A new Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2018) could be coming to US carriers

03 July 2018

While we've been caught up in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 rumors another new slate by Samsung has received certification with the Wi-Fi alliance.

The device carries the model name SM-T387, which sounds like a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017)'s T380 model number and suggests a refresh for 2018.

It's possible that the device is getting a US release soon. If we go by usual Samsung practice then the SM-T387 model is likely an LTE model. So we can assume that the SM-T385V is headed to Verizon, SM-T387T is intended for T-Mobile, SM-T387A (and SM-T387VK) will be for AT&T and the SM-T387R4 will show up on US Cellular's network.

Of course, all of this is just speculation at this point. The only thing the Wi-Fi certification tells us for sure is that the devices run Android 8.1.

An eventual Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2018) makes sense. Earlier last month a Samsung SM-T595 received the same Wi-Fi certifications, pointing to a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) in the works too - clearly Samsung isn't giving up on the tablet market just yet.
