Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 Manual Leaks Out, Sketches Too

By Radu Iorga

Aside from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, there’s also another Sammy tablet coming, supposedly called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2. Now we have more faith about the existence of such a model, since its manual and sketches have leaked out.

Last month the device was certified, going by the codename SM-T583. It’s considered to be the successor to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1, a model launched in 2016 with the codename SM-T580. The specs of the newcomer show an Exynos 7870 processor, the same CPU from the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and the Galaxy J6 or the A6. The resolution is 1920 x 1200 pixels and you can find all of that in the manual.

The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo, an upgrade from the Nougat on the Galaxy Tab A 10.1. Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 has the measurements also leaked in the documents, like 250.4 x 166.2 x 8.5 mm, with a weight of 525 grams. Bluetooth 4.2 is also in the mix, a microSD and Bixby, plus Dolby Atmos. The sketches show that there’s no Home button here, while the volume and On/Off buttons are on the top.

The charging is done via the USB Type-C port at the bottom. Strangely enough we also get a front camera with LED flash, so maybe you’ll take selfies with this cam. A Live Sticker option is present too, plus a Beauty and Pro mode. The main camera has autofocus, HDR and Panorama mode. No megapixel count has been mentioned just yet.

Sources say that the device will come within a month and the price will be the same as the Galaxy Tab A.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Leaks Again, Has Bigger Screen Than Tab S3

By Radu Iorga

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 has leaked a record number of times, including in benchmarks, certifications and specs. It’s time for a new round of leaks, confirming what we knew already basically. It’ll be bigger than the Tab S3 for starters.

It’s been over a year since the Tab S3 debuted, so it’s high time for a follow-up. We previously saw the device on GFXBench and then via WiFi certifications. It’s only a matter of time till it debuts through an official event or gets unveiled without fanfare, as the Galaxy A models have in the past.

According to the latest leaks, it’ll have a 10.5 inch screen and Android 8.1. Previous leaks actually mentioned it with Android 8.0 first. GFXBench also lists several new features, like autofocus and touch focus for the main camera, as well s the GPU API.

Scores are also different from the last leaks, so a bit of tweaking has been happening. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to offer a 2.3 GHz octa core Snapdragon CPU, probably a Snapdragon 835, as well as a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

It also has a 13 MP back camera, 8 MP selfie shooter, GPS, Bluetooth, the works. Word through the grapevine says we may also end up with a 6 GB RAM version at some point. There’s also a worst case scenario of keeping the Snapdragon 820 CPU of the predecessor, according to some other rumors.

iOS 13 Said to Come With Improved iPad Features

By Radu Iorga

We’re rubbing our paws since there’s a lot of software goodies coming over the next weeks. There’s Microsoft BUILD 2018, Google I/O 2018 and WWDC 2018 next month. While iOS 12 is the platform to look out for from Apple, people are already dropping hints about iOS 13.

A Bloomberg source claims that iOS 13 is expected to come with iPad-focused functionality, including a home screen redesign. We’ve just received a redesign last year, with iOS 11, so it’s kind of early for that. Right now the iPad home screen feels and looks like the a bigger iPhone homescreen, but some people feel that the space could be utilized better. An updated Files app is also part of the picture and even some macOS-style features, like tabs within apps.

A Springboard revamp is also in the cards for 2019. iOS 13 “Yukon” will also bring extra Apple Pencil features and more multitasking and side by side apps. The rumors about cross platform apps are growing strong and I’m talking about cross platform action between iOS and macOS in 2019. With iPads getting stronger over the next year, it’s not out of the question to see more macOS-style features.

Extra keyboard action may also be in the mix, plus an improved Notes app.

6.5 inch iPhone X Could Come With Specially Designed Stylus Dubbed iPen

By Radu Iorga

Turns out that Apple, who seemed to have hated the styli so much is going all in with them, according to the latest leaks and analyst speculation. They’ll even launch a special one, an iPen tailored for the iPhone X Plus, or better said a 6.5 inch version of the iPhone X.

Steve Jobs was totally against a stylus and lo and behold one is coming to the iPhone too. The Apple Pencil wasn’t much loved for the way it charges, but it was appreciated for that it can do in tandem with the iPad Pro. Its levels of pressure, the ease of use and the pen on paper feel were all great hits with the public. The latest rumor calls the largest iPhone by the codename “Rolls Royce” and mentions it could support a stylus when it goes live in September.

The device is said to come with a 6.5 inch screen made by Samsung, an OLED panel and it’ll obviously cost more than $1000. I feel that this may well be the iPhone X Plus and a sort of replacement for a 7 inch or 7.9 inch tablet. Roseblatt analyst Jun Zhang believes that Apple will bring iPen support to the larger OLED iPhone, but the stylus won’t be bundled. Instead it’ll be sold separately.

Oddly enough the same source talks about a dual SIM connectivity option for the device. Zhang, just like Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple is going to launch 3 new iPhones this year, with two of them having 5.8 inch and 6.5 inch OLED screens and another having a 6.1 inch LCD display. The 5.8 incher is known as “Porsche”. The LCD one will be priced $200 cheaper than the other units.

A stylus on an iPhone sounds like overkill, but Samsung Galaxy Notes have been monopolizing the segment of stylus phablets for too long, so an alternative is welcome.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Tablet in the Making, but Won’t Come Soon, According to Analyst

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 is a tablet we’ve been covering for a while now, but without actual proof about its existence. There’s a fresh rumor in China that the device is indeed coming, but not anytime soon. Leading credence to the info, a Chinese analyst, Pan Jiutang has the scoop on the product.

Considering he says that the slate is stuck in R&D limbo, we’re in for quite the wait. He shared the info via Weibo, the famous Chinese social network. Sadly, that’s where the info starts and stops. It’s also true that Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun mentioned a while ago that the company was working on a new tablet, but didn’t mention the Mi Pad 4 by name.

Xiaomi also removed its whole tablet lineup from its official site and the tablet category is also gone. This may mean the the firm isn’t going to launch such a device anytime soon, in spite of the Lei Jun statements. We may well see a sort of spinoff company, like Huawei has Honor, Lenovo had ZUK and ZTE has Nubia. the Mi Pad 3 was announced in April last year, so it’s about time for an update.

It’s easy to speculate on what Xiaomi will deliver: probably a bigger diagonal, a MediaPad rival or a Galaxy Tab S rival. I expect the 13 MP camera from the Mi Pad 3 to stay unchanged, we may see a 10 inch and 8 inch version of the device. The screen most likely remains an IPS LCD, since there aren’t many OLED tablets out there. 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM are a given, plus a Snapdragon or MediaTek CPU, more likely MediaTek.

Stereo or even quad speakers should be present, as well as the latet MIUI on top of Oreo.
