Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Specs Rumored, Possible Render Leaks

Advertisement

Last month, Samsung announced the first Galaxy Tab 3 model, a seven-inch tablet. Obviously, more Tab 3 options would follow, and at the time we heard rumors about a few other hardware configurations. One of those included an eight-inch model with some nice specs like an AMOLED screen. As we wait for official word, some new specs have leaked for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, along with a possible render.

Bad news first: this falls way short of those rumored specs. That means a regular old LCD screen (1280 x 800) and instead of a quad-core SoC, only a dual-core 1.5GHz component – no word on if that could be an Exynos 5 Dual, however, which would make us quite a bit more excited.

Some of the other specs are just weird, like 1.5GB of RAM, leaving us unsure how much faith to put in them. Then there’s the render above, which just looks “off.” That’s some mighty bizarre camera placement up top, and why does the front-facer look identical to the ambient light sensor? You’ll also notice a thin line (just to the left of the leftmost “camera”) that extends all the way down to the bottom of the tablet – a sign of poorly-done fake, or just sloppiness on Samsung’s part, we can’t say.
