Samsung sold more than 30 million tablets last year, thanks to the remote learning and work-from-home boom. The Galaxy Tab A7 and the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite were among its best-selling tablets. Now, the company seems to be readying a trimmed-down version of the Galaxy Tab A7.
The SM-T225, an entry-level tablet, has appeared in Bluetooth SIG’s database. The certification document confirms that it will be launched as the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and features Bluetooth 5.0 (with LE). A few weeks ago, some specifications of the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite were leaked. It reportedly sports an 8.7-inch screen, a slim metal design, and offers an immersive multimedia consumption experience.
The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite’s Geekbench listing had revealed earlier that it could come equipped with the MediaTek’s Helio P22T processor (MT8768WT) and 3GB RAM. Going by the FCC certification that surfaced earlier, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite features a USB Type-C port and a headphone jack. The TÜV Rheinland certification had revealed that the tablet is powered by a 5,100mAh battery and supports 15W fast charging.
It is being reported that the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite could launch sometime in June 2021 alongside the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite. The Galaxy Tab S7 Lite has a 12.4-inch QHD LTPS LCD screen and a variant with 5G connectivity. The mid-range tablet could use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor and 4GB RAM. The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite could launch with Android 11.
