The first details for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 have spilled online ahead of an expected first half 2013 announcement. According to SamMobile, Samsung will employ 3G and Wi-Fi variants of the familiar 7-inch and 10.1-inch experience. Model numbers are already known –GT-P3200, GT-P3210, GT-P5200, GT-P5210–however the remaining specs remain elusive for the moment. That said, the hardware and software picture for the so-called “Santos” tablets may soon land on our laps.
Switching gears for a moment, the processor for the Galaxy Note 8.0 has been found to be a 1.6GHz CPU, though its exact type is unclear. The “Kona” is shaping up to be a rather impressive mid-range hardware experience for the mid-size Galaxy Note. Additional specs are reported to include Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage options, microSD expansion, an 8-inch 1280×800 TFT (Super Clear LCD), and 4600mAh battery.
Finally, a small bit of information to keep in mind for a high-end Samsung tablet operating under a “Roma” code name. Keep your eyes and ears open for a GT-P8200 with 16GB or 32GB storage and a 5-megapixel camera. This one could be something that follows in the line of the Nexus 10 and should also debut in the first half of the year.
