If you’re looking for some juicy information to tide you over until next month’s Samsung Premiere 2013 event, then look no further, as some rumored specifications have appeared for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet and Galaxy Ace 3 smartphone.
The information has appeared on the same site which leaked information about the Galaxy Zoom camera phone, so there’s a good chance that the information could be accurate.
We’ve already had a few leaks about the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 variant, but now we have a better idea about what its larger brother could have hiding under the hood. According to the leak, the tablet’s 10-inch display will pack in 1280×700 pixels, so sadly no 1080p display this time. It will come in a few variations depending on whether you require 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, and there will be different models for 3G support or WiFi-only as well. The tablet also includes a microSD card slot if you need to the extra storage capacity.
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will supposedly also feature a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, which matches the clock speed of the Intel Z2560 processor rumored yesterday. On top of that there’s 1GB worth of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera, a 3 megapixel one on the front, and it will ship with a 6800mAh battery. Finally, the tablet will be 243.1 x 176.1 x 7.95 mm in size, weighs in at 510 grams, and will come with the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean as well.
Moving on to the Galaxy Ace 3, as you’d expect the handset comes with decent mid-range specs which shouldn’t break the bank. The Ace 3 is looking at a modest 1Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a rather slender 4GB of memory. But there will be a microSD card slot, so that’s not really a problem.
Money also appears to have been saved on the display, which will come in at 4-inches, making it ever so slightly larger than the Galaxy Ace 2, but it will only have the same 480×800 pixel resolution as the Ace 2. Again, the handset will come with the standard front and rear facing cameras, sporting 5 and 0.3 megapixels respectively. The battery is also supposed to be exactly the same size as its predecessor, 1500mAh, but the Ace 3 will ship with the upgraded Jelly Bean operating system. Size wise, the handset is 121.2 x 62.7 x 9.8 mm, which will easily fit into your pocket.
If these specs turn out to be true, we are looking at a couple of devices which are just really incremental upgrades in their respective ranges. There certainly doesn’t appear to be anything earth shattering here. That’s not to say that either of the two is set up to be a bad product. Both of them should offer some decent bank for your buck.

Sounds like garbage, were is the samsung made tablet featuring the display that was in the nexus 10?
One very good question. Samsung obviously has the tech to do so, and the the brand power to price it higher than the N10 (500-600$ ?) thus making the product profitable, even at low sales rate.
So why the hell don’t they do so immediately ?
This is truly a mystery to me.
Under 720p display ಠ_ಠ
no quad core or 2gb ram?? so it’s last years specs, pass, lets see a new Note 10.1 or nexus 10 plz.
You cant really compare ARM and x86 prossecors. Most ultrabooks dont have quad core, and they are much powerfull than tablets. but i agree with you.
Intel’s forthcoming architectures are VERY promising, surpassing ARM A15 cores.
Just read this :
Why is this tablet coming out with a less than 720p display?
I’m guessing the 1280×700 resolution must be a typo, that’s just a really odd aspect ratio no one has used before. It’s probably 1280×800. Which is still pretty lame for a 10 inch tablet in 2013, unless Samsung is pricing this at $300 or less (which I doubt).
Is this 2013?
because I suddenly felt like it was 2011 all over again
Yes. Such a device will only compete with … the iPad….. 2 !
