New Samsung Tablet SM-T515 Pops Up in GeekBench, With Android 9.0 Pie In the Mix

By Radu Iorga

We already knew that Samsung was preparing a new Tab A or two for early 2019 and now we have more leaks about the product. It may as well be a Tab E, since it’s quite low specced. Anyways, the device appeared in GeekBench this week, under the codename SM-T515.

Samsung was actually working on a few new tablets, so it doesn’t surprise us to see this device popping up. The product you see here, may appear at MWC 2019 next month in Barcelona. It scored 1283 points in the single core test and 4017 in the multi core one in GeekBench. It’ll be a midrange affair with 2 GB of RAM and an Exynos 7885 CPU inside.

That’s the same processor that powers the best midrange phones from the company, like the Galaxy A7 (2018). 2 GB of RAM sounds like a bit of a bummer though. AT least there’s Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and there’s also the potential for One UI in a tablet version. Judging by the model number, this is the 4G LTE flavour of the machine, on account of its codename ending in “5”.

The model numbers of WiFi units end in “zero” usually. The product should be available in black and silver and at least two more models are expected within the Tab A family: SM-P200 and SM-P205. I expect 2 or 3 GB of RAM here, a beefy battery, a 10 inch or 11 inch screen, but an 8 incher is also not out of the picture.

Apple iPad Mini 5 Rumored to Debut in First Half of 2019, With New Entry Level iPad

By Radu Iorga

It’s been 4 years since the last iPad mini was released, the iPad Mini 4 and we’ve only started seeing a resurgence of rumors about a successor recently. We saw cases for the iPad Mini 5, some timid renders and the idea is that it’ll look the same as the predecessor. Today we learn more about it and another new slate from Apple.

Turns out that the Cupertino giant is getting ready to release a new iPad Mini in the first half of 2019, together with an entry level iPad. The source of the info is Digitimes, which has been a bit hit and miss over the past years. Their advantage is that they’re working with component suppliers though. The iPad Mini 5 is said to have the same unibody metal design with rounded sides as before and pretty much the same size.

No trace of narrow bezels, Face ID or other novelty. Perhaps we’ll get an Apple A12 CPU and the USB Type-C port, that has been included at the bottom of the latest iPad Pro models. The entry level model, which had a 9.7 inch screen in 2018 may switch to 10 inches in 2019 and get narrower bezels, plus the same Apple Pencil support.

A refresh will bring a new CPU, new USB port, maybe extra speakers. We could learn more around March time or at WWDC 2019 at the latest. Educational discounts are expected.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Make Certain To Order The Correct Audio Splitter!

By Tim

When ordering simple items for your phone or PC, make sure to pay close attention! I ordered a Y-splitter the other day but failed to realize it was just for audio!

Had I looked a bit closer and not be quite so eager to save $2.00 I would be able to use a good mic on my Nuu Mobile G3, or even a headset/mic combo! Now I am stuck ordering another splitter! (Which I have done as of this posting).

Videos or Links Mentioned in the video:
A Proper Y-Splitter: https://amzn.to/2Mbu8Gg
The Audio only Y-Splitter: https://amzn.to/2MdbD4o

The lesson to be learned here is to take your time when ordering new tech items. Whether it be a cable and adapter or a new smartphone or tablet., do the research first before pulling the trigger.

So all that being said, check out the video below for all the details. And make sure to  share this video and visit our channel and subscribe!

Chuwi Ubook 2 in 1 Tablet Ready for Debut, Priced at $400; Debuts on Kickstarter Soon

By James A.

Chuwi is at it again in 2019, with a new 2 in 1 tablet, that will go as high as 1 TB of storage. It’s called Chuwi Ubook and it’s priced at $400 and up, plus it packs a 11.6 inch Full HD screen. We also have a built in kickstand, shaped like the letter “U”. Let’s see what it sports.

There’s an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor inside, together with 8 GB of RAM. The Chuwi Ubook will be available via a Kickstarter campaign, that will begin on February 1st. the starting price could even be less than $400, according to sources. Well, at least during the crowd funding. The entry level model has a 128 GB SSD and the higher end unit goes to 1 TB of SSD.

Chuwi Ubook offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and it has connectivity options like micro HDMI, USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A ports, stereo speakers and a microSD card slot. Inside there’s a 30.4 Wh battery, which should offer plenty hours of fun (9.5 hours on paper). The detachable keyboard has backlit keys and a spill resistant coating.

I see there’s also stylus action and the design is rather elegant, reminding me of the older gen Surface Pro models. It runs on Windows 10 and has 760 grams of weight.

CES 2019: Huawei Introduces MateBook 13 Laptop and MediaPad M5 Lite Tablet

By James A.

Huawei was present at CES 2019, but no phones were seen. Instead they brought on a tablet and laptop: MediaPad M5 Lite and Huawei MateBook 13. The slate was already showcased internationally, but it only now reaches USA, while the laptop is pretty much a MacBook Air rival.

Huawei MateBook 13 is a 2.86 pound laptop with a 13 inch screen that offers a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution. It’s a slim laptop with a large trackpad and a keyboard that can take a few spills. It has a starting price of $999 and inside we find an 8th gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor (Whiskey Lake), as well as 256 GB of storage and integrated graphics.

There’s also a Core i7-8565U version with 512 GB of storage and also adding an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU, priced at $1299. Both versions have 8 GB of RAM and a battery that should offer around 10 hours of video playback. There’s also a fingerprint reader here within the Power button.

 

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite is a new tablet from Huawei, well not exactly new, but new in USA, where it hasn’t been available. It’s got a 10.1 inch screen, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus a starting price of $299. There’s an USB Type-C port on board, plus an audio jack and there are 4 speakers in the mix with Harman Kardon certification.

Specs include a Kirin 659 CPU, a 7500 mAh battery and Huawei promises 13 hours of video playback time.
