Details of an upcoming Android tablet from Samsung have leaked out. This will reportedly be the third model in the Galaxy Tab series, although the name is allegedly getting tweaked a bit.
Instead of the Galaxy Tab 3, this device is going to be called the Galaxy S Tab, apparently to make the name more similar to Samsung's very popular Galaxy S series of smartphones.
This tablet will have a 10-inch touchscreen, according to the details that were leaked to SamMobile. This display will reportedly have a 2560x1600 resolution, giving it a pixel density of 300 ppi.
It's possible a 7-inch version of this device will also be introduced. Samsung believes in offering a wide array of devices.
Leaked images show that the Galaxy S Tab will be in landscape mode by default, with its buttons located on one of its long sides. Windows-based tablets have this arrangement, but it's unusual for Android ones.
Unlike this company's Note series, it won't come with an S Pen stylus or the associated drawing apps.
On the inside of the Galaxy S Tab will allegedly be a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor, with four 1.6GHz processor cores as well as four 1.2GHz ones. There will be 2GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, as well as a microSD memory card slot.
Other features will include a 9000 mAh battery, an 8 MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP videoconferencing cam, and an IR Blaster, if this unconfirmed report turns out to be correct.
Some details are still unknown, such as which version of Google's operating system it will run, Android 4.2 or the next version that's expected later this spring.
When the Samsung Galaxy S Tab will be released, or what it will cost, is also unknown at this time.
