifically the Android 5.0.2 version.

WiFi and Bluetooth certifications were handed only this April. Not much details on the specs and features yet but we’re expecting a high 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, 4:3 aspect ratio, DDR4 RAM, probably Samsung’s very own Exynos 7420 SoC processor or that 1.9 GHz Exynos 5433, 32GB built-in storage, 2 megapixel front-facing cam, and an 8MP main camera. No mention on the dimensions either but we heard it will thinner than Apple’s iPad Air 2. We’ll see about that.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 spotted at TENAA

Posted by wicked April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A was quietly launched in Russia last month and soon, another 9.7-inch version was announced in Germany which will be available this coming May. The German Galaxy Tab A will be out in two variants: WiFi and LTE. True enough, the Chinese version of the Tab A was also spotted in two forms. Tablet was recently approved by TENAA, the Chinese FCC, which means the device will be out in the Chinese market very soon. However, China isn’t getting a 9.7-incher but rather the 8-inch version according to the certification sighted.

TENAA actually approved two models: SM-P355 and SM-T355C. Based on the TENAA document, the Galaxy Tab A will have the following specs: an 8-inch screen, 1024 x 768p pixel resolution, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 5 megapixel main camera, 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, 1.2 Ghz quad-core processor, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage capacity, and a microSD card slot for expansion. The processor will likely be a Snapdragon 410 or 400 from Qualcomm.

Out of the box, the tablet will run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. It’s not really the latest version of the platform since some Nexus devices already run Android 5.1 Lollipop but it easily can be updated. Features are not that high-end since it’s not a premium tablet. Display is AMOLED but resolution is low.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 b

No official announcement from Samsung yet so others are saying this is the Galaxy Tab 5 8.0. However, there is a mention of an S-Pen stylus so we can say it’s a Tab A. It’s budget-friendly and Samsung is adding a stylus too. We expect to hear an announcement from Samsung anytime soon about its official launch in China.

Samsung quietly launches Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Posted by wicked March - 18 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

We knew Samsung was working on new Galaxy Tabs but we weren’t sure when and where exactly the South Korean giant will introduce the new tablets. Actually, it’s kind of challenging to keep track of them because there are too many. Aside from the numerous Galaxy smartphones, there are a lot of tablets to know so we just wait for official announcements from Samsung. If not, we depend on leaks and rumors for some clues. We didn’t expect this but Samsung held a press event recently in Russia to launch the new Galaxy Tab A. The new tablet will be available in two sizes: 8-inches and 9.7-inches.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A boasts of a a 4:3 aspect ratio, 1024 × 768 pixel resolution, 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 16GB built-in storage, 4,200 mAh battery, and 4G connectivity. With the battery we mentioned, the 8-inch variant of the Galaxy Tab A could last up to ten hours. The 9.7-inch model also have the same specs but with the addition of two loudspeakers.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A is said have a 300 euro ($318) price tag but in Russia, the tablet will be available starting at 16,990 rubles which is about $277. The WiFi and LTE version of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab A will be at 20,990 to 22,990 rubles (around $342 to $374). As for the 9.7-inch WiFi model, it will cost the same as the 8-inch LTE variant. Galaxy Tab A WiFi and LTE model is set at 24,990 to 26,990 rubles ($407 to $440).

Tablets will be available starting next month in Russia but no word when they will arrive in the United States and other regions.

Samsung to add more Galaxy Tablets to Lineup in 2015

Posted by wicked February - 6 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off


Although some analysts had predicted (and recommended) Samsung reducing its breadth of devices available to the consumer this year, it seems that Samsung still has some surprises up its sleeve.According to GalaxyClub, Samsung has applied for three new trademarks with the Korean IPO: the Samsung Galaxy Tabs A, E and J. These are obviously names for new tablets, which will most likely join the ranks of the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab S in the coming tech release season.

The new names follow Samsung’s current trend of using other letters besides ‘S’ for devices, like the Galaxies A5, A7, E5, E7, and J1. The move to letters instead of longer, heavily-worded names is a good move for simplicity, as well as a good move for showing some sense of progress as a company, which, in a world of rehashes and Galaxy S16s, and Note 11s, may be a good move for the company altogether.
