A new variant of the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 has surfaced on GFXBench with model number SM-T333. The listing reveals a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor, though the rest of the specifications remain the same — 8-inch WXGA (1280×800 pixels) display, 1.5GB of RAM, 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB internal storage, microSD card support, and connectivity options include 3G support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The publication spotted another tablet with SM-T533 model number at the Bluetooth SIG certification website. The tablet features a 10.1-inch display and comes with a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor. It is likely an upgrade to the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1.
The company’s move to refresh models with the 64-bit processor will enable the device to utilize the Android 5.0 Lollipop software, which supports and works best with 64-bit CPU architecture. The Snapdragon 410 processor, which also supports LTE, is the same chipset which the company used in the recently launched Galaxy A and Galaxy E smartphone lineups.
