Samsung is all set for a busy year ahead. Two of Samsung’s tablets have landed on Indian shores for research and development purposes. The information about these devices comes to us from the Indian Export-Import tracking site Zauba. A couple of days back, Samsung Galaxy S6 also made its way to India for R &D purposes, and now we have two more devices there.
According to the reports that are out, Samsung will be launching two tablets in 2015. One can be a part of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 line-up, if the alleged specifications are something to go by. They seem to be working on a 10-inch tablet, SM-T555, which is priced at $354, this is not the retail price of the device but does give an idea that it will be a high-end device. Lately, a new trend is being seen where manufacturers are working on big screened tablets, it looks as if the functionality of the tablets is going to re-defined and this redefinition is going to start from the tablets size. A very good example of this aspect is that Toshiba recently launched a 24-inch tablet which is meant for the business sector, Apple is working on a 12-inch iPad, so for companies to make their tablet’s a success they would have to brand them as having a different functionality from phablets/smartphones with which it shares a lot of features.
The second tablet is priced at $101 at Zauba’s site. The SM-T116 is going to be a 7-inch tablet and 30 units have arrived in India for testing. The specifications that the GeekBench have given for SM-T116 indicate that it will be entry-level device. The tablet will be powered by quad-core 1.2 GHz Speadtrum SC8830, Android KitKat 4.4.4 and will have a 1 GB RAM. More detail about the tablets is not out yet, we will keep you updated on the developments.
No other information about the launch dates, what the tablets will look like or its pricing are not out yet. We hope that Samsung does offer something different with the new tablets, especially SM-T555, which according to reports will be high-end device. Great specifications and added functionality associated with the tablet can boost the dismal sales graph for Samsung in 2015. Let’s see if the new tablets dazzle or just plain old bore consumers by offering nothing new.
