Benchmarks for an as yet unannounced Galaxy Tablet have popped up on a popular testing website.

Mobile World Congress (MWC) is only weeks away and while Samsung are expected to announce plenty of big hitters such as the Galaxy S7, you can also bet there will be plenty of budget and mid-range handsets on the horizon. This latest rumour comes courtesy of GFXBench and the model number is SM-T819. This points to a potential Galaxy Tab handset, though the innards are surprisingly mid-range.

The benchmarks listing details a device with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and Android 6.0.1 with the obligatory TouchWiz overlay. The display is expected to be 9.6-inch and carry a resolution of 2048 x 1536 display, which isn’t too far off the current larger Tab S2. An 8-megapixel rear-facing camera will also be included, while a 2-megapixel front snapper will take care of the selifes. In terms of processing power, the listing says that the tablet will include an octa-core SoC running at 1.8GHz. Performance-wise, this points to the decidedly mid-range Snapdragon 652.

As Samsung continues to dilute the Galaxy name with more affordable devices, we wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be true. The 652 is still a very capable chip regardless and, for most moderate users, should be enough to get decent performance levels at the native resolution.
