The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, a new 8-inch slate that’s set to join Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab lineup, has been leaked ahead of its official unveiling. SamMobile has obtained both a picture of the device, as well as a list of its specifications, which include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is expected to come in two variations, one of which will boast both Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity while the other will be Wi-Fi only. Aside from those differences, both devices will offers the following:
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
8-inch WXGA TFT display with a 1280×800 resolution
1.5GHz dual-core processor
1.5GB of RAM
16GB of internal storage
MicroSD card slot
1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
5-megapixel rear-facing camera
All of these specifications are to be packed into a shell — undoubtedly made of plastic — that measures 209.3 x 122.2 x 6.95 millimeters.
These aren’t the same specifications that we saw from that leaked Samsung roadmap back in April. We were looking forward to a 1080p AMOLED display and a quad-core processor, but clearly this device is set to be another midrange solution like its smaller brother.
We don’t yet know when the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will get its official unveiling, but we suspect it won’t be too far away if press shots have begun to leak.
