Geekbench 5's database has just turned up a new entry for a "Samsung SM-T307U". This model number may be for a tablet, in which case it would be a slate running on the Exynos 7885 processor and 3GB of RAM. As if to underpin this putative upcoming device's bargain nature, it is described as running Android 9.0 (Pie) rather than the newer 10 version.

A recently-added set of Geekbench results appears to be for a new Samsung device called the SM-T307U. Model numbers along these lines are often applied to tablets from this OEM, particularly those of the lower-end Galaxy Tab A series. There are several other clues included in the new leak that suggest this is indeed the case.

For a start, the "new tablet" appears to run Android 9.0 (Pie), in a year that even entry-level Galaxy A smartphones are known or rumored to run on a more up-to-date OS. The "samsung SM-T307U" also has the Exynos 7885 (referred to here as 'universal7885' as it often is on this benchmark) SoC, as well as only 3GB of RAM.

Therefore, should this listing prove valid, it seems Samsung will have a very well-priced tablet on the way. To date, there is no further word on this potential slate's other specs, display size included. However, separate leaks suggest it will be called the Galaxy Tab A4S on its launch.
