Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 series tipped to launch at Mobile World Congress

In addition to an 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet, Samsung will likely launch the next generation of its Galaxy Tab series at Mobile World Congress.

Rumours have been circulating that the Korean company is testing 8- and 10.1-inch variations of the new tablet, aimed at both entry- and high-level markets. GLBenchmark, a place where new devices hide in plain sight, has an entry for a Samsung product with a model number of GT-P3200, also known by the codename Santos.

SamMobile recently speculated that Santos was the name used internally by Samsung to refer to the entire Galaxy Tab 3 family, which breaks down into 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions, the latter coming in at two price points. In addition to a modestly-priced version of the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, Samsung is expected to reveal a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Plus with the same display resolution as the Nexus 10, 2560×1600 pixels.

Going back to the leaked benchmark, the GT-P3200 looks to align with the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 (no more 7-inch model, apparently — even tablets are going up in size), with a 1280×800 pixel display, a 1.5Ghz CPU of unknown cores, running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. No other specs are available, but we’ll sure to learn more in the coming weeks.
