We’ve already had a heaping helping of Samsung smartphone news to kick off the new year (with plenty more to come), but all has been quiet on the tablet front in January. At least that was the case, until SamMobile published a report on Wednesday claiming that the South Korean company is currently hard at work on four new tablets in the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note lines.

FROM EARLIER: The Galaxy S6 news we’ve been waiting for may have just leaked

This is the full list of tablets and their matching codenames, according to SamMobile:

  • Galaxy Tab AS – SM-T351
  • Galaxy Tab AL – SM-T551
  • Galaxy Tab AS – SM-T350
  • Galaxy Tab AL – SM-T550
  • Galaxy Tab AL Plus – SM-P551
  • Galaxy Tab AL Plus – SM-P550
  • Galaxy Tab AS Plus – SM-P351
  • Galaxy Tab AS Plus – SM-P350

The names appear to indicate that all of the tablets will fall under the Galaxy Tab moniker, but SamMobile thinks it has uncovered the true identities of the upcoming products.

“The Galaxy Tab AS (Small) (SM-T350/351) and the Galaxy Tab AL (Large) (SM-T550/T551) might be successors to the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 respectively. As the current Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note Pro series of tablets bear model numbers SM-P600 and SM-P900 respectively, we believe that the SM-P350/351 (Wi-Fi/Cellular) and SM-P550/551 (Wi-Fi/Cellular) tablets will be mid-range devices under the Galaxy Note series.”

If Samsung truly has just begun work on the tablets, we might not see them until after Mobile World Congress in March. The tablets are expected to ship later this year running Android 5.0 Lollipop.
