Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 leaks online

An 8-inch edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has leaked online, including a host of specs and a new image.

The iPad mini rivalling 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 was announced last month, but Samsung may also be releasing an eight-inch version of the tablet in the near future.

SamMobile has managed to acquire a picture of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 which shows that the slate will have thinner bezels than its 7-inch counterpart, and a new speaker and camera arrangement at the top of the device.

It does claim to offer a spec increase on the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 formally unveiled by Samsung last month as well as an additional screen inch.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 could pack an 8-inch WXGA TFT display offering 1280 x 800p resolutions, running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean overlaid with Samsung’s own TouchWiz UI.

Potentially packing a 1.5GHz dual-core processor upgrade to the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3’s 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

For internal storage, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 offer 16GB but supports microSD cards up to 64GB. Like its 7-inch sibling, the 8-inch slate will come in Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi plus 3G varieties.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will boost the camera specs to 5-megapixels in the rear and 1.3-megapixels up front and pack a 4450mAh battery, while supposedly reducing the body size to just 6.95mm thick. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is currently 9.9mm with the 7-inch screen.

The 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 will hit retailers from early May, but as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, any details of a release date are still unknown.

Back in April before the official 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 launch, there were rumours of a 10- and 8-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, so we could see a trio of Tab 3 screen sizes come to market in the future.
