Based on leaks and certification listings, we have been reporting about the impending launch of the Galaxy SM-T595 tablet for some time now. While the official moniker of this tablet hasn’t been confirmed, it’s being referred to as the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) because of the model number and Samsung’s naming pattern.
The tablet has now moved one step closer to launch by obtaining the FCC certification. Earlier this month, the same tablet has been spotted on the Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance websites undergoing necessary approvals. As is the case with these certifications, they haven’t revealed anything significant about the tablet.
Will come with a USB Type-C port
The FCC documentation says that the tablet will come with a USB Type-C port and the Wi-Fi alliance listing says that it will run Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. Other than these small bits of information, nothing much is known the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) so far. Given that Samsung is already working on a flagship tablet and that the previous Galaxy Tab A 10.1 was a mid-range device, the 2018 model will also probably be a mid-range offering.
Last week we exclusively reported that the upcoming Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) and Galaxy Tab S4 would launch in Black and Gray color options. Our sources also told us that these devices might launch in July or August. The flurry of certifications does hints at the possibility that the tablet might see a formal launch in July, before the rumored Galaxy Note 9 launch event in August.
