Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 possibly spotted in 8-inch variety

When Samsung revealed the third iteration of its Galaxy Tab line, it was met with a somewhat underwhelming reception. But the Korean firm’s never held back on trying out different shapes and sizes.

This makes this latest leak — of a reported 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 — at least plausible, and definitely not surprising. The reported resolution of 1,280 x 800 and that of the 7-inch Tab 3 (1,024 x 600) certainly match the mystery profiles we saw earlier this year. Think it looks just like theGalaxy Note 8.0? You’d be mostly right, bar a few details like a thinner side bezel and the top camera / speaker arrangement. SamMobile claims to have the full specification, which includes a general feature boost all round over the 7-inch version: a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB on board storage (expandable up to 64GB) plus 5- and 1.3-megapixel cameras, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 4,450 mAh battery. WiFi and 3G versions get mentioned, so all bases covered if you really don’t want that S pen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 hits the FCC with 7-inch screen and WiFi in tow

Just a little over a week after Samsung introduced the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 to the world, and it’s already made its way to the FCC for approval.

There’s not much to say here that we don’t know about, but as expected, this particular model is WiFi-only, with no LTE or voice-enabled bands mentioned in the documentation. As a reminder, the Tab 3 has relatively modest specs with a WSVGA (1,024 x 600) TFT screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 8GB or 16GB of storage (expandable up to 64GB), a 4,000 mAh battery, a rear 3-megapixel camera and a front 1.3-megapixel one. It’s set to ship with Android 4.1 some time this month, with a 3G version following in June. Though we’re not sure of its exact drop date, we hope it’s after acertain tech conference next week for the sake of our sanity. Continue reading

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 announced, joins the Android tablet line-up with a 7-inch screen

If an 8-inch stylus-enabled Galaxy Tablet wasn’t your cup of tea, perhaps Samsung’s new seven-inch model will do the trick. The Galaxy Tab 3 has gone official and the third iteration of the company’s first Android tablet arrives with a 1.2GHz processor, 8GB or 16GB of storage (with expansion up to 64GB), a 3- and 1.3-megapixel camera array and a substantial 4,000mAh battery.That 7-inchWSVGA (1,024 x 600) TFT display suggests it’s likely to be a keenly-priced slate, although we’re still waiting to hear on specifics. Samsung’s loaded up the Galaxy Tab 3 with Android 4.1 and says that the WiFi version will launch “globally” in May, while an incoming 3G model (no LTE at this point, but it’ll be able to make calls) will follow in June.
