Samsung didn’t just announce the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e yesterday, but also did an Germany exclusive announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (SM-T510/SM-T515), as some form of pre-announcement teaser ahead of the full global Samsung Galaxy event in the middle of next week.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (SM-T510 Wi-Fi / SM-T515 4G LTE) is a 10.1-inch Android 9.0 tablet that Samsung says will be launched for 210/270 Euro on April 5. With a price like that, I imagine it will be released for a price of around $179 – $199 in the US.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (SM-T510/SM-T515) is the successor to the popular and well equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), launched 2 1/2 years ago.
So the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) follows in its footsteps, just with a little modernization, like a USB Type-C port. It’s also powered by a newer octa-core Samsung Exynos 7904 processor, with 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, but with microSD card support all the way up to 400GB.
We mentioned that this tablet was benchmarked with the Exynos 7885 chipset last month and that it’s codenamed “Galaxy Tab A3 XL”. But it was also benchmarked again yesterday, with a top out Geekbench 4 score of around 1275 in single-core, and 4040 in multi-core.
New Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 specs for the 2019 model includes a 10.1-inch screen with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200, a 5MP front camera, 8MP rear camera, Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, a 6150 mAh battery good for 12 hours of videoplayback, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetoth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and a USB 2.0 Type-C port.
This tablet is on the light side, at 460 grams, with a thickness of just 7.5mm as well.
