While it is nearly impossible to make detailed presumptions about a device by looking at its model number, the tablets appears to be a successors to the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. It is quite possible that Samsung is aiming entry-level market with its new tablets.
If sources are to be believed, the upcoming tablets are going to have similar specification as the Galaxy Grand Max and the Galaxy J1. The tablet with model number SM-T113 first surfaced on the Indian import record keeping website Zauba, and initial reports suggest that the device might be intended for the European market. Reports say that the SM-T113 could be priced around $549, but nothing can be confirmed before its actual release.
As far as the latter model SM-T116 is concerned, it reportedly will feature a 7-inch display, Android 4.4 KitKat, a 1.2GHz quad-core Spreatrum SC8830 processor and 1GB RAM.
If you are planning to buy a budget tablet, you might want to wait till the third week of January, when these devices are likely to be launched.
