In April this year, the Eurasian Economic Commission certified two variants of an upcoming Samsung Galaxy tablet: SM-T290 and SM-T295. The upcoming tablet has now popped up at the FCC, shedding some light on its design as well as hardware. It is being speculated that the tablet could debut as the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019).
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) to Pack a 4980mAh Battery
The Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) diagram listed in one of the documents on the FCC website reveals the camera positioning on the back of the tablet will be nearly identical to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019). However, it is impossible to tell from the diagram if the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) will come with a similar metal construction as the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) or if it will have a polycarbonate chassis instead.
Apart from the design of the tablet, the FCC filings also reveal the tablet’s battery capacity. According to the FCC listing, the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) will pack a 4980mAh capacity battery. In comparison, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) comes with a 6150mAh non-removable battery. The smaller battery size isn’t surprising since the Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2019) will have a smaller 7.0-inch sized display.
Sadly, the rest of the tablet’s hardware specifications still remain a mystery. The tablet’s alleged Geekbench listing that surfaced online a few weeks back had suggested it would run on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset clocked at 2.0 GHz. In terms of memory, the tablet is likely to ship with 2GB of RAM. Additionally, the Geekbench listing suggested the tablet will be shipped with the Android 9 Pie operating system out of the box. Since the SM-T295 has now hit the FCC, we can be hopeful of seeing the device go official sometime before the end of the current quarter.
