If you recall, Samsung released two highly advanced tablets last year through its Galaxy Tab S range, and we have now learnt that it’s apparently working on a sequel to those. A duo of models named SM-T710 and SM-T810 have appeared out of nowhere, triggering a bevy of speculation regarding them.
The original Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets come in 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch sizes, with their model numbers being SM-T700 and SM-T800. The fact that those numbers are being bumped up by just 10 units indicates that the new versions won’t be huge updates over their predecessors.
After all, it would be pretty difficult to upgrade something that is already as advanced as the Galaxy Tab S range. To jog your memory, these slates come equipped with 2K Super AMOLED displays and feature 3GB worth of RAM. Their imaging duties are taken care of by an 8MP rear snapper and a 2.1MP front camera.
But as SamMobile, the source of this news points out, the Exynos 5 Octa processor which fuels their operations suffers small hiccups from time to time. It’s hence that there are hopes of Samsung equipping the Tab S successor range with a more advanced chipset than the one on its precursor.
Here’s a look at the specs of the current-gen Samsung Galaxy Tab S range:
– Display: 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch Super AMOLED, 2560 x 1600 pixels
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
– Processor: Exynos 5 Octa
– Memory: 3GB RAM, 16GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)
– Camera: 8MP rear, 2.1MP front
There’s still time for the second-gen Samsung Galaxy Tab S to be unveiled, so interested parties will need to cool their heels for longer. It’s said that the company may reveal the new range during the mid of this year.
