Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 Geekbench listing spotted

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 cleared its Bluetooth certification yesterday and has now popped up on Geekbench. The midrange tablet is now well through its development phase and evidence suggest the launch is imminent in the near future. We have spotted both the Wi-Fi (SM-X200) and LTE (SM-X205) variants of the Samsung tablet on Geekbench.

On the hardware front, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 runs on the Unisoc T618 octa-core chipset with a base clock of 2.0GHz. The processing unit is paired to 3GB of RAM and with that combined has posted a score of 1704 single-core and 5256 multi-core on Geekbench. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 which carries the model number (SM-X205) according to the Geekbench listing was earlier rumoured to be also getting higher RAM variants (up to 4GB). The internal storage options will also facilitate 32GB, 64GB or 128GB capacities. 

We had earlier also reported that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is likely to sport a 10.5-inch TFT WUXGA (1920×1200), an 8MP main rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The tablet will pack in 7,040mAh that could support fast charging. Samsung might also plonk in a quad-speaker setup with Dolby Atmos support. Although leaks so far suggest the existence of the Wi-Fi only variant, however, an LTE variant coming through has high possibilities.  

When it comes to design, Samsung has adopted a clean slab-like design that will be 8.7mm thick (including the camera bump). The design accommodates a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Type C port and a fingerprint sensor on the right-hand side rails. Three colour options – Gold, Silver, and Gray are expected to be available.
