Samsung anticipated new models in the Galaxy Tab series - the Galaxy Tab 5 and the successor to Galaxy Tab 3 Lite - appear to be in development.
The alleged successor of the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 with model number SM-T555, and the 7-inch successor of the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite with model number SM-T116, have been spotted listed on the import/ export side Zauba last week.

According to the listing (via TechTastic), the imported unit of the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 is meant for R&D (research and development) purpose, and has been valued at Rs. 22,571. Whereas, 30 units of the 7-inch successor to the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite have come for Testing & Evaluation, indicating a possible launch soon. The price of all the units is Rs. 1,93,456, which is roughly Rs. 6,400 each. Notably, Zauba pricing is only a declared value, and usually varies from the final market pricing.

The listing doesn't reveal any specifications for the two tablets - the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 (SM-T555) and or the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite's (SM-T116).

The TechTastic report speculates that Galaxy Tab 5 could sport a 10.1-inch display similar to the Galaxy Tab 4, a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC, and Android 5.0 Lollipop.

On the other hand, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite's successor (SM-T116) according to Geekbench will sport a quad-core 1.2GHz Speadtrum SC8830, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.​
