Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2018) Leaks in Render, Has No Home Button

By Radu Iorga

As if things weren’t complicated enough with the upcoming lineup of Samsung tablets, there’s a new model leaking out these days. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2018), which has just been rendered.

It comes after a few Galaxy Tab S4 leaks, some Galaxy Tab A2 slip ups and an appearance or two from the Galaxy Tab A2 XL, plus an Advanced model. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2018) is clearly a more budget offering, an 8 incher with a new design format. It ditches the Home button and fingerprint scanner, possibly in favour of the same high performing iris scanner as the Galaxy Tab S4.

The new tablet is much smaller than the 2017 model and while the side bezel size is pretty much the same, the format has been changed. It’s more rectangular and wide now, with the top and bottom bezel being trimmed. 7.5 mm of height have been shaved here. The device is made of aluminum and we’ve got a main camera at the back sans LED flash.

Previous benchmark listings mentioned this device with a Snapdragon 430 CPU inside, as well as 2 GB of RAM. It also has 32 GB of storage, Android 8.1 Oreo and possibly some Bixby action, at least as information aggregator. There’s no way of telling if this device will debut on August 9th with the Note 9 or on August 30, during IFA 2018.

Expect a pretty affordable price tag.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Goes Official; 8-inch Tablet with Snapdragon 660 AIE and $168 Price Tag

By Claudiu Sima

Today on the Chinese market, Xiaomi introduced the Mi Pad 4 tablet – a device that could re-open the public’s appetite for this product area. We say this because this new model comes packed with some great specs taking into account the selling price. Let’s see how the hardware looks like!

First we have the display, a 8-inch IPS LCD panel with 16:10 aspect ratio and a WUXGA resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels – great for displaying images at high quality and keeping a low power consumption. There’s an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE processor on board and the Adreno 512 GPU. No microSD slot unfortunately.

We get a 5-megapixel selfie camera with AI Face Unlock, a main 13 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, HDR support and Full HD video capture. There’s an USB Type-C port, a 6000 mAh battery that supports 10W charging and the following connectivity options: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 and optional 4G LTE.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 runs Android 8.1 Oreo and measures only 7.9 mm in thickness and weighs 342.5 grame. Deliveries start on June 29th in China and you can get either the black or the pink color. Here are the prices:

  • 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage (Wi-Fi) – $168
  • 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage (Wi-Fi) – $214
  • 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage (4G LTE) – $229

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Will Indeed Have a Snapdragon 660 CPU, 8 Inch Screen

By Radu Iorga

Turns out that Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 had another bunch of its specs confirmed, this time the screen, CPU and a few more. As you found out yesterday, the device is meant to debut on June 25th, with the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro.

We’re expecting here to see a Snapdragon 660 CPU, according to the latest leaks, plus 4 GB of RAM at least. The CPU will be underclocked from the usual 2.2 GHz to 2 GHz, it seems. The Mi Pad 4 will also receive software tweaks, offering “smart game acceleration”. It will thus be promoted as some sort of gaming machine. The folks of XDA already predicted some of the features of this device, CPU included.

An 8 inch Full HD (or more) screen is in the cards, but the odd 18:9 aspect that was also leaked doesn’t quite make sense. Other specs include a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter and a 6000 mAh battery. Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will have a metal body and probably a sub $300 price tag. No info on this OS it runs, but it’s probably only Android Oreo with MIUI 10 this time around.

It would be a pain to make Windows 10 run on the Snapdragon 660 CPU, I guess. Expect to learn more over the weekend, when the leak floodgates are let loose.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Tablet Could Become a Thing, Leak Shows

By James A.

It’s been a while since Sony released a tablet, especially an Xperia model, but they may just get back in this segment, with a so called Xperia XZ2 Tablet. The last slate they released was the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet and since then they hedged their bets on smartphones, more than slates.

A teardown of the Sony camera app has shown that Sony is going to launch two new tablets within the Sony Xperia XZ2 lineup. The APK data shows two potential devices, an 8 inch and 10 inch model. According to insiders, the tablets are going to come this summer, most likely announced with a future flagship the Sony Xperia XZ2 Pro. That one was actually expected to come at MWC 2018, but it didn’t make it.

If you ask me, “summer” may well turn into IFA 2018. Sony Xperia Z tablets were never big hits, except for maybe a Compact model or two coupled with a PlayStation joystick, that was actually a pretty swell gaming machine. It’s also true that many other Android device makers have abandoned the market, letting Apple have all the pie and the likes of Microsoft, Samsung and Lenovo struggle to dominate convertibles and detachables.

 

Judging from previous releases, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Tablet is probably going to be a Snapdragon-based machine, with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and a 6000+ mAh battery. For some reason I also have great expectations from the device’s camera system.

There should also be an Xperia XZ2 Tablet Compact, with 8 inch screen and I’m sure both models will have LTE versions and Oreo on board.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Reaches USA, as New Rugged Tablet Priced at $420

By James A.

While Samsung has yet to launch the long expected Galaxy Tab S4 this year, they’re making good on their promise to debut new rugged devices. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 has just reached the USA, priced at $420. It’s actually styled as “Active2” and it was announced last year for select markets.

It’s available in USA now, in WiFi and LTE versions, priced at $420 and $520 respectively. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is an 8 inch Android tablet that has midrange specs. Those include an octa core processor of unknown identity, probably an Exynos, as well as 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution.

It runs on Android Nougat and uses a 4450 mAh battery, charged via USB Type-C port. Of course, this is a rugged machine, that being its primary appeal. It can take on water, dust and shocks with ease. Since it’s made to be used in areas that are dirty, dusty, foggy, it comes with physical buttons, which let you access the core features. It can also be used with gloves.

An S Pen stylus is included, itself resilient to water and dust. The LTE version works on Verizon and AT&T without problems. This is a MIL-STD-810 certified product and it also comes with an 8 megapixel back camera. Samsung provides here functions like IBM Maximo for asset management, Scandit for retail and Omnitracks XRS for the transport business. Facial recognition is also in the mix via a 5 MP shooter.
