samsung-galaxy-tab3-leak-top.jpgIf the latest Samsung-related tablet leak is to be believed, the South Korean tech giants may be on the verge of releasing a new 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 model, with alleged press shots and an accompanying spec sheet hitting the web.

Spotted first by SamMobile, the tablet is said to have a codename model number of SM-T310 for the 3G version, with a Wi-Fi only edition picking up the SM-T311 identifier.

Running Android 4.2.2, the tablet is said to have an 8-inch TFT display running at a 1280 x 800 resolution, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor backed by 1.5GB of RAM (unusual since RAM usually comes in whole numbers). Built in storage is rumoured to be 16GB, with a further 64GB available through microSD expansion if you’ve got one of the memory cards lying around.

In terms of imaging, the tablet is said to have a 5MP rear-facing camera and 1.3MP front facing snapper, while all the standard Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS connectivity options should be present. Charging over a USB 2.0 connection, the tablet’s battery capacity is said to be a healthy 4450mAh.

SamMobile’s sources have this Galaxy Tab 3 variant pinned down for a June launch, but between the odd sizing (so small a difference between it and the 7-inch Tab 3) and the weird RAM count, we’re a bit skeptical. We’ll file this one away under “rumours” and let you know if Samsung lift the covers on this unlikely tablet.
