There is a rumor that the South Korean smart phone giant, Samsung, will be unveiling three new Galaxy Tab branded tablets at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013. And these three tablets have been given the code names Santos, Roma, and Kona. And according to some new reports, one of the tablets, out of these three will be named the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. And this is being represented by many blogs on the internet as Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (8.0), meaning that this will be the next version of the 8 inch Samsung Galaxy tablet.
And this sounds a bit odd, the naming of the tablet I mean. This is because the company will have to change its naming convention to name the tablet as Galaxy Tab 3, as the company always puts the screen size of the tablet in its name, for example the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 10, and so on. And this 3 in the name just cannot mean that it comes with a 3 inch screen. So what could it be?
Also, there has also been another rumor which says that this Galaxy Tab 3 is going to come in two variants, one with only Wi Fi and the other with both Wi Fi and 3G (or 4G LTE). And there will be two versions according to the screen size as well, one with a 7 inch screen and one with a 10 inch screen. So essentially there will be four models of the tablet. And according to rumors, the low end model of this Galaxy Tab 3 will cost just $149, with the higher end going up to $199, which is still very affordable.
There is no much info about the specs of these tablets, however, we do have words that the tablets may come with a 5 mega pixel camera at the back and a choice of 32 GB and 64 GB on board storage. There is no clue about the amount of RAM or the processor being used.
