It is waiting that Samsung has some tablets ready for its release, especially with his appointment on 21 February at the Mobile World Congress of 2016 so close. A pair of bencharks have brought to light two models data with SM-T819 and SM-T719 code name, and it is not too clear if they correspond to different evolution of the current generation, or if they announce the arrival of the Galaxy Tab S3 series.
The noise began in late January with a list of India Company of Zauba data, and just take much stronger after the appearance on Geekbench and GFXBench of these 8.0 and 9.7 inch Android models 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The first link is active, the second already don’t, but we already know that you should go on tiptoe with leaked Android benchmarks.
Snapdragon instead of Exynos
Both mounted a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 eight-core, four of them Cortex A72 1.8 GHz and four Cortex A53 low consumption, plus a GPU Adreno 510 and 3 GB of RAM. Here is the big difference with the current models, whose processor is the House, Samsung Exynos 5433 Octa-Core 64-bit 1.3 GHz / 1.90 GHz, along with a Mali GPU T760 and same 3 GB of RAM.
He says the benchmark that the large tablet has a screen with resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, but does not specify if it is SuperAMOLED as expected from the top of Samsung. Therefore maintaining that relationship 4:3 that invites their use in vertical and fosters productivity applications, but it penalizes video playback.
Galaxy Tab S3 or S2 Galaxy Tab review?
Therefore, there are two reasons to believe that this is not the big step ahead of the South Korean manufacturer, which is rather just a review. The first reason to think that we we have one evolution more Tab S2 and not a substitution are their own data technical, fairly even, nothing surprising. For example, these new versions They mounted the same as the phone Galaxy A9.
The other reason, perhaps a little more elaborate, is the nomenclature. The two version of the tablet 8 inch released so far are known as SM-W710 and SM-T715, while 9.7 inch versions correspond to the models SM-T810 and SM-T815. Taking into account that the Galaxy Tab S responded to SM-T700/T701/T705 and SM-T800/T801/T805 numbers respectively, hopefully, another definition for a change of generation.
Confirm all this, it seems more the idea of Samsung’s cool hardware that arrived in 2015 with leading-edge technology by 2014. We have already seen that Exynos and Snapdragon can coexist in models with the S5 Galaxy or Galaxy Note 3 brothers, why not to repeat again giving a small twist to today’s market.
