Galaxy Tab 5 8.0 (SM-T377A) headed for AT&T passes through FCC


Last updated: October 2nd, 2015 at 17:13 UTC+02:00

It appears as though Samsung is preparing to add one more Galaxy Tab to its growing series (one of the Galaxy Tab 5 models), as a new tablet bearing the model number SM-T377A just passed through the FCC three days ago. The new Galaxy Tab is headed for US carrier AT&T.

This Galaxy Tab will utilize both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Wi-Fi bands, run 802.11a/b/g/n, and will also support the FDD-LTE 2300 (B30) Mhz band for the first time (one of AT&T’s LTE bands). The model number, SM-T377A (close to the Tab 4 model number SM-T331) implies that this tablet could be the new Galaxy Tab 5 8.0 rather than the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 5 that bears the model number SM-T555. The source confirmed this summer that the Galaxy S6 edge+ would support Band 30 out of the box as well, and the regular Galaxy S6 and S6 edge also support Band 30 on AT&T’s network. Rumors say that the Galaxy Tab 5 7.0 (model number SM-T239)  has been tested in India and could be on its way as well.

There’s little to see at this point, but with Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A having a 4:3 aspect ratio, it’s likely that the Galaxy Tab 5 (all models) will support the same aspect ratio as well. At this point, only time will tell the nature of this new tablet, so stay tuned.
