Samsung is actively prepping their new Galaxy Tab 3 lineup, which is scheduled to consist of around 7 different 7.0-10.1″ models having WiFi/3G connectivity. We’ve already seen a few leaks but it appears that the very latest member of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 dubbed SM-T310 just gained FCC’s approval.
The certification doesn’t reveal much except for the fact that this tablet will pack 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi connectivity. The device is also rumored to include 3G as well as a 8.0″ display with a resolution of 1280×800 (WXGA), 5MP back shooter with a 1.3MP front facing camera, a dual core processor (probably a Marvell SoC) ticking at 1.5GHz, 1.5GB of RAM.
On the software side it’ll feature Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean slapped with Samsung’s Touchwiz UI on top. We’ll very likely see a couple of ‘S-Apps’ being bundled as well, that doesn’t rule out the possibility that those might consume quite a lot of internal storage as previously seen with the Galaxy S4.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed anything beyond incidental certifications and support pages for the SM-T310 but this approval suggests that the device is only weeks away from being announced.
