Samsung could debut two new Tab-branded slates at next month’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), it has been claimed, suggesting there could be life yet in the hitherto unsuccessful tablet range.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the tech expo will be marked by an eight-inch addition to Samsung’s line of huge selling Galaxy Note phablets. Imaginatively titled the Note 8.0, the device’s purported branding was interpreted as a sign that ‘Note’ may replace ‘Tab’ as the nomenclature for Galaxy tablets.
However, today that theory looks more than a little shaky. According to Sam Mobile, the event will see the launch two new kits with seven-inch and ten-inch screens, but both bearing the 'Tab' label.
Also incoming, we’re told, is a third tablet. This will be a top of the range model, the name of which, alas, the site’s source wasn’t able to provide us with.
Rumours from earlier this week suggest that the Note 8.0 will pack an eight-inch 1280 x 800 screen, alongside a five-megapixel rear-mounted and a 1.3 -megapixel front-facing camera.
Would-be buyers can also look forward to a 1.6GHz quad core processor, the newest Jelly Bean version of Android out of the box and, presumably, support for the same S-Pen stylus that comes with the Note and Note 2.
