Samsung plans to upgrade its Galaxy Tab 4 lineup with 64-bit chips, it's claimed.
According to GSM Arena, the 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset will power the Tab 4 10.1 and Tab 4 8.0, while the Tab 4 7.0, which was reportedly imported into India last week for testing and packs a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, will get the Marvell Armada Mobile PXA1908, the same chipset likely in the Galaxy Xcover 3.
Keep in mind the PXA1908 is the successor to the PXA1088 found in the the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, and the new one supports both TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, 3G, TD-SCDMA, and GSM. That means it's compatible with carriers in China too.
Apart from spec, the report claimed the updated Tab 4 7.0, which is thought to have the model number SM-T239, might technically go by Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Lite 7.0 LTE and will therefore not be considered a Galaxy Tab 5 model. The upcoming tablet is also supposed to launch with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed.
There's no word yet when that launch date will occur... but Mobile World Congress is just around the corner.
