Samsung has a lot of stuff on their plate at the moment, not only are they battling poor sales and profit drops, but a change in leadership is going to occur soon as well due to the illness of Samsung’s chairman Kun Hee-Lee. The company has announced a while back that they’ll cut back on the amount of different device models they manufacture, but we keep on seeing a ton of Samsung smartphones and tablets leak all over the place. A couple of days ago Zauba and GFXBench listing showed off Samsung’s SM-T116 tablet model, which is most likely the upcoming Galaxy 4 Tab Lite. Well, another Samsung device appeared on Zauba.
The SM-T555 is another Samsung tablet listing which appeared on this Indian import / export website. The tablet was imported to India for $354, though this is not its retail price, of course. Let’s try to figure out which tablet is this, shall we. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 was released back in May and here are the model numbers of that device: SM-T530 (Wi-Fi), SM-T531 (3G and Wi-Fi) and SM-T535 (3G, 4G and Wi-Fi). So this, T-555, model is quite probably the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1’s successor which will arrive in a couple of months (mid-year) I presume. Android 5.0 Lollipop and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 will quite probably be a part of this package.
Galaxy Tab 5 10.1 is basically the only possible model here judging by the model numbers, so this will almost certainly be one of those mid-range tablet offerings by Samsung we’re going to see launched in 2015. It remains to be seen if Samsung will significantly tweak the design of this tablet or will they only make slight alterations to it like they do each year. This device really doesn’t sound all that appealing, but we’ll see how high will Samsung price this thing, if they managed to bring the price significantly down (which won’t happen according to the import log) this might even be something to consider, but I really doubt that will happen. Anyhow, does anyone out there own the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and what is your experience with that thing?
