The Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2018) aka Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 has leaked in a hands-on image. The A2 carries the model numbers SM-T590 and SM-T595. It was reported by tabletmonkeys.com The model number SM-T595 had received WiFi certification last month after which it has now appeared in a leaked image. The origin of the image is stated as being from a regulatory organisation citing its low image quality.
The image quality is not exactly the best and the tab looks no different than any other tab. It does have similarities to the Galaxy Tab S4, thanks to the lack of a physical home button. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 is reportedly 259.9mm long and 161.1mm wide. According to official reports, the A2 will sport a 10.5-inch screen with an undisclosed display type or resolution, Android 8.1 Oreo, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, a 3.5mm jack and an optional charging dock. It is also supposed to be available in a 4G LTE variant. The SM-T590 represents the WiFi-only model while the SM-T595 represents the 4G LTE model.
The nature and date of launch is still a mystery. Since it has started popping up on certification agencies, the launch may be imminent. An internal Samsung document says that the tablet is due for launch around the FIFA World Cup in the next few weeks.
