The Samsung Galaxy Tab series range has not managed to cross over to the world of 64-bit chipsets, but it seems that all of that will change with word going around that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 will be on the receiving end of a Snapdragon 410-based refresh in due time. In fact, this particular chipset has already seen action in a handful of its Galaxy A devices, in addition to a slew of other devices. Apart from the possible change in its chipset, nothing else looked to have been altered. How do we know of this upcoming chipset refresh? GFX Bench, of course.
GFX Bench has details on a 1,280 x 800 pixel display, where the tablet will be accompanied by the likes of 1.5GB RAM as well as 16GB of internal memory. Not only that, it will come equipped with a quad-core Cortex A53 and Adreno 306 setup, and if you were looking forward to Android 5.0 Lollipop, you would be disappointed, as it will arrive with Android 4.4.4 KitKat right out of the box.
Other than that, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 will arrive with a 3.15MP camera located at the back, allowing one to capture video in 720p resolution, while the front-facing camera packs a 1.2MP sensor. There will be no NFC support and mobile connectivity, although Snapdragon 410 does offer a similar 150Mbps LTE speed of its 32-bit predecessor just in case there is an LTE version down the road.
