The authorities that are granting the official certifications for the connectivity features of the mobile terminals are a great source of leaks regarding unannounced smartphones and tablets. Today, we get to know more about Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, a tablet that was expected to debut at Mobile World Congress 2013 event in February, but the South Korea-based company decided that the Galaxy Note 8 should be enough for now.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 received the certification for DLNA technology and it seems that there will be 9 variants of the tablet available on the market after Samsung officially introduces it to the public.
According to the screenshot above that comes from an Italian website later this year we will get to meet three new members of the Galaxy Tab family: a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3, codenamed GT P52xx, then the 7-inch variant of the new tablet, codenamed GT P32xx, and Galaxy Tab 3 Plus, codenamed GT P82xx.
Reports say that the latter one will sport a display with an amazing resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels, thus it might become Samsung’s new flagship tablet and a worthy rival for Apple’s iPad 4.
Each of the three aforementioned variants will have three connectivity options: WiFi, WiFi+3G, and WiFi+3G/LTE.
Given the impressive screen resolution of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, I wouldn’t be surprised to see that the South Korean tablet maker will fit an octo-core Exynos 5 Octa chipset under the hood of its new tablet.
As usual, we are recommending you to take the rumors with a pinch of salt for now. All we can do now is wait and see whether Samsung will wait in shadow and launch it’s new “super-tablet” in the same time with Apple’s iPad 5, or if the South Koreans will launch it sometime sooner.
