10″ and 8″ Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 versions have specs revealed again via benchmark
One month ago, three upcoming Galaxy Tab 4 tablets from Samsung seemingly got their full specs leaked. Because of the timing of that leak, we assumed that these would be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona, but Samsung chose not to do that. For what reason is unclear, but here we are in mid-March and the Galaxy Tab 4 series devices still aren’t official. That will hopefully change soon, but in the meantime two of these tablets have had their specs leaked again via some benchmark results courtesy of GFX Bench.
We’re talking about the 10-inch and the 8-inch models. The former of those is now expected to come with a 10.6-inch 1,280×800 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (with ARM Cortex-A7 cores), 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, a 3 MP rear camera, a 1.2 MP front camera, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat running the show.
The screen size may be a typo, since we’re used to 10.1-inch panels. Otherwise the specs line up nicely with those from the February leak, save for one pretty important detail: the camera was then said to be an 8 MP unit, whereas now it seems it’s a measly 3 MP part. Such a change would obviously not be for the better, though on the other hand we’re hoping not many people like to snap pictures with 10-inch tablets, so perhaps not many will be impacted by this.
The 10-inch Galaxy Tab 4 will get both Wi-Fi-only and 4G LTE-capable versions, the latter of which should bear the model number SM-T535. The FCC has greenlighted this device, confirming its support for LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, and Bluetooth. The SM-T530, which will be the Wi-Fi-only version of this tablet, also got certified by the FCC a few weeks ago, so an official announcement of these could come in the next few weeks.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 also managed to be put through the paces of GFX Bench, and its specs have been revealed to be pretty much identical to those of the 10-inch Tab 4, with the exception of the screen size (as you’d expect). The resolution is the same, though, at 1,280×800 – it looks like Samsung is using a similar strategy here with what it did for its Tab Pro tablets, which all come with the same screen resolution despite the size differences, and all have very similar internals.
The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 will have 1.5 GB of RAM for its LTE-capable version, and just 1 GB in its Wi-Fi-only iteration.
