A empresa sul-coreana quer fazer esquecer, rapidamente, o episódio Samsung Note. Hoje, durante o Mobile World Congress, a empresa deu a conhecer os novos tablets Galaxy Tab S3 e Galaxy Book, mesmo quando os números…
Samsung is expected to focus a lot more on the tablet market this year, and while it did give us a hint of its intentions back at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, its possible that we might get to see more later this month. Rumor has it that Samsung is going to unveil a trio of Galaxy Tab 4 tablets at the Mobile World Congress 2014, presumably these tablets may be unveiled at the Unpacked 5 event, where Samsung is also expected to finally take the wraps off the Galaxy S5.
The folks over at Samsung have more or less let the world know that the Samsung Galaxy Tab family is about to grow bigger with its latest addition – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. Apparently, the Polish support page points to a user manual for the SM-T110, which is touted to be the Wi-Fi only model of the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. Apart from that, the local stockist for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite also pointed out to this device carrying a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, a dual-core 1.2GHz Marvell processor, 1GB RAM, a 2-megapixel shooter, 8GB of internal memory with a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, and a 3,600 mAh battery.
We already knew that Samsung plans to release a Galaxy Tab 8.4 Pro around February 2014, but more details have emerged from the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing related to the device. For one, the Tab Pro 8.4 will feature WiFi AC (alongside A/B/G/N WiFi protocols) and Bluetooth LE. The latter can be very useful when paired with a growing number of Bluetooth LE devices that are designed to transmit data continuously such as fitness devices and other wearable technologies.
Interestingly, the image found in the FCC documents show an LED flash on the back side of the device, which is not common on tablet, and hopefully, it is there to support a high-quality camera similar to the ones found in smartphones.
Earlier rumors suggested that the model names for this device could be SM-T520 and SM-T525, and at this time, it is not clear if Samsung will officially announce the tablet at CES in the first week of January, or later at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We will be present at both events, so we’ll keep an eye out for it.
The “Pro” hints that the tablet may be optimized for enterprise usage (with Samsung SAFE and KNOX), but it could also mean “high-end” as well. What do you think, and what would YOU like to see in a “pro” 8.4 tablet?
It seems that there will be another tablet from South Korean manufacturer Samsung that is all set to roll out in the US – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, after we have gotten word that this puppy has already made its peace with the FCC (basically, it cleared the FCC). FCC documents do point to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite as a tablet that carries the model number SM-T110, although the version of the tablet that successfully navigated itself through the FCC’s tests did not seem to come with any kind of cellular connectivity.
Needless to say, we do not have to draw foregone conclusions as to whether the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite might not come with 3G or even LTE connectivity, as those models, if in existence, might not have made their way over to the FCC just yet. Rumored hardware specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite include a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and a camera at the back sans flash. Of course, it also goes without saying that pricing and availability details remain to be seen, and it would most probably be a whole lot more affordable than the existing Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 tablet. Hopefully, we will be able to catch a glimpse of this at CES next January.
