The first photo of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, at least according to Sam Mobile, has made its way online.
The publication doesn’t mention the actual source of the image, which you can see below and which shows a device very similar to the officially announced Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (above). The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 has a thinner bezel, destined to fit the larger screen while remaining comfortable to use.
The sensors at the top of the screen are also positioned differently, but the rest of the design is very similar to the one of the smaller model (if this is the actual Tab 3 8.0, that is).
Sam Mobile also offers a list of specifications for the tablet, mentioning two variants, the 3G SM-T310 (already spotted at the FCC), as well as the WiFi SM-T311 (a model with the same name has been seen at Bluetooth SIG recently).
The specs, which you should certainly take with a bit of salt (Sam Mobile also says they could change), are a bit different from what has already been rumored – an 8-inch display (1280 x 800 resolution), dual-core CPU at 1.5GHz (a previous rumor said quad-core), coupled with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD).
The back camera is said to be a 5-megapixel one, with the front one at 1.3-megapixels. Bluetooth 4.0 is included, but we knew that from the Bluetooth SIG filing.
The 3G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is set to offer HSPA+ at 42 Mbps, while the battery of the tablet is said to be a 4450mAh one. The tablet will run Android 4.2.2 and the same source says that it will be released at the end of next month.
Would you be interested to buy the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0,if these specifications actually do get confirmed?
