The yet-unofficial Samsung SM-T280 tablet has been in the news a lot over the past few weeks. Most of the time, it’s been thought to be sold by the Korean company as the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab E. However, it now looks like it will be called Galaxy Tab A instead.
That’s because a Polish online retailer has already listed the SM-T280 up for pre-order. And it’s calling it Tab A indeed. The device is priced at PLN 599, which at the moment translates into approximately $150 or 138. The tablet will apparently become available on March 8, which is exactly one week from today.
This Galaxy Tab A comes with a 7-inch 1,280×800 touchscreen, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, a 5 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing unit, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 4,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its dimensions are 186.9 x 108.8 x 8.7 mm, and it weighs 283g.
Its specs line up perfectly with past leaks, if you ignore the fact that the rumors got the name wrong. Now that it’s already up for pre-order in the EU, perhaps Samsung will finally announce it soon.
Thanks for the tip, Kozo!
