If you’ve been holding out on you purchase of the next 8-inch tablet with Android OS because you were wondering what processor the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 will feature, then we can break the news on that topic today.
Since Tabletmonkeys were the ones that leaked the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 in the first place, it’s only appropriate that we leak the specs too.
The Android 13 tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 will be powered by the popular octa-core 2.2 GHz MediaTek Helio G99 processor (MediaTek MT8781 version), with a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

So that’s a big step up, at least on the processor side, from the current Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite that it will be replacing, which is powered by the MediaTek MT8768 processor.
But the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 is a tablet with an 8.7-inch screen, which I can also confirm with a display resolution of 1340 x 800.
And in that tablet category, it will be up against the just launched Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro which is also powered by the Helio G99 chipset.
Alldocube’s hot alternative has as much as 8GB of RAM though, and even 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage.
So in terms of performance, it’s easy to to see what tablet to pick. Samsung has a slightly larger battery at 5100 mAh though, against the 5000 mAh battery from Alldocube.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 will be launched as both a Wi-Fi only model (SM-X110), as well as different cellular models (SM-X115, SM-X117).
I expect the launch of this new Samsung tablet to take place between September and October.
