New Samsung tablet, powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset, appears on Geekbench
Samsung has a new tablet in the works according to a Geekbench test run on the SM-T587P. Powering the slate is the Snapdragon 625 SoC with an octa-core 2.02GHz CPU (and the Adreno 506 GPU inside). 2GB of RAM is listed on the test, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. This could be a new version of the low-end Samsung Galaxy Tab E series.

While the Geekbench test doesn't give away as much information as other benchmark tests, the model number is a good clue. The Galaxy Tab E covers model numbers SM-T560, SM-T561 and SM-T567. In addition, the first generation models come with 1.5GB of RAM.

The SM-T587P managed to score 808 on the single-core test and 3180 on the multi-core test. Not exactly results to jump up and down about. Back in July, the same configuration performed better with a single-core score of 903 and a multi-core score of 4207. Hopefully some more information about the tablet surfaces soon.

The SD625 is crap. Even the old (but gold) SD801 would be a better deal!

What is the point of making a low end tablet at this point! Apple iPad pro is phenomenal and people love the surface as well. Makes no sense to put out cheap tablets with the note 7 blowing up and losing so much money. If one of these cheap tablets blows up Samsung will be in trouble!

For people that cannot afford a 600-1000 tablet. My grandma loves her tablets. Seriously. She has her accidental drops and what not. Even with a case it's lucky to last her a year. Samsung obviously has a battery supplier issue that they will address. Luckily LG also makes lower end tabs.

Guess the tablet market just not doing well. Samsung never put their flagship specs in their tablets.
