More Supposed Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Specifications

By - Source: Tablet News | B 5 comments

Leaked specs point to two size Galaxy Tab 3, huge battery and small overall improvements.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has had as many leaks as a ship made of Swiss cheese, with techblog.gr being the latest mouse on board. With a launch date scheduled around June/July, the site claims that the new tablet will come in a 8-inch and a 10.1-inch version.

Supposed specifications place the larger Galaxy Tab 3 version with a dual core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. With a screen size of 10.1-inches, it comes with a 1280 x 800 pixel display and up to 16 GB internal storage, expandable with a microSD card. The cameras are 1.3 and 3 megapixel for front and back respectively, and the device comes with a broad variety of connectivity, featuring 3G/HSPA+, 4G LTE, WiFi, and DLNA, with no whispers of Bluetooth yet. A 7000 (yes, seven thousand!) mAh battery will keep the tablet running strongly and allows for a final weight of only 533 grams, and 8.7 mm thickness.

The smaller 8 inch version runs on Android Jellybean 4.1.2 similar to its bigger brother, with the same CPU and an ungraded 2 GB of RAM. The connectivity and camera are also the same, but no word yet on internal storage capacities. Its battery is smaller at 4500 mAh and measures 6.95 mm thick with a weight of 330 grams.


While these details should be take with a grain of salt, some puzzling details are present, such as why the larger pad has only 1 GB of ram while the smaller one has double of that, especially as ram has become dirt cheap in recent months. The SoC manufacturer is also unknown, which would have been interesting seeing as previous galaxy tabs have featured system of chips from Nvidia (Tegra 2), Texas Instruments (OMAP4430) and of course Samsung (Exynos 4210). 

As for the prices, there is no news yet. Judging from the specifications available the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 does not do much to impress, and is merely a small improvement over the Galaxy Tab 2.

    Looks like the troll above has a bad taste of sour grapes.

    Well he is right. At those specs it is just a mediocre tablet. My Note 2 smokes them and is smaller. If you can fit that much power in a smaller form factor, why should I settle for less in a larger one? Especially for a device released a year later(when the S4 is about to take the specs to an even higher level)

    Sour grapes? Wtf are you talking about? Those specs are below average at best. Go away child.



    First off, those specs are based on a wonky leak; anyone with half a brain could tell the larger tablet's specs make no sense. If they were true, that tablet would have NO selling point.
    Second, the smaller (8") tablet is a redoubtable contender in that space, but even so, very little is known about it's actual specs.
    Third, it's always better to have choices and pick what's best than having ONE device shoved down your throat Apple-style; you, as an iFan should know that (but not understand it - hence the sour grapes remark).
    Last, but not least, much to your dismay, I plan to stick around for a while. ROFLMAO
