Reports have been surfacing from quite sometime now which claim that Samsung is working on a budget friendly tablet for its customers. Although the name of the tablet is yet a mystery, rumors are that it might be sold under the name of Galaxy Tab E in the U.S while the customers in U.K will get the same tablet carrying the name Galaxy Tab A.
Thanks to Evan Blass, we now have a new image featuring the upcoming Galaxy Tab A/E. This budget friendly tablet will be featuring a 7″ display while being powered by a 1.3GHz Quad-core processor. Apart from that, the device will be carrying a 1.5GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5 megapixel rear and a 2MP front camera. We will also be getting a expandable storage capability via microSD slot. This tablet will be powered by a 4000 mAh battery.
Furthermore we are expecting to see Android Marshmallow running on the device which will be amazing if we consider its mid-ranged specifications. Marshmallow features many change from its predecessor. Some of the major changes are described ahead. Firstly, Doze – this feature simply puts the smartphone into a ‘deeper sleep’ when it hasn’t been used for a prolonged period of time. As a result, the battery life of the smartphone is drastically increased. Moving on the next big change: Now on Tap – Marshmallow can predict your needs by a simple long press on the home button that provides quick access to learn more about the hang out spot or how to get there. You can use this feature to search for restaurants and even the type of food it serves. Last but not the least, the all new app drawer – as suggested by the heading, Marshmallow comes with a completely redesigned app drawer. Main improvements include the app search mechanism. You can scroll around with alphabet scrolling and can pin you favorite apps on the top to gain easy and fast access.
