Samsung's Galaxy Tab A8 (2021) launch is all but confirmed in its latest leak
Samsung is thought to have a product called the Galaxy Tab A8 (possibly 2021) in the works. It has allegedly been designed to have a 10.4-inch display - and to be markedly affordable, as it has been depicted as having 3GB of RAM in a recent benchmarking leak. It also indicated a lack of Android 12 in the upcoming device, even though the OEM is now also making strides with a version of One UI based on this newer OS.
This detail has just been corroborated in the course of a new certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance. It concerns model number previously associated with the Tab A8: the Samsung SM-X205. Accordingly, the wireless connectivity authority now effectively links the two conclusively for the first time.
Earlier tips have also suggested that the X205 is a Tab A8 variant with an active SIM-card slot, something else the Wi-Fi Alliance now seems to effectively confirm in part of the wording found in its new certification. It is referred to as "multi-mode (Wi-Fi and other)" (and also as a smartphone in parts of the documentation, even though it is a tablet in others).
This, then, is a definitive hint that the Galaxy Tab A8 can support mobile data in at least 1 SKU. As to the others, they should still be able to manage transfers over Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi Direct. Therefore, little remains unknown about the upcoming slate at this point - except for the price, of course.
