Samsung have launched the Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 (SM-T583), starting in select markets, but don’t expect to see Samsung’s latest 10.1-inch Android tablet in the store, because even though this is a Android tablet, it is also a enterprise tablet and education sector tablet.
Like we wrote in our leaks in July, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 (SM-T583) is essentially a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 that’s been given a tiny overhaul for the enterprise market, along with Android 8.0 Oreo, Samsung Knox Configure security features at enterprise level, and microSD card support up to 400GB.
So Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 specs are mainly a 1.6 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 10.1-inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.
As for the other hardware, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 has a 12 hour battery life from a 7300 mAh battery, full dual-band Wi-Fi cover, Bluetooth 4.2, stereo speakers, a 2MP front camera, and 8MP rear camera.
The dimensions are 8.5mm in thickness and a weight of 525 grams on this Samsung tablet.
On the consumer market, the spiritual successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 that this tablet is based upon, became the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 when it was launched on August 1.
