Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Tab S3 earlier this year. Now a new leak now reveals that Samsung may debut a new tablet, which could launch by the end 2017. A mysterious tablet bearing the model number SM-T385 was spotted online, bearing mid-range specs.

The unknown Samsung device was listed on GFXBench and offers a peek into some features that the upcoming Samsung tablet will sport. The SM-T385 model number and the specs of the device hint that the unnamed tablet could be the 2017 version of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablet as the 2016 iteration of the device had the model number SM-T350.

Specs of the new tablet

The GFXBench listing revealed that the yet-to-be-announced tablet sports an 8-inch display similar to the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2016).


The listing also showed that the tablet has a 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution. Moreover, the mysterious tablet is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset, clocked at 1.4 GHz, and an Adreno 308 GPU.

The upcoming tablet sports 2GB of RAM and internal storage of 16GB. The listing details that only around 11GB of memory can be used after Android and other system-related apps are installed. Apart from this, the listing also details the camera specifications of the device.

The purported 2017 version of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablet will sport an 8-megapixel primary shooter and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. The primary camera has added features like HDR, flash, autofocus, and face detection.

Both the cameras can reportedly record videos at native 1080p resolutions.

The battery size and capability were not revealed through the listing. The mystery device was shown running the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.

Price of Samsung’s new tablet?

The features and specs of the listed device suggest that Samsung is targeting budget buyers. While the Galaxy Tab S3 is a premium option and targets high-end device users, the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is for people who want a tablet that is utility oriented, but not very expensive.

The pricing for the device remains a mystery and it is anticipated that the tablet may be priced similarly to the 2016 model of the Galaxy Tab A 8.0. For now, tablet enthusiasts have to wait till the company officially announces the device.


A possibility exists that Samsung unveils the tablet at its IFA event in the coming months. However, just because a device has surfaced on a benchmarking site does not mean that it will eventually be released.
