It seems like Samsung is working on a watered-down variant of the Galaxy Tab A7 — the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. The upcoming tablet has reportedly appeared on the US FCC certification site with key specifications. As per a report from 91Mobiles, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite was spotted on the FCC website with model number SM-TA220, which is allegedly similar to the Galaxy Tab’s SM-TA500 model.
According to the FCC listing, the model number SM-TA220 is the Wi-Fi-only version of the upcoming Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. However, another device reportedly codenamed SM-TA225 has also appeared on the website and is said to have LTE functionality. Though the listing does not reveal much about the A7 Lite tablet, it does give us a rough idea about what the device could have to offer.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite Specs, Features (Expected)
From the FCC listing, it is evident that the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite will have support for dual-band Wi-Fi, i.e. both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands. Bluetooth connectivity version is not known yet, but we should expect it to be at least v5.0 or above. There’s not much detail on the hardware of the tablet, but it is said to pack a 5,100mAh HQ-2565S battery that will support 15W fast charging. Moreover, the listing also reveals the size of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. The tab will measure 212.53mm in length and 124.7mm in width. Further, the diagonal length of the screen, i.e. 246.42mm, suggests a screen-size of 9.7-inch.
As said before, there is currently no information on the hardware specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, and it is too early to speculate it either. But some reports suggest that there could be some entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 4xx series SoC. It may be paired with 2/3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage. Besides, the camera specifications are expected to remain the same, underwhelming, as that of the Galaxy Tab A7. We don’t know when this tablet will launch in the market, but we expect a few more leaks coming up in the coming days.
