The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 series has been rumored for a while now and we even know that the 7 inch model got canned in favour of an 8 inch one. There’s also a 10 inch model and a Galaxy Tab 3 Plus out there, all of them coming to MWC 2013 supposedly. Today we get more solid proof supporting the existence of the devices: benchmarks.
The GT-P3200 Galaxy Tab 3 7 or 8 inch model (not sure yet) will rely on Android 4.2.1 and it will support a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. The info comes from GLBenchmark, that also tells us that the CPU will have a frequency between 200 and 1500 MHz and involve a Mali 400 MP GPU. Previous leaks hinted at a 1024 x 600 pixel display, but we’re glad that’s changed and upgraded. The SoC is listed as the SMDK4x1, that doesn’t sound familiar. However, when you benchmark the Galaxy S III you’ll see that the Exynos CPU inside has the same identity.
So, we can suppose that the newcomer will have either a quad core or dual core Exynos chip, at 1.5 GHz. Keep in mind that we could be dealing with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 cancelled prototype here being tested, so let’s not get excited too fast, OK?
