Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 2022 leaks with minor changes from 2020 predecessor
Details about a newer Galaxy Tab A7 have emerged online, courtesy of @_snoopytech_. Referred to as the Galaxy Tab A7 2022 by the leaker, the unreleased tablet is the spitting image of the model that Samsung launched in 2020. Potentially, Samsung may even be re-using the current model's shell, as well as its 10.4-inch display.
Hence, the Galaxy Tab A7 2022 has a 1,200 x 2,000-pixel native resolution, plus 5 MP front and 8 MP rear-facing cameras. Additionally, the tablet will start at 32 GB of expandable storage and 3 GB of RAM, matching its predecessor. For reference, Samsung also sells the current Galaxy Tab A7 with 4 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage.
Moreover, @_snoopytech_ claims that the Galaxy Tab A7 2022 relies on a 7,040 mAh battery, another feature carried over from the 2022 model. However, the leaker adds that the former will utilise the UNISOC Tiger T618, a 12 nm SoC with 8 CPU cores and an ARM Mali-G52 MP2 GPU. According to our database, the UNISOC Tiger T618 should deliver up to 12% performance improvements over the Snapdragon 662 found in its predecessor.
Ultimately, those figures do not represent much of a performance gain in two years. The Galaxy Tab A7 2022 is expected to launch for less than the Galaxy Tab A7 2020 did. While the latter still costs €229 in the Eurozone, @_snoopytech_ asserts that Samsung will price the former at €199. Presumably, Samsung will also sell a more expensive LTE variant, as it does with the Galaxy Tab A7 2020. A release date is unknown for the time being, although we imagine that Samsung will launch the tablet with One UI 4.1 based on Android 12.
