Just one day after the Samsung SM-T825 officially had its Wi-Fi certification published by the Wi-Fi certification body, we can now reveal similar official news from the Bluetooth body on the same Samsung SM-T825 tablet.
The 9.7-inch cellular tablet Samsung SM-T825, which in one form or another should be a Super AMOLED Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 or similarly named tablet, had its Bluetooth certification approved on January 5th 2017, with the files for it made available after January 6th.
Just like the Samsung SM-T825 Wi-Fi certification from yesterday, this official Bluetooth listing doesn’t reveal much in way of specs either, other than the main Bluetooth 4.2 component, and that the Samsung SM-T825 version is indeed a cellular tablet, as it is listed under the category of ” Samsung Mobile Phone” and “Samsung Mobile Device.”
If there is any significant new hardware in this SM-T825 tablet, like a new processor or more RAM, it should actually count as a Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 and not a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, since Samsung already launched a New Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 last year with a new processor. But they never formally announced that new version. They just put it out there on the market.
So how exactly Samsung will brand the Samsung SM-T825 remains to be seen, and there are many possibilities, but of course the next model series in line would be a Tab S3 series now as far as branding goes.
Apart from the specs that we have been able to dig out of all the various spottings up until now, no insider spes have been leaked from Samsung yet.
The official SM-T825 specs we have by now, includes that of a 9.7-inch Android tablet, with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi cover, Bluetooth 4.2, and that this model will have cellular capabilities.
Samsung didn’t announce any new tablets at CES 2017. The closest thing was the new 12.3-inch 2400 x 1600 resolution Samsung Chromebook Plus convertible with touchscreen and a built-in digitizer pen. It will be launced in early February.
