The budget tablets of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 series are expected sometime in the fourth quarter of this year, just in time for the holiday shopping season. The development, on the other hand, is already running at full speed. The upcoming Samsung tablets have been certified by the FCC, the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Bluetooth SIG, by SafetyKorea and by the Indian BIS. They also ran a test on the Geekbench benchmark platform.
The image above right is from the SatefyKorea certification. You can see the front of the tablet with the top edge showing the selfie camera. Pictured is the SM-X115N model, which is likely to be the regular Galaxy Tab A9. Another model number has also surfaced – the model code SM-X216B is expected to identify the Galaxy Tab A9+.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 has a 5,000 mAh battery that charges at a slow 15 watts, which is typical for the Koreans. The tablet is 210.7mm long and 124.7mm wide. In addition to the front camera, there is also a single main camera on the back, a 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as LTE, GPS and Bluetooth. The Geekbench scorecoard also reveals that a Snapdragon 695 chipset with the Adreno 619 graphics unit sits at the helm. There’s 4GB of RAM and Android 13, presumably with Samsung’s own One UI version 5.1 on top.
