A Samsung SM-T505 has been spotted on Geekbench 5; based on this model number, it is now projected to be the Galaxy Tab A7 (2020) on its launch. Its new benchmarking results include the novel Qualcomm code-name bengal, which may be a lower-end, albeit new, Snapdragon platform on its own debut.

The Samsung SM-T505 has just become the latest on an extremely short list to exhibit the motherboard identifier bengal on Geekbench 5. There is evidence that it may refer to a Snapdragon 665 successor that Qualcomm has in the works.

This SM-T505 also has 3GB of RAM, suggesting that it may be a profoundly budget new Samsung tablet on its launch. However, it may also be one that will run Android 10 out of the box, at least. It is currently speculated that it will join the Galaxy Tab A series as a real-life product, and will fill the role of the 7-inch variant of the same in 2020.

As to its potential performance, it has gotten slightly better scores out of bengal compared to OPPO's CPH2095 or Vivo's TD2002 on the same benchmark. These other 2 devices, which have done a little better than Qualcomm's apparent reference device in turn, are currently thought to be cost-effective phones with the same platform on their own debuts.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
