Samsung refreshes its Galaxy Tab 4 tablet line with 64-bit chips


The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 both recently showed up on the GFXBench site revealing something new. Both slates were powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset. And to complete the hat trick, Sammy is apparently stuffing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 with a 64-bit chip as well.

Instead of using the Snapdragon 410 employed in the other two slabs, Samsung plans on putting the Marvell Armada Mobile PXA1908 inside the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0. The quad-core Cortex A-53 chip will also be found inside the Samsung Xcover3. With the change in silicon, the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 tablet gets a new model number (SM-T239) and a new name (Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Lite 7.0 LTE).

Using a Marvell chipset is not exactly foreign to this particular tablet. The Marvell PXA 1088, a predecessor to the PXA 1908, was used in the Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0. The PXA 1908 supports TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, 3G, TD-SCDMA and GSM.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Lite 7.0 LTE is expected to begin life with Android 4.4.4 pre-installed. We still need to hear from Samsung about all of these changes. At that time, we'd expect the manufacturer to toss us information related to pricing and availability.
