Samsung just unveiled a fresh batch of tablets last month at CES, but the company may be preparing to expand its lineup of Android slates yet again later this month at Mobile World Congress 2014. Recent rumors have pointed to a trio of Galaxy Tab 4 devices, and today an 8-inch model was spotted in a GFXBench benchmark.
Based on today’s leak, it looks like the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 4 will feature a Snapdragon 400 processor with an Adreno GPU. A second variant of the device tested by GFXBench also appears to offer LTE support, and its model number SM-T337V suggests we could be looking at a Verizon model. PhoneArena points out that previous Samsung tablets variants headed to Verizon have all had model numbers ending in “V” as well.
Based on earlier reports, The Tab 4 8.0 will come equipped with an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel LCD display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support, a 6800mAh battery, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, and run will Android 4.4 out of the box with Samsung’s own UI on top. We’re also expecting a 7-inch Tab 4 with similar specs but a smaller 4450mAh battery, and a 10.1-inch model with more powerful 8 and 3-megapixel cameras.
Samsung has yet to confirm it’s bringing any new tablets to Mobile World Congress this month, but it wouldn’t be out of character for the company to unveil even more devices at the Barcelona trade show. After all, the South Korean tech titan did promise to amp up its tablet production in 2014. Looks like CES was just the first course.
