Apart from the Galaxy Tab Active
, things have been pretty quiet on Samsung's tablet front recently. The maker might've spread itself thin with its smartphone releases over the second half of 2014, but we've not seen a new batch of Samsung since last June.
If certain rumors and speculations are to be believed, however, Samsung might be prepping to release a new batch of slates. According to SamMobile, Samsung is actively working on a a few different tablet versions.
These are the Galaxy Tab AS (SM-T350), Galaxy Tab AS (SM-T351), Galaxy Tab AL (SM-T550), Galaxy Tab AL (SM-T551), Galaxy Tab AL Plus (SM-P550), Galaxy Tab AL Plus (SM-P551), Galaxy Tab AS Plus (SM-P350), Galaxy Tab AS Plus (SM-P351).
Judging from the model numbers, we are most probably dealing with the successors to the Galaxy Tab 4 line of slates.
SamMobile speculates that both versions of the Galaxy Tab AS might end up being successors to the 7" Galaxy Tab 4
, whereas the Galaxy Tab AL would likely be the follow-up to either the 8-inch
or the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4
. As far as the rest of the slates are concerned, these could very well be Samsung's new Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note Pro slates. Who knows, we shouldn't rule out the possibility that these might be successors to the more refined Galaxy Tab S 8.4
and Tab S 10.5
There is no possible release date for the slates in question, but they'll certainly land in one of the following quarters.
