Samsung has plans to make a mark in the tablet segment this year and we have definitely begun to see them working in that direction. Let us remind you that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 is just around the corner (January 7th to 10th to be specific), as a result the number of ‘leaks’ have increased surreptitiously. In the latest spurt of leaks outed by AnTuTu (the well-known Android benchmarks), we get to see specs of an unannounced Samsung tablet device which could very well be the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (SM-T520).
The device scored an impressive 33838 points on AnTuTu which is consistent with an octa-core processor. The spec revealed in this testing indicates that the device will be fitted with Samsung’s own home-grown Exynos 5 Octa chip (Exynos 5420), which is not a true octa-core processor as all eight cores will not be used simultaneously. However if rumors are to be believed, a software update would enable true octa-core capability in the Exynos 5420 chip. According to the benchmark test results, the chip would be clocked at 1.9 GHz which would deliver impressive performance.
The device sports the same screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which is also available on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. The display might well be a super AMOLED instead of an LCD. The tablet device is equipped with an ample 2 GB of RAM, as well as 32 GB of internal storage. In terms of snappers, the device sports an 8 mega pixels (MP) primary camera as well as a 2 MP secondary camera for video calls. The latest Android iteration – Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat – will grace the device.
We had reported earlier that Samsung is apparently increasing its arsenal and wanting a larger share of the tablet market pie. As rumor would have it, Samsung is planning to launch 4 new tablets in the first quarter (January to March) of next year. It can safely be assumed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite (SM-T111) would be among these four new devices. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite aims to be the cheapest Samsung tablet and is expected to be priced at around 100 Euros (approximately 138 USD). Though there is no clarity on which the other three tablets would be, going on the basis of speculation we might finally get to see the much rumored 12.2 inch Samsung Galaxy Note (SM-P900).
Though these specs come from a reliable source, we would still caution our readers to take these with a pinch of salt. Do let us know your take on this new tablet in the comments below.
