Samsung is working on an entry-level 10-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 5

By December 28th, 2014 AT 1:54 PM

Samsung has started working on its next-generation line-up of its budget Galaxy tablets. As the size of smartphones is increasing, OEMs have started releasing large screen tablets. As opposed to earlier, when the sweet spot for tablet screen size was 7 inches, OEMs have moved on to release tablets with 8 or 9-inch screens. Samsung is currently working on a 10-inch Galaxy Tab 5, a budget tablet.

Samsung Zauba

The information comes from Zauba, a website which tracks imports/exports related data. Samsung imported the SM-T555 tablet into India on December 22 for R&D purposes and a declared valued at Rs 22,571. A day later, Samsung imported one more tablet, the SM-T116, a 7-inch tablet with a declared value at Rs. 6,450.

If we consider the model numbers of the Tab 4 10.1, it came with model numbers SM-T530 (Wi-Fi), SM-T531 (3G and Wi-Fi) and SM-T535 (3G, 4G and Wi-Fi). If we compare them with the listing on Zauba, it wouldn’t be hard to believe if the latter is actually the Galaxy Tab 5 10.1. It will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and will have a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 under the hood. The device is expected to be same will see a May/June release.

As far as the SM-T116 is concerned, it most probably be priced around Rs. 10,000. It might feature a 1.2GHz quad-core Speadtrum SC8830 processor, 1GB RAM, and will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
