Samsung Galaxy Tab S5 Benchmark Scores Leaked Via Geekbench, Launch Imminent
Korean electronics giant Samsung is one of the few brands that still makes Android tablets. Despite the sharp decline in the sales of Android tablets over the past few years, devices from the company have seen a positive response from the market. Samsung launched its current flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S4 last year, which has since been overdue for an upgrade. Now, the successor to the device, purportedly called the Galaxy Tab S5 has been leaked on benchmarking platform Geekbench. It features top tier specifications and is expected to be marketed as a full fledged computing device.

The model number of Samsung’s upcoming tablet mentioned on the benchmarking platform Geekbench is SM-T865. This coincides with that of its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab S4 with the model number SM-T835. It is thus believed that the listing is of the latest offering in the company’s flagship tablet lineup, allegedly called the Galaxy Tab S5. The listing reveals it will run on the 7nm Snapdragon 855 SoC; which is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 640 GPU. For memory, it will have 6GB of RAM, but more variants with high RAM capacity are expected. The Galaxy Tab S5 will run on the current generation Android 9 Pie OS which may be skinned with Samsung’s latest OneUI.
With a base clock speed of 1.78GHz, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5 managed to receive a single core score of 3506 on Geekbench. The multi core score of the device has been revealed to be 9788; both the scores falls in line to the ones obtained by other smartphones sporting the Snapdragon 855 SoC, like the OnePlus 7, Xiaomi Mi 9, and the Redmi K20 Pro. Unfortunately, other specifications and the launch date of the tablet are not known yet; but it is expected that Samsung will launch it alongside the Galaxy Note 10 in the month of August.
