Key specs for Samsung’s budget S Pen tablet (SM-P615) emerge
About a month ago we brought you exclusive news about a new tablet being developed by Samsung. For now, it’s known by the model numbers SM-P610 and SM-P615. The latter has been spotted on Geekbench earlier this week, offering a first sneak preview on some of its specifications.
According to the benchmark, the SM-P615 will be powered by the Exynos 9611 chipset. The same solution has been previously employed by the Galaxy M30s and Galaxy A50s smartphones. We’ve also known for about a month that the mid-range tablet at had should be available in 64GB and 128GB flavors, and that it could be paired with an S Pen. As expected, these details go by unmentioned by the benchmarking application.
The chipset works alongside 4GB of RAM and the tablet seems to be running Android 10 out of the box, which is definitely good news. The SM-P610 / SM-P615 shapes up to be a budget tablet and it most likely won’t be prioritized in terms of early firmware updates. It’s good to see that Samsung is keen on leaving Android 9 behind with every one of its upcoming product releases.
The SM-P615 is likely the LTE-enabled variant of the Wi-Fi-only SM-P610, but as yet, we don’t have any information as to when either one of these models will hit the shelves. We suspect Samsung will introduce this budget tablet without much fanfare, so stick around and we’ll keep you posted as soon as we learn more.
