Ever wondered specifically why the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 Xl was called extra large and had the codename gta2xl? Me too. But today we found out exactly why as it turned out the Samsung SM-T590 / SM-T595 / SM-T597 is actually a 10.5-inch Android tablet. So, not a 10.1-inch tablet then.
So by the looks of it, we should get two 10.5-inch Samsung tablets in 2018, with both this Samsung tablet and the coming Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 with OLED display.
Not a whole lot of other new specs were revealed though for Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 Xl aka Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.5 (2018). But we did get some specs, such as the obvious 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi cover with Wi-FI Direct, and Bluetooth 4.2.
And Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 Xl 10.5 has dual antennas too, seen in the radiation image below. This is where the 4G LTE antennas are placed as well, which can also be useful information if you wonder if you are blocking the antennas when the reception is low.
Other specs revealed in today’s findings on the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 Xl includes a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, and various international GNSS navigation sensors.
