Early Details Emerge For Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 Lineup

samsung logo

At this point, it is quite clear that 2013 is shaping up to be Samsung’s biggest year yet in the mobile industry. With very highly anticipated flagship devices yet to be announced and the blog-o-sphere lighting up over next month’s MWC device unveiling rumors, Samsung barely has to try at this point to make headlines. The newest info across the wire are rumors of their upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 tablet devices, said to be ready for launch by sometime mid-2013. 

Much like the Galaxy Tab 2, there will be two separate versions; one 7″ and one 10.1″. With both models will come two variations; one WiFi-only and the other would support 3G/4G connectivity. Both tablets are reported to sport 5MP cameras (surprised it’s not 8MP by this point), and will feature 32GB or 64GB storage options. For the sake of making sure we put all of the info out there, it is also said both tablets will launch in the color white to begin with.

Since it’s still January, feel free to shoot down below what you hope to see from the Galaxy Tab 3. If it was me designing the thing, I would need a much better display than what we have seen previously, 2GB of RAM, that new Exynos 5 or higher, and a hardware design that Apple couldn’t sue me over. Is that so much to ask?

  • I’m in the market for a good device to replace my GTab 8.9. I love the size and weight of it, but loathe the Tegra 2 and tiny internal storage. The Note 8 looks intriguing, but they should bump that display up to at least 1600×900. And don’t give us a mushy Note 10.1-esque design . . . on any of these models.

    The only 10″ tablets that I will ever buy are Transformer style with the keyboard dock (plus extra battery and ports), so unless they come out with something similar, I have no interest there. As far as 7″ goes, it would have to be significantly better than my Nexus 7 and at a very reasonable price to even consider replacing it yet.

  • I do not like to use samsung phone but since using samsung galaxy tab I see love, it is a smart phone.i love galaxy tab 3

    Just as long as they put a higher res screen this time and not kill it with that garbage low res poop that is on the Galaxy note 10.1.. after having the N10,my eyes bleed when looking at anything else at store displays lol. =/

    I don’t mind skins in top of phones but If the software on a tablet isn’t Vanilla or close to then it’s a no go

  • Who cares about skinned devices? Just sayin. Maybe if they’d focus on HW and use vanilla AOSP they’d actually get better

      aosp or gtfo

      Maybe people who want features included such as multi-window. Let’s see your stock android do that.

      • VoiceofSky

        hmm,i agree with everyone above actually .. maybe Google will put a multi feature in AOSP KLP?.. i still prefer stock Vanilla,yum 😀

        This is a good point, Samsung, LG and Sony are starting to toy around with meaningful additions to the OS. The additions themselves are compelling, but have to be weighed against losing upgrade speed and general responsiveness of the OS. Right now its not a hard decision for me, but if they keep adding really compelling stuff it become one.

      • I’d also really like to see pen input (with the wacom digitizer) more widespread, like on the Note series.

        FWIW, I could see multi-window making its way into stock Android at some point — it kind of seems like a no-brainer, at least on a larger device, if you are pushing multi-tasking as a big feature.

      I don’t understand how the android fans… like yourself, on the Android Blogs say things like this. Get better at what? Samsung is destroying all other OEMS with their “Skinned” devices. If you’re in this camp, you’re probably going to root your device anyway. Just focus on the hardware/internals because Samsung isn’t changing anything software wise to please stock enthusiasts

      • chris

        Well to be fair, pretty much nobody does stock. So it would be more accurate to say Samsung’s skinned devices are destroying all the other OEM’s skinned devices. Those that do stock (*cough* Google *cough*), don’t spend anywhere near the same amount marketing it.

      Android is options and skinned devices are options…
      I have a Galaxy Nexus and a Note 2 and I wouldnt change Touchwiz for Vanilla. You have the Nexus 10, 7 and 4, why every tablet or phone has to be a pure Android? That makes Android different to othes.
      Now, skinned Android has a bigger market than Vanilla, because not everyone likes or looking for a Nexus.

  • There’s no point because neither will be better than a refreshed Nexus 10. And if there’s an N7 refresh on the way as well, the Galaxy Tabs will be done before they can begin

  • ChristianJohnson

    First. trololololol.

    • If I never see the words “trololololol” again, it’ll be too soon

        He’s calling himself a troll for his f’ing stupid post.
