Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Tab 3 8.0 and Tab 3 10.1. Those are the names of the Samsung tablets released so far this year. And that’s not counting the Windows-powered ATIV Q and ATIV Tab 3, which have been announced recently but are yet to go on sale.
You’d think that would be enough to quench Sammy’s thirst for novelty in the tablet market, especially since, let’s face it, the sales numbers are pretty weak. But that doesn’t appear to be the case. Not even close.
Instead, there are at least two new Sammy slates in the pipeline. User Agent Profiles have been found for the tabs, so their existence is all but confirmed. Then again, your guess is as good as ours in relation to their exact identities.
Numbered SM-P600 and SM-P900 (with SM-P601, SM-P605, SM-P901 and SM-P905 derivatives), these will come with Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE connectivity, plus high-res 2,560 x 1,600 (aka WQXGA) displays and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
A very promising start for the duo’s spec sheets, but that’s also where we’re forced to abruptly wrap things up for today. There’s literally no word on anything else about the Samsung tabs, so we’re left playing the guessing game.
The safest assumption to make is the SM-P900 is the high-end version of the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, likely called GTab 3 Plus and rumored before. A Nexus 10 follow-up could be in the cards as well, though it seems like a long shot, while the SM-P600 is really an unbreakable vault. Could it be some sort of a top-notch 8-incher? One can dream, but it’s virtually impossible to cram that many pixels into such a tiny panel. Any better guesses anyone?
