A new tablet from Samsung with a HD AMOLED display almost stands confirmed now, with a formal launch likely to happen later in the year (maybe IFA in September). However, official images of the device or information on its specs have been elusive so far, though the efforts of SamMobile has helped illuminate the picture. SamMobile has built a good reputation with reporting future devices from Samsung and has presented an image likely to be that of the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
From the image, what immediately becomes evident is its lineage with the same style cues as seen on the Galaxy SIII, S IV, and the Galaxy Note 8.0 also present on the image purported to be that of the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus. This makes it quite a familiar design that we have seen quite a lot of and could lead to its undoing. Obviously Samsung will pack it with a lot of power, and it seems likely that the tablet will sport an Exynos 5410 Octa processor with eight cores, Power SGX 533MP3 graphics, 2 GB RAM, a microSD slot, an 8 megapixel shooter at the rear, and a 9,000 mAh battery. The display that is sparking the most interest, what with Samsung expected to offer a 10.1 inch of full High Definition AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. That has the iPad 4’s retina display fully covered for sure, though Samsung is also rumored to be into developing an 8 inch version of the same as well.
So that’s plenty of tablet activity coming our way from Samsung.
