A new Samsung tablet with the model number SM-T5050 has now surfaced on GeekBench for benchmarking tests. As per the listing, the tablet will arrive with a Qualcomm chipset with a base frequency of 1.80GHz. Sadly, there is no mention of the official moniker for the processor. Although the listing does mention the codename ‘Benga’ for the SoC.

The kernel source code reveals some information such as the chipset has octa-core Kryo 260 CPU (4+4 clusters) and Adreno 610 GPU. Considering this information, it looks like the chipset is going to be Snapdragon 662 or Snapdragon 665. We’re expecting the tablet to arrive with the Snapdragon 662 since it is relatively newer than the latter.

For those who’re unaware, the Snapdragon 662 is manufactured over the 11nm fabrication process. The chipset can support up to 192MP camera sensor. Other features that it supports are LPDDR4X RAM, Bluetooth 5.1, Type-C, Quick Charge 3.0 along with X11 LTE modem. Apart from the chipset, the tablet will also arrive with Android 10 operating system and 3GB of RAM. Coming to the benchmarking scores, we’re looking at 317 points for single-core and 1358 in multi-core performance.

Apart from this, the listing doesn’t really talk about anything else. With that said, we might see some more information surfacing on the web soon.

Might arrive as Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2020)

If we go by the model number, then it looks like the affordable Samsung tablet could arrive as Galaxy Tab A 7.0 (2020). A couple of months ago, Samsung launched its Galaxy Tab A 8.2 (2020) in the United States for a price tag of $279. The original Tab A 7.0 was launched way back in 2018 so the brand might be thinking of launching a 2020 version as well. What’s the final moniker is going to be? Well, only time will tell that.

Samsung currently is packed with numerous product launches on August 5 at Galaxy Unpacked event. We will see the Note 20 lineup, Galaxy Fold 2, Galaxy Z Fold 5G, Galaxy Tab S7 series, Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Buds Live.
