Samsung’s third-generation Galaxy Tab line-up seems to have more in store for us as evident from An Tu Tu benchmark results. While Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Tab 3 7, sources that have tracked the An Tu Tu benchmarks point to an unannounced Samsung device, which could probably be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
Well, how did they make the conclusion? The benchmark results show the presence of a device codenamed GT-P5200. As the codename GT-P5100 corresponds to Tab 2 10.1, it is assumed that GT-P5200 corresponds to Tab 3 10.1. It is all speculation however, because Samsung is currently using SM-Txxx code instead of GT-Pxxx code. Perhaps, the benchmarks are based on an older prototype. Benchmark manipulations are also a concern.
The supposed Tab 3 10.1 scores in the benchmark results match with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 or Exynos octa-core, indicating the possible processor used in the Tab. The OS is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the processor speed is 1.6 GHz. The device will feature a 3 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front camera, 1 GB RAM, and a 7,000 mAh battery. The display will be a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800.
Weighing 533g and measuring 256.7 x 175.3 x 8.7mm, the Tab is expected to be thinner and lighter than Galaxy Note 10.1, which is Samsung’s flagship tablet right now. Techblog, a Greek site, expects the device to be amazingly smaller and lighter compared to the 9.7-inch iPad 4.
Coming to launch dates, the Wi-Fi version of Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is expected in the 23rd week and the 3G version is expected in the 26th week. Techblog says that the tablet will come in 3G and 4G versions, with the former launching in May and the LTE version arriving in June-July.
