Samsung can keep the launch of the Galaxy Tab A9 Plus (or A9+) a secret no longer, thanks to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and its use of the upcoming Android tablet's full product name in its registration. The slate is now depicted as having much lower-end specs than, say, the Tab S9 FE, yet may be able to offer 5G-powered entertainment at a good price for all that.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ might owe the new symbol in its name to its ability to use 5G, according to its new FCC registration. The regulatory authority has unequivocally identified the tablet by this name as well as its model number (SM-X210) in approving it for sale ahead of its now certain debut.

The A9+ is thought to owe its new connectivity to the Snapdragon 695 SoC, which might also be responsible for the tablet's dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth with BLE5 specs. Accordingly, the slate seems to have almost affordable smartphone specs thus far - however, TÜV Rheinland has now also assessed the tablet and found it to have the same 7,040mAh rated capacity as its A8 predecessor.

The Tab A9+ can also use the same EP-T1510 power adapter, restricted to an output of 15W, to recharge that battery. Then again, those slight compromises in terms of upgrades might confer a particularly reasonable price on the new Samsung tablet on its launch - plus, it might have Android 13 out of the box too.
