Alleged Samsung Galaxy S Tab (aka Tab 3 Plus) pics and specs pop up, look questionable
There have been numerous rumors floating around on Samsung’s alleged next line of Galaxy Tabs, but we’re still in a fog as to what exactly is Sammy planning for the series. Could a 10.1 and an 11.6-incher (both high-end) be in the works? A 7-incher and two 10-inchers? A 7, an 8 and a 10-incher?
Even if our life depended on it, we wouldn’t know which of these to call more credible. The latest Sam Mobile report should untangle things a little bit, but, in all honesty, their latest “leak” is not much of a leak.
That’s because we’re pretty sure the newly revealed info is all bogus. But let’s keep an open mind and see exactly what we’re dealing with.
First up, there are two pics received from a tipster. According to the mystery source, these are of the slate previously known as the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus and now dubbed Galaxy S Tab. The name is pretty odd, but the images are even weirder.
The thing looks exactly like the Galaxy Note 8.0, but it has a default landscape orientation. The Samsung logo, as well as the Menu, Home and Back Buttons are all placed in such a way that a user would be forced to hold the tab in landscape to get a natural feel of things. Interesting, but fishy, don’t you think?
The rumored specs are not very believable either, as they simply sound too good to be true. The Galaxy S Tab is said to be packing an 8-core Samsung Exynos 5410 CPU (or Exynos 5 Octa), a Power SGX 544MP3 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of on-board storage, microSD support and a massive 9,000 mAh battery.
The 10-inch display allegedly boasts a 2,560 x 1,600 pixels resolution, the dual cameras are equipped with 8 and 2 MP sensors and there’s also an IR blaster in there. If only, eh?
