The rumors related to one of the biggest tech events of the year, MWC 2013, are making the headlines these days and it looks like they are all talking about HTC, Samsung, or LG.
The public is now eager to see what Samsung will unveil in Barcelona, a company that had a shy activity at CES 2013 when it came to announcing new smartphones and tablets.
So far, we’ve heard that Samsung is working around the clock to unveil a new Galaxy Note 8 tablet at MWC 2013, but it seems that a new Galaxy Tab is also on the company’s work table, a tablet that was unofficially dubbed Galaxy Tab 3.
I remind you that besides a couple of low-end smartphones, some new TVs and new versions of the Series 7, Series 5, and Series 9 notebooks, Samsung didn’t unveil any new products at CES 2013. In early 2012, Samsung announced Galaxy Tab 2, in 7 and 10-inch versions, while the 7-inch model became a best buy towards the end of the last year, due to its very low price.
Now it seems that the South Koreans are readying a new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, boasting a 7-inch display and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. There aren’t any other details of its technical specifications yet, but if we look back at the other Galaxy Tab products, it looks like Samsung might launch a rival for Nexus 7, a Galaxy Tab 3 with high-end specifications, but with a reasonable price.
Besides the full HD display, I am expecting the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 to bring 2 GB of RAM. There will most likely be 16/32/64 GB of internal storage, expandable using microSD cards, and maybe a phone function as well.
If Samsung wants LTE connectivity and a low price for its new tablet, then it might use a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, but if the Galaxy Tab 3 is meant as a high-end product, it might pack a quad-core Exynos or Qualcomm processor.
We’ll probably find out all the technical specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet next month at Mobile World Congress 2013.
