After the release of Samsung’s 7-inch tablet under its Galaxy Tab 3 series, specifications and purported picture of an 8-inch tablet in the same series have surfaced online.
According to a new report by Samsung focused website, SamMobile, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is expected to release by the end of next month. It will come in Wi-Fi-only and 3G variants, and will be powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. It will feature an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels.
The tablet will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It will come with an internal storage capacity of 16GB expandable up to 64GB via microSD card. The rumoured specifications also suggest a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing camera. It’s also expected to have a 4450mAh battery.
We’re not sure if the image that accompanies the specifications is real or just a mock-up but it reveals that the tablet will have a much thinner bezel compared to its 7-inch sibling. The tablet is expected to be just 6.95mm thick compared to the 9.9mm thickness of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. It looks similar to Galaxy Note 8.0/ Galaxy Note 510, Samsung’s recently launched 8-inch tablet but with thinner bezel.
Samsung had launched the Galaxy Note 3 7.0 at the end of April. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor alongside 1GB of RAM. The 7-inch screen has a rather disappointing 1024×600 resolution at a paltry 169ppi. The tablet is available in 8GB/ 16GB storage options, expandable by another 64GB via microSD card. Connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and A-GPS/ GLONASS.
