Mysterious Samsung tablet appears at the FCC

Those rumors about Samsung possibly launching four new tablets in early 2014 might be on the right track. As we were checking out the newest entries into the FCC's database, we came across the Samsung SM-T520, which is being described as a "Portable Tablet". 

Specs are a mystery at this time, as it is often the case with gadgets we find at the FCC, yet we do know that the device supports Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, and Bluetooth Low Energy. Its physical measurements are being listed as well – the Samsung SM-T520 is 243mm wide by 172mm tall, which makes it large enough to accommodate a screen of about 10 inches in diagonal. Our guess is that the tablet runs Android, even though no OS name or version are being mentioned in the documents.

Looking up the model name online gives us no further clues as to what the SM-T520 might bring to the table. We can just confirm that it has been Wi-Fi certified, and that's pretty much it. Hopefully, we'll know more about this mysterious device by the time CES kicks off in January.
