Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 and 10.1 have been hitting headlines quite often during the last few weeks though its specs remained a secret. Thankfully, that’s not the situation anymore as we do have an inkling of what the tablet will have under its hood, though it’s applicable to only the bigger 10.1 inch variant of the same. However, there is one rider, the information do lack the seal of authenticity from the manufacturer concerned, which means it’s to be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt.
To begin with, the Tab 3 10.1 will be powered by a 1.6 Ghz dual core chip duly aided by a 1 GB RAM. There have been rumors of the chip being the Intel Z2560 processor, which if true will be mighty interesting. On-board storage will be either 16 or 32 GB though there will also be a microSD card slot to let to pack some more. The display though is said to pack in 1280 × 700 pixels within the 10.1 inch frame, which again is quite unbelievable. This since that many pixels will make for a rather staid display quality and reminds of the pre 2012 era of tablets. Quite out of place in the era of retina displays.
These apart, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is supposed to pack in a 3 megapixel camera at the front along with an even better 13 megapixel unit at the back. The better than average photographic capabilities does come as a surprise for a tablet with a supposedly pale display. The tablet though will be quite handy at half a kilo of weight. As for its OS, it’s going to be Android Jelly Bean for sure.
