The Samsung "Galaxy Tab A8 2021" tablet's super-budget specs emerge in a new leak

Samsung is rumored to launch a new version of the Galaxy Tab A8 before the end of 2021. Now, it has allegedly leaked onto Geekbench with specs to match the cost-effective looks of the potential tablet's most up-to-date renders. Should they prove accurate, it seems the slate derives its processing power from an unusual source.

The famous tipster Evan Blass has posted renders of what might be the (profoundly bezel-ridden) front panel of a new Android tablet to Twitter. As he did so in response to a GSMArena article about the alleged Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 that is slated to appear on the market by the end of the year, as its name suggests.

This putative Galaxy Tab A7 successor is thought to have a ~10-inch display of 1080p in resolution at the least. Now, according to a new Geekbench leak, it might be driven by a processor of what would be an unusual choice for Samsung. The OEM normally goes with silicon from Qualcomm when it does not use its own first-party Exynos chipsets; however, it seems the Tab A8 2021 may stand out with a CPU from Unisoc instead.

Its specs suggest the processor in question might be a Tiger T618 from the emerging chipmaker. It is an octa-core processor with a top clock of 2GHz. It might be paired to 3GB of RAM in the Galaxy Tab A8 2021 (or SM-X20x), which might have SKUs with 4G/LTE (SM-X205) or Wi-Fi-only (SM-X200) connectivity. On the other hand, Samsung has yet to acknowledge any of these rumors with an official announcement.

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.
