This slate surfaced on GFXBench under the codename SM-T835 featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB internal storage. An IFA launch might be in the cards, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Samsung's budget line of Android tablets is expected to get a new member later this year. The device with model number SM-T385 recently surfaced on GFXBench and some unconfirmed rumors claim it should be unveiled as Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) in early September, during the IFA 2017 trade show.
The GFXBench database entry reveals a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP and 8 MP cameras, as well as a 1,280X800- pixel, 8-inch display. The list of connectivity features includes the usual - WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS. The operating system on board is Android 7.0 Nougat.
A microSD slot should also be present, next to a battery to offer at least 4,000 mAh. The price will probably be in the $200-$250 USD range. There are some details missing from the GFXBench database entry mentioned earlier, so we should expect for this slate to become official.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
