Intel to enter Android tablet scene aboard the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1?
New Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 leaks have pointed to Intel making its first appearance on the Android tablet scene, with the iPad rival tipped to feature an Atom processor.
While a number of Intel chipset hosting smartphones have already made their way to market, the renowned processor maker has still yet to join the Android tablet revolution, with leaked Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 benchmarks suggesting this could be about to change.

As well pointing towards the first move to Intel innards, the leaked benchmarks have claimed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 specs sheet will feature Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS alongside a 1280 x 800p HD display that, as the product’s name suggests, will be 10.1-inches in size.
A direct rival the full size 9.7-inch iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is seemingly set to follow the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 to launch although no concrete details on the tablet’s existence have yet to be confirmed by the South Korean manufacturer.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 leaked earlier in the week, the 10.1-inch model looks set to be the only Samsung tablet to make the move to an Intel CPU, a slightly puzzling decision from the Samsung Galaxy S4 manufacturer. As always, we suggest such rumours are taken with caution.
