You can never accuse Samsung of resting on its laurels. After unleashing a torrent of new Galaxy smartphones this year, it’s turning its attention to tablets.
Having launched its Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 back in April, it’s now prepping a beefed up eight-inch model of the same device.
Following the same rather tricksy naming convention of its smaller sibling, the new slate has been dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. Along with that aforementioned eight-inch display, it’ll also pack a thinner bezel than the 7.0 version.
Specs-wise, it’ll tote 16GB storage, a dual-core processor, a five-megapixel snapper round the back and a 1.5-megapixel peeper up front for making video calls or taking those all-important selfies.
It’ll clock in at just 6.95mm thin, just a shave under the iPad Mini’s 7.2mm frame. Android Jelly Bean will come as standard.
The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is due to land on shelves next month. With Sammy yet to get official, prices are unclear right now. But expect this to be gunning for Apple’s smaller, best-selling iPad when it does eventually go on sale.
