New, low-end Samsung tablet visits GFXBench and GeekBench, revealing specs
A Samsung tablet, codenamed SM-T561, has been caught making a pass through GFXBench, prompting us to dig a little deeper ourselves. In a matter of minutes, we discovered that the T561 also left traces over at GeekBench's own benchmarking platform, too, giving us more than enough information to conclude that the tech giant is readying a new, low-end tablet.

To start off, the slate is pretty large, with a screen measuring 9.6 inches (800 x 1280, 157 pixels per inch). The device is powered by a 1.3GHz, quad-core Spreadtrum SC8830 processor with a dual-core ARM Mali-400MP2 GPU and 1.5GB of RAM. There are 8 gigs of storage available on board. From what we're seeing, it doesn't appear as if Samsung is planning on adding any cameras to the device, which could indicate that the company will be aggressive in terms of pricing.

As for a release date, we simply have no clue, but we'll keep our ear to the ground.

I bought Dell venue 7 three months back with dual core intel, 2GB DDR2 ram, 16GB internal and 1280x800 screen with android 4.4 for INR 7800 ($124). I dont know how samsung can price it any better than this!

It's a good move ditching Snapdragon for the flagship, but it's definitely not in mid to low end. Spreadtrums are even worse than Mediatek.
