A new midrange Galaxy tablet inches closer to launch

Despite Google abandoning Android tablets, Samsung continues to make plenty of them. This year alone, the Korean company has launched the Galaxy Tab S5e, the Tab S6, Tab A 10.1 (2019), and a bunch of budget devices. Going by the Wi-Fi Alliance and FCC certifications, we may soon see another Galaxy tablet joining the list.

A Samsung tablet with the model number SM-T545 has just secured Wi-Fi Alliance and FCC certifications, indicating an imminent launch. Once a device reaches this stage, it is usually a matter of weeks before it goes official. We haven’t seen any leaks about this tablet so far to know what it brings to the table.

A device with the same model number was spotted on the Geekbench website a couple of months ago. The benchmark showed Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and Android Pie OS onboard – all of which points to a midrange tablet. While a benchmark listing may not be the most reliable source for device specs, even the model number indicates a midrange offering.

Samsung is supposedly working on a 10-inch Galaxy Tab Active, according to a report from June. The company also filed trademark applications for the ‘Tab Active Pro’ moniker. We don’t know if the SM-T545 model has anything to do with this, but there is a possibility it might be the Galaxy Tab Active Pro.
