All-new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Advanced has its specs leaked via GFXBench

Oh, Sammy—you just love to keep the products rolling in, don't you? No matter what kind of device or specs our geeky impulses crave, there's generally a Samsung product for that. Adding to the South Korean maestro's wealth of hardware already unveiled so far this year, a brand new 10-inch tablet could be on the horizon. Spotted on GFXBench by the folks at Polish blog Tablety, the slate looks set to combine a fairly moderate array of internal goodness along with the holy grail of Android Marshmallow. 

Bearing the model number SM-T536, the slab will apparently be called the Galaxy Tab 4 Advanced. Though random benchmarks should by no means be taken as gospel, a fair amount of GFXBench-sourced information turns out to be true. With all that said, what will the Tab 4 Advanced have in its locker? 

As aforementioned, it'll be relatively decent, though it's certainly not going to be spec'd to the gills like a number of Samsung's other tablet efforts. If this new info is accurate, we can expect the Tab 4 Advanced to include a 1280 x 800 display over a 10.1-inch canvas, and an octa-core SoC along with a healthy 2 gigs of RAM. There may also be 32 GB of expandable storage, a 5-megapixel main camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing effort that doesn't sound too well-equipped for a generation that loves its selfies. 

Software-wise, the SM-T536 will apparently get the very latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, inclusive of Doze, app permissions, Google Now on Tap and the countless other bells and whistles of the Big G's latest firmware. All in all, it seems like the Tab 4 Advanced will offer a modest specs bump on the pre-existing Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, which first appeared in 2014. 

We'll keep you posted on any official announcement of this mid-range tablet.

Nothing advanced about it. Samsung is just having a laugh, releasing the same tablet over and over while neglecting their current customers and leaving them on ancient Android versions.

While not packing cutting edge specs, it will probably be packed with bloatware that customers can't get rid of and eventually force you to delete the apps you really want to use on your tablet... just like on my 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 which I soon plan to replace, likely with something not from Samsung for that reason. And I am not a Samsung hater - I also rock a Note 4, a Tab S 8.4, and an S7 Edge, and have bought a Tab S 8.4 and S6 Edge for my wife. I like Samsung's technology but I really dislike - REALLY DISLIKE - their bloatware!

Why do they keep releasing mediocre tablets?

Tablets are not really an all-purpose super multitasking device. People have different main purpose when buying an affordable tablet, either for casual games or for reading. I dig this 10.1" rumor, just gonna use it for reading comics and browsing web since I'm not impressed with my old ipad's laggy safari browser anymore.

I have a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and was just wondering why not add more RAM, have a better processor and display but oh well.

Umm, because folks don't need supercharged processors and battery sucking display panels as nearly as much as smartphones. RAM, maybe. But this is on MARSHMALLOW, thank God. They primarily need a larger canvas to read DC comics, watch Kimmy Schmidt, and see if anyone attacked their Clash of Clans base, all with HUGE battery life.

R&D budget well spent on this one.

Yup. Unlike Apple's engineering and design team who relentlessly spent sleepless night in completely re-inventing the iPad mini 3 from iPad mini 2 ground-up. Samsung lacks Apple's dedication and perseverance Nice day, brosephinette !

But u have to give It to Apple, they have changed a lot more since the original iPad compared to the original Sammy tab

You do realize this is not a flagship product right ? That's your perspective. In my view, I don't recall any ground breaking changes to iPads other then the usual spec bump. However, for Samsung I do remember how excited I was when they managed to release their Amoled panels for tablets. Also, their dual boot with Windows and Android.

I agree with ipad changing alot but try getting the high-end samsung or sony's tablet, those are real monsters and lag-free even at rough multitasking.

Actually no. The original iPad was more than good enough, especially for the time. The original GTab was horrendous with a capital H. iPads have consistently remained good, and the Tab S2 is too.

How exciting, another crappy tablet from Samsung. Just what the tablet market needs, more overpriced budget trash to confuse consumers.

Well it seems Samsung just have to use new packaging for the Tab 4 to make it Tab 4 advanced.
