Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 may be Intel-powered



Intel could be the chipmaker of choice for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, according to recently spied benchmarks.

As noted by SamMobile, the GLBenchmark site shows both the GT-P5200 and GT-P5210 as being powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core Atom Z2560 processor. The difference, as you likely guessed, is that one model is Wi-Fi while the other also offers 3G connectivity.



Additional details for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 are expected to include a 10.1-inch 1280×800 display and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

It will be interesting to see if the change in chipmaker has any effect on pricing or if it helps Samsung muscle even further into the tablet market.

Does it matter to you who makes the processor in your phone or tablet?
