Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 Plus surfaces with Snapdragon 695 as smaller Galaxy Tab A9 also turns up
Early signs of the Galaxy Tab A9 series have surfaced online. Based on the details that have emerged so far, Samsung will release two models, likely the Galaxy Tab A9 and Galaxy Tab A9 Plus. While the former's name has not appeared anywhere yet, the UAE's Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) has linked SM-X216B to the marketing name Galaxy Tab A9 Plus.
Samsung's model nomenclature confirms that the SM-X216B features a 5G chipset. Geekbench reinforces this assertion, with 'ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 1 part 3393 revision 1' an identifier for the Snapdragon 695 5G. Incidentally, Motorola has sourced the same chipset for the Moto G84 5G, which will launch next week in September. As the screenshots below show, Samsung has paired the Snapdragon 695 5G with 4 GB of RAM, as well as Android 13.
Meanwhile, Roland Quandt has stumbled across a photo of the SM-X115N, likely the smaller Galaxy Tab A9. Purportedly, the Galaxy Tab A9 will house a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 15 W wired charging within a 210.7 x 124.7 mm housing. Other details about both tablets are unknown for now, including a release date. However, we would not be surprised to see the Galaxy Tab A9 series arrive alongside the Galaxy Tab S9 FE series, which is rumoured to be on track for an early autumn 2023 launch.
