The Nexus series, specially the Nexus 7 has been a benchmark tablet to lead the industry in terms of best specs at rock bottom prices. There were rumours of an 8 inch version of the Nexus slate and here is some update on the same.
According to a report “sources from the upstream supply chain”, Google might turn its attention to the eight-inch tablet market, with plans for a Nexus 8 by mid-2014. The same report says that Asus would be the manufacturer and Intel’s Bay Trial-T would be the preferred power plant.
Would you like an 8 inch Nexus?
Samsung cannot let a device release without releasing a variant of it as we know and so is the case with Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. There are no surprises in the specs department as it aimed at the entry level market.
The device packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz of an unspecified brand and comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Like on most Samsung devices, you get a microSD card slot for storage extension with up to 32GB. The display is an LCD which has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, resulting in a density of just 169 ppi, which is supposedly an “optimal resolution designed to bring users a better viewing experience”.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will roll out globally soon in Black and White.
On the specs front, the Slate 6 features an IPS LCD display of 1,280 x 720 resolution, while the Slate 7 VoiceTab features a 1,280 x 800 display. The specs seem largely similar: a quad-core processor of an unspecified brand, 16GB of internal storage with an expansion slot, front-facing stereo speakers, five megapixels cameras on the rear, and two megapixels on the front. The devices will be running Android 4.2 with some modifications from HP.
We’ll wait for pricing and availability details.
Well rumours turned out to be true and Samsung did launch 4 new Galaxy Pro models with top of the line hardware. Not only that, these tablets come with Android Kitkat 4.4 with a new touchwiz UI with a card boasting interface and better multitasking than before.
Things here in the leak that came from @evleaks today look more like a phone UX, probably to be featured on the next flagship and yes the new font is a refreshing change but it undeniably looks more flat and iOS like ever. Is this how the Galaxy S5 could appear? Could be, we are just months far from knowing the reality. There is no way to confirm the authenticity of these shots as of now.
What we can conclude is that there are the following models lined up : Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 10.1 and Tab Pro 8.4. Launching price details aren’t available yet but we shall keep you posted on that. The Pro line comes with high-end specs all-throughout and all these tablets boast fast Exynos 5/Snapdragon 800 processors with WQXGA resolution (2560 x 1600).
Officially we do not know anything about this device, According to a new report from SamMobile, the Note Pro features a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Other specs include an 8MP main camera, 2.1MP front cam, an IR blaster, NFC, Wifi 802.11 ac, a 9500 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0+ LE and a 12.2-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600. Phew!
That is quite a premium feature filled tablet coming to us very soon, as Reports state.
The year is coming to an end and to flaunt the success of their products, manufacturers are bringing out numbers to flaunt the success of their devices.
Samsung has reportedly sold 12 million tablets over the past three months alone. This is hardly a surprise as the company launched the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) during this period. Samsung has been heavily been advertising with attractive discounts and various promotional offers.
Samsung has even bigger plans for 2014, with an already rumoured Galaxy Note 12.1 Pro.
We’ve been hearing about an extra large tablet coming from Samsung almost from July with a rumoured 12.2 inch form factor. Today we have a few hardware specifics, and hear some new rumors about launch plans.
The tablet is expected to have a Snapdragon 800 at the heart of it, 3GB of RAM and a large 9500mAh battery to power a huge 12.2 inch 2560*1600 display which is a 2K display. Expected launch dates are mid-Feb 2014, with some sources saying this tablet could be shown off at CES 2014.
According to a tipster and several reports from India, KitKat used Nexus 7 (2013) images when marketing the promotion, but then shipped the older tablet to winners.
When asked about this to Nestle, this is what they had to say : “We hear you’re unhappy. Winners got the Nexus7 tabs available in India in Sept (contest date). The new version launched only in Nov.”
Well, only if companies could make their marketing campaigns better!
