Samsung launched the Android convertible tablet, Galaxy Tab S4, in India last year along with the Galaxy Note 9.

It is likely to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5.

Running Android 9 Pie, the benchmark listing hints at a Snapdragon 855 octa-core SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. The alleged Galaxy Tab S5 logged a score of 3,506 in single-core test, and 9,788 in multi-core test. Sadly, the listing doesn’t reveal any other features.

The Galaxy Tab S4 was billed as an Apple iPad Pro competitor. Samsung also added a number of features like support for S Pen, facial recognition and DEX to make the device attractive for business users.
