Even if the tablet market is declining, Samsung seems to be unaffected. A new report suggests that Samsung already applied the trademarking for the Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy Tab E and Galaxy Tab J devices.
As PhoneArena notes, the Galaxy Tab A, E, and J might be a new naming scheme for the existing Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab S or r the Galaxy Note/Note Pro lineups. Meanwhile, Sammobile claims that users should expect three different size Galaxy Tab devices this year.
Samsung is also expected to release a line of Galaxy Tab 4 devices with 64-bit Snapdragon processors. It appears that the Galaxy Tab A, E, and J might end up being entry-level slates.
In another news, a new Samsung-made tablet has been leaked with high-end specs and features. Dubbed as the Galaxy Tab S Pro, the forthcoming tablet could succeed the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Samsung's current generation large sized tablet, unveiled last year.
Unlike the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, the Galaxy Tab S Pro won't have a working stylus, and hence seems to be an altogether different model. Unfortunately we still don't know anything about the hardware specs of the upcoming tablet but Samsung's Galaxy Tab S Pro won't come cheap.
Tablets shipments have declined year over year for the first time.In the fourth quarter of 2014, 76.1 million tablets shipped worldwide, according to the International Data Corporation's worldwide quarterly tablet tracker. A total of 229.6 million units shipped last year.
Apple shipped 21.4 million tablets in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Samsung shipped 11 million units.
