A recent leak may have generated confusion, if also some potential enthusiasm, at the prospect of the first in a new line of Samsung Galaxy M-series tablets. However, the device in question has now undergone testing at the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), which apparently reveals it is actually just another smartphone. Nevertheless, it is still touted to launch with an internal storage upgrade.

Recently, 91Mobiles published a leak that, as it claimed, was provided to it in conjunction with the name "Galaxy Tab M62". This led to speculation that this device would be the first of a whole new kind of Samsung tablet. However, it now seems this source may have been mistaken, or perhaps had their info misinterpreted somehow.

The FCC has now given a new Samsung device called the SM-M625F the go-ahead. This probably proves the Galaxy M62 does indeed exist and will launch soon; however, the regulator also unambiguously (and repeatedly) refers to the device as a phone.

The new leak also shows that it is 4G/LTE-only and will ship with the M51's colossal 7,000mAh battery. The "M62" also has Bluetooth 5.0 and a microSD slot (albeit one for up to 64GB cards only). Then again, all this new information leaves another main hypothesis about the product unimpugned. Therefore, the phone could still debut with up to 256GB of internal storage.

This amount of space is unusual in the Galaxy M series, and could make it a worthwhile future buy for many consumers. It is said to launch in India as well in the US, which it may do at some point later in 2021.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
