The Galaxy Tab A2 XL has been detailed in another leak earlier today, with all technical specifications of Samsung’s upcoming entry-level tablet being shared by SamMobile. The device will reportedly feature a 10.5-inch LCD panel with an FHD resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels amounting to an aspect ratio of 16:10, with the Galaxy Tab A2 XL hence being expected to adopt a form factor similar to that of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4 flagship. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 chip is said to be powering the device, featuring eight cores clocked at a maximum operating frequency of 1,800MHz. 2GB of RAM will also be part of the package, backed by 32GB of storage space expandable via a microSD card slot by an unspecified amount (presumably 256GB), as per the same report.
The rear panel of the Galaxy Tab A2 XL will reportedly feature an 8-megapixel camera, whereas its top bezel will accommodate a 5-megapixel sensor. The tablet should also be fueled by a 7,300mAh battery, with that same capacity being used by the cell implemented into the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4, according to recent rumors. Fast charging support is said to be included as well and while no detail on the thereof have been provided by the source, Samsung is likely to opt for a traditional 5V/2A solution is already commercialized on a wide variety of occasions in recent years. The Galaxy Tab A2 XL will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with its operating system likely being Samsung’s custom implementation of Google’s mobile software.
Standard Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac support will be included as well, with Samsung also reportedly preparing a 4G LTE version of the device also known as the SM-T595. The Wi-Fi-only variant is said to be bearing the model number SM-T590. While the handset is expected to come with a physical Bixby key, it won’t have any such system navigation buttons and neither is it believed to be featuring a fingerprint reader or an iris scanner. Samsung already finalized the firmware for both variants of the Galaxy Tab A2 XL, suggesting the gadget may be announced in the coming days.
