Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus with LTE gets outed by Bluetooth SIG

Nexus 10 giveaway

The Galaxy Note 8.0 will not be the only new Samsung tablet in Android town, as we already heard back in January about several Galaxy Tab 3 tabs that the Korean has lined up.

By far, one of the more interesting variants is the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus GT-P8200, which is expected to boast a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, just like the Google Nexus 10. We also learned through an early benchmark test result that the 10-inch slate will sport a 1.7GHz Exynos 5 Dual CPU.

Now, thanks to a Bluetooth SIG filing, the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus has been outed as well. According to the listing, the LTE-enabled tablet will bear the model number GT-P8220.


With the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus showing up at Bluetooth SIG’s website, we can expect to see the tablet hitting stores sooner rather than later. Whenever Samsung is planning to officially introduce and release the Tab 3 Plus, we hope that it’ll be priced similarly to the Nexus 10.

The 16GB Nexus 10 is currently going for $399 on Google Play. Assuming that Samsung will add some extra bells and whistles, such as a microSD slot, how much are you willing to pay for the tab?

    Dying for a good 7″ with some power, and at least 16gig storage, and a MicroSD card slot.

  • Samsung products are like pizza – when it’s good, it’s really good. but even when it is bad, it still pretty darn good!

    And no I am not a fanboi, just stating the obvious! What with all the Sonys and HTCs babbling about premium this premium that, everything fizzles out in the end. Samsung never promised a super refined experienced. True to their Nature theme, Samsung products are rough around the edges but in their core, they are simply awesome!

    What everyone must realize is, beauty and brawn are never gonna be a perfect match. The sooner we realize what we want to behold, the lesser our disappointments will be. Anyhoo, after all the ramblings of everyone including me in this site and in all others, what has come to light is that people prefer brawn over beauty!

    Just saying by sheer number of Samsung sales. We accept Samsung for what it is – a powerhouse not a beauty queen. I am no “power user”, but just like millions of others I sure as hell want to be called one to satisfy my ego! . And those not agreeing with me – well hats off to you all. You are clearly a cut above the rest! But know this – you are a vast minority and we, the bigots, will bully you and you simply don’t have the numbers to make it worth your cause!!! :D

      Samsung’s market share is mostly related to their aggressive marketing campaign. I know no one who bought a Samsung device for its specs. The only reason is because they saw a lot of Samsung Galaxy ads. Just look at the amount spent by Samsung. Its far greater than any company, even Apple.

      • Bo

        That’s because Samsung is a far greater company than Apple…

    Appart from the resolution, this is still last year’s best in tech, not a leap forward and certainly not a competitor to the iPad 4 let alone the 5 that will be out at the same time.
    And the price is certainly going to be higher than the N10 (just look at the price estimations for the Note 8.0).
    Where is the Exynos Octa powered slate ?

    • Bo

      Dude… Exynos octa was just announced a month ago.

      • kascollet

        That´s right. So why didn’t Samsung announce a really NEW product then ?

        • Bo

          They didn’t announce anything yet re: this tablet. It takes time from an announcement of a chip for that same chip to make it into the manufacturing process.

          • kascollet

            Right again…. for everyone not being Apple.
            Please don’t call me fanboy, this is bare truth (which I don’t understand).

  • Sony Xperia Tablet Z! Who said you can’t marry brawn and beauty???
    This tablet is sexy,light and water resistant! Build quality is amazing!
