“Samsung Galaxy Tab A4s may feature mid-range specs and be aimed at casual browsing or content consumption purposes”
Samsung is seemingly set to launch a new tablet, dubbed Galaxy Tab A4s, from reports gleaned off certification agencies so far. The device, which was spotted on the Bluetooth SIG certification website under codename Samsung SM-T307U, will seemingly come with mid-range specifications. Given that it is clearing multiple certification standards right now, speculations suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A4s might be launched at the upcoming CES 2020 event.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A40s specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A4s also recently cleared the Wi-Fi Alliance certification, following which it was listed on the respective website’s archive as well. Not a lot of technical information has surfaced regarding the possible specifications of the Tab A4s, but going by what little information is at hand, it seems that the device may come with an 8-inch display, making it fairly compact in display size. Furthermore, it may also come with cellular connectivity in select markets, including the US.
Other features that have been spotted as yet include a Brown colour option, Android Pie on-board, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity to keep up with present generation connectivity options. While key details regarding the laptop are still missing, the overall makings seem to be that of a mid-range tablet that can be priced competitively, in order to offer strong competition to the likes of the entry-level iPad.
Tablets have been facing a tough phase in terms of shipments in recent times. With the increasing average size of a smartphone display and laptops becoming increasingly lighter, thinner and easier to carry, tablets have become niche products that are bought for very specific use cases. With a device such as the rumoured Galaxy Tab A4s, it will be interesting to see how Samsung markets the device, and much of its commercial success will depend on how it is priced.
