“The Samsung SM-P205 tablet will reportedly launch in Q1 2019 and have 32GB internal storage”
Samsung is reportedly working on a new tablet that will be part of the Galaxy Tab A lineup. This tablet may be launched as early as Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona or perhaps at the rumoured February 20th launch event where Samsung is said to launch the Galaxy S10 series. However, the details are scarce at the moment, though we may learn more in the coming weeks as the launch draws closer.
According to a report by SamMobile, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab A model is being developed with the model number SM-P205. It will arrive with 32GB as the base storage option and would be available in black and grey colours. In addition, it is reported to be arriving with the firmware version P205DXU0ARL4; it is not possible to say if it would ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box.
For the launch date, the Samsung SM-P205 tablet is also said to be launching in the first quarter of next year. The most obvious contender for the launch event would be Mobile World Congress 2019, which is slated to start on February 28th. Then there’s the rumoured February 20th launch event where Samsung may take the covers off the Galaxy S10 Lite, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ smartphones. The company will reportedly host a separate event in March as well, where it will showcase the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 as well as the Galaxy Fold foldable phone.
Since the tablet belongs to the Galaxy Tab A range, it is expected to be a mid-range model and not a flagship product. Samsung had launched the last device in this series around four months ago, Galaxy Tab A 10.5, a mid-ranger featuring a 10.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,200 x 1,920 pixels. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core, the Tab A 10.5 packs 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 400GB. It is powered by 7,300mAh Li-Polymer battery and operates on Android v8.1 (Oreo).
