New Samsung Galaxy Tab A Tablet Appears in GeekBench, With Exynos 7885 Processor

By Radu Iorga

We already knew that Samsung was working on new Galaxy Tab A devices and even certifications and leaks happened. The SM-P205 model popped up a few times and now the affordable tablet appears in GeekBench, revealing some specs.

The device is listed in the benchmark’s online database, as Samsung SM-P205 and it comes with Android 9.0 Pie. It uses the Exynos 7885 processor, clocked at 1.59 GHz, plus 3 GB of RAM. We can’t tell other info for sure, but SamMobile believes the slate will be launched in Q1 2019. They’re also claiming it’s going to have 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.

The slate should be available in black and grey and it’ll have another version, known as SM-P200. The Exynos 7885 is a 14 nm processor that was announced last year. It comes with two ARM Cortex-A73 cores, clocked at 2.2 GHz and 6 ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.6 GHz. Then there’s the Mali G71 MP2 GPU and support for dual cameras with 4K video capture.

Integrated LTE radio is in the mix, plus compatibility with LPDDR4X RAM chips. This midranger could debut at MWC 2019, since Samsung doesn’t have anything else to launch there, as the S10 comes on February 20th. I’d love to see stylus support on this tablet, but I think it won’t happen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Rugged Tablet Launching in India on February 14th

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has started sending media invites for an upcoming event that involves a new rugged tablet coming from the South Korean device maker. It’s the Galaxy Active Tab 2, that will arrive with military specs in India on February 14th. We have details below.

The product is MIL-STD 810G certified, plus IP68 dust and water resistant. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 has been launched in the USA using the same tagline teased for India: “Make Hard Look Easy”. Interestingly, the slate is listed in the Business area of the Samsung site, so it may not be intended for the average consumer.

Galaxy Tab Active 2 comes in WiFi and LTE versions in USA, packing an 8 inch TFT display, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Inside we find the Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot and we sure hope that the Android 7.1 Nougat software of the US version has been bumped up to Oreo at least.

Other features include an 8 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter with face unlock. There’s also a fingerprint sensor for extra security. Samsung claims that this product can survive for half an hour in five foot deep water. It also comes with S Pen support, AR features and a 4450 mAh removable battery, good enough for 11 hours of usage apparently. You can also hook up a keyboard via POGO pins.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: XNSpy App For Android And iOS What Is Your Take?

By Tim

Tonight we take a quick look at an App for iOS and Android that allows you to monitor how a phone or tablet is being used.

It is called XNSpy and I would like your opinions on it.

Videos or Links Mentioned in the video:
XNSpy Website: https://xnspy.com/

This is a very powerful app folks. It allows for a myriad  of info that allows a parent or employer to spy on just about every aspect of a phone or tablets use.

Phones calls, IM’s, SMS, GPS locations, keylogging, remote control of a phone and a dozen others.

My ony concern is if someone installs this onto a phone that they do not own to use it for other than honorable pursuits, such as stalking, stealing information, etc.

So watch the video and make sure in the comments section on YouTube to give your opinions. Also make sure to share this video!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

Apple iPad Mini 5 May Come With No Design Changes, But Powerful CPU

By Radu Iorga

Here we are again, with some leaks related to the iPad Mini 5. Turns out that the device will have very small to none cosmetic changes, but also powerful hardware. Let’s see what’s new.

It’s been more than 3 years since the last iPad Mini came, the iPad Mini 4, so we’re long overdue an upgrade. Apple has been reported a bunch of times to have prepared a follow-up, potentially together with a 10 inch educational iPad. The iPad Mini 5 info is now being provided by Japanese blog Macotakara. They’re a pretty reliable source, that now claims that the product will have many things in common with the iPad Mini 4, starting with the audio jack, Touch ID fingerprint scanner and Lightning port.

No USB Type-C port or Face ID, it seems. Even the overall dimensions and large bezels are unchanged. Apple decided against Face ID and slim bezels, because it would have pushed the price of the device to a way too high range. People are expecting the iPad Mini 5 to start at less than the $329 price tag of the 9.7 inch iPad (2018).

The iPad Mini 4 is still being sold for $399 in the 128 GB version, in the meantime. The CPU is said to be an Apple A10 or A10X for the iPad Mini 5, plus enough RAM, something like 3 GB of maybe even 4. I think that the Apple A10 and 3 GB of RAM are enough. If this is priced anywhere below $300, it’s actually worth the buy. Apple Pencil compatibility is still in the cards.

US Army Soldiers Are Using Tablets to Operate Drones Now

By Radu Iorga

The US Army is ready to receive an upgrade, using a series of Macbook-sized tablets to control drones. They already have AI gear, high res sensors, faster computer processing and the “tablets” that can control multiple drones at a time. There’s also multi drone interoperability.

The tablet we mentioned is developed by the Army and it’s actually the size of a compact laptop. It enables soldiers to control multiple drones on a single system and it’s about to change drone strategy. Sometimes the offensive efforts are coordinated from vehicles or the field, so that’s why a tablet is necessary.

Using the handheld, soldiers can manage flight path, operations and sensor payloads even. All of the gear works via an infrastructural backbone, a new generation one. The Army has been developing this together with MAG Aerospace, which did the engineering for the new controller. The controller is expected to reach formal production next year.

The tablet can operate small drones, like the Micro Air Vehicle, 4 pound Raven and 13 pound Puma. We’ve seen tablets in commercial airplane cockpits, in the operating room and now controlling vital army assets. And that’s in spite of the tablet segment being in a drop point now (even though there are recovery signs). Honestly I expected some VR interaction for army gear, but that’s not here yet.

I’d love to see the specs of those tablets though.
