We’ve already started seeing leaks on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 series, but it looks like there might also be upgraded versions of last year slate carrying 64-bit processors. A report has surfaced stating that the company is working on the SM-T333 slate which is said to be the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 with Snapdragon 410 and there’s a SM-T533 device as well, which recently got certified at Bluetooth SIG.
SamMobile is reporting this information citing GalaxyClub.nl as its source. Details on the SM-T333 popped up on the GFXBench website where it clearly mentions the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 moniker. For a quick recap, the current model comes with a Snapdragon 400 quad core chipset with an HD display.
The benchmark website highlights that the new version will have a 1.2GHz quad core Cortex A53 SOC from Qualcomm with Adreno 306 graphics. This would be a small upgrade over the previous processor. The remaining components will apparently remain untouched.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 SM-T333 specs on GFXBench:
– Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– 8-inch 1280 x 800p display
– 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 SOC
– 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage
– 3MP rear camera, 1.2MP front shooter
While Android 4.4.4 KitKat is mentioned, there’s a good chance that the slate will come with Lollipop preloaded. Next we have the SM-T533 model that’s said to be an upgraded version of the current 10.1-inch tablet. Bluetooth SIG hasn’t revealed anything concrete on this slate. Lastly, the SM-T239 has been spotted making its way to India at Zauba and is supposedly the successor to the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4.
Seeing as the hardware difference between the current and upcoming options in the Galaxy Tab series is minimal, it’s possible that the company could simply called the new devices refreshed releases. But then again, the lineup hasn’t really grown much over the years and we could see the slates go official with the Galaxy Tab 5 branding instead.
