A new Samsung tablet has gone through FCC validation, and may thus be released soon. Judging by its model number (SM-T295), it will probably be unveiled as a Galaxy Tab A (2019) at this event. The new certifier's listing also suggests that it will be a 7-inch version of the existing Tab A 10.1, with a 4980mAh battery.

A new FCC approval for an upcoming Samsung device have surfaced online. As its model number is SM-T295, it is possible that it will be known as another Galaxy Tab A (2019) tablet on launch. There is already 1 variant of this line - the Tab A 10.1 (2019) - available. However, it seems that this new product has a screen that is 3.1 inches shorter.

An earlier leak also suggested that there is a 2nd version of the same device, the SM-T290. As the SM-T295 is seen to have cellular (4G, in fact) connectivity, it could be a WiFi-only SKU of the putative Galaxy Tab A 7 (2019). The actual FCC entry in question also specifies a 4980mAh battery. As some phones these days have comparable capacities, this isn't much to shout about in all honestly. Then again, it may appeal to those in favor of ultra-thin tablets.

Not much else is known for sure about this possible new device from Samsung. However, according to a Geekbench listing also attributed to the SM-T290/5, it runs on a quad-core SoC, which was designated Snapdragon and not Exynos. Less prepossessingly, it apparently had 2GB of RAM. This prospective 7-inch modern-day Tab A also ran Android 9, which may be overlaid by One UI. Judging by the precedent of the Tab A 10.1 (2019), it may have a metal casing with a single, rear camera in one corner.
