It seems like Samsung is working on a new tablet. A Geekbench listing has made its way online and reveals that Samsung will be launching a new tablet called the Samsung SM-T515. Of late, development in the tablet market has been rather slow given the fact that smartphones have become larger in size and are more like phablet than smartphones. Last month quite a few tablets and smartphones were approved by Russia’s Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). Among these included the SM-T510 and its other variants: SM-T510X and SM-T515X apart from SM-T515.
So, what does the Samsung SM-T515 house? Well, the device will be powered by the Exynos 7885 SoC. The SoC features eight cores running at 1.59GHz. Coupled with this is 2GB of RAM. However, there are other variants of the SM-T515. This indicates that there’s a good chance the other models will be equipped with more RAM. The tablet manages to score 1283 points in the single-threaded CPU test and 4017 points in the multi-threaded CPU test. While these test results don’t seem impressive, it’s precisely because the tablet appears to be geared towards the budget-end market.
The tablet will run on Android 9.0 Pie. Going purely by the specifications of the new and upcoming Samsung tablet, it’s going to be no powerhouse. However, optimization to its software could make all the difference and ensure a smooth overall performance.
