About a week ago we reported that rumors had suggested that Samsung will be unveiling a trio of new Galaxy Tabs at MWC 2013, and that they had been given the codenames Santos, Roma and Kona. Now one of the three tablets will apparently be called the Galaxy Tab 3, a bit odd considering that Samsung typically uses the numbers in their naming schemes to indicate its size, i.e. Galaxy Tab 7, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and so on. However considering that we have yet to hear from Samsung, we guess these names could be subject to change. Anyway back to the topic – according to a report by Digitimes, they are reporting that their sources have tipped them off to the fact that the Galaxy Tab 3 could cost a mere $149, with the higher-end model going for an extremely affordable $199.
If you remember our previous article did state that the Galaxy Tab 3 could come in two models – 7” and 10”, although last time it was rumored that Samsung was rethinking its 7” model. Specs of the alleged Galaxy Tab 3 remain unknown at this point in time, with rumors suggesting a 5MP rear-facing camera, WiFi/3G connectivity with 32GB/64GB options. No word on processor, display resolution, RAM and which version of Android it is expected to run, but assuming that the rumors are true, we guess we will have to wait until MWC 2013 to find out. Until then we suggest taking this with a grain of salt.
