It looks like Samsung is readying not one, but two new 10 inch Android tablets for later this year.
We’ve already reported about one of them – model number GT-P5200, and called Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Now a GT-P8200 has also appeared, alongside the rumor that it’s going to be called Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
Unlike the regular Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, which has a 1280 x 800 pixels display, the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus sports a 2560 x 1600 pixels screen – similar to the Google Nexus 10 (which, of course, is manufactured by Samsung). The GT-P8200 model number is confirmed by Samsung’s website (.xml file), and so is its display resolution.
Naturally, Samsung should position the Tab 3 Plus as a flagship tablet, while the Tab 3 10.1 will be an affordable successor to the Tab 2 10.1 that was released last year. Most probably, the Tab 3 Plus will feature a quad-core Exynoss processor, and 2GB of RAM.
Although Samsung is not going to hold a press conference at MWC 2013 next month, it will showcase new products there, and the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus GT-P8200 might be among them. The Tab 3 10.1 GT-P5200 could be also presented, alongside the Galaxy Note 8.0 N5100. All of Samsung’s new tablets will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It remains to be seen which will be available for purchase first.
