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.
