The past several months have been rife with rumors about new Galaxy Tab hardware from Samsung, but have seemed a little uncertain with regard to the details. We’ve heard names like the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus thrown around, and checked out a render of uncertain origin. We’re still trying to lock-down just what to expect from Samsung here, and now some new rumors arrive describing what we might see from both an 8-inch, as well as a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3.
With the growing popularity of the Note series in tablet sizes, we’ve wondered what that would spell for the no-stylus Tab models. If the latest specs are accurate, the Galaxy Tab could become a decidedly low-end branch of tablets for Samsung. Specifically, we’re talking about dual-core SoCs and three-megapixel cameras.
In fact, it’s enough to have us wondering if this info is accurate to begin with. Some details are decidedly odd, like a claim that the 8-inch Tab 3 would have 2GB of RAM, but the 10.1-inch model would only have 1GB. That may be a typo, but we could also be looking at lower-end Tab 3 models, and higher-end Tab 3 Plus versions with hardware more like the Galaxy Notes.
