Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, 10-Inch Tablet Confirmed in AnTuTu Benchmark

The score and looks suggest similarities with the Google Nexus 10

While still fighting with Apple over whether or not it should be allowed to sell the initial Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, Samsung is not only shipping the Galaxy Tab 2, but is also preparing the Galaxy Tab 3.

The company hasn't really said much about the slate. There has definitely been no announcement about it recently at any rate.

Nevertheless, the web has once again proven that information on unannounced devices can come from almost anywhere.

This time, we have the AnTuTu benchmark to thank, and the folks at Techkiddy tech blog for relaying that information.

A score of 13,377 was achieved by the 10-inch device thanks to its 1.7 GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 4 processor (based on Cortex A15) and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

The resolution of the screen is not specified, but the other similarities with the Nexus 10 tablet are enough of a reason to expect the same sort of high-resolution panel (2,160 x 1,600 pixels).

As for everything else, the hardware should not be too different from that of every other self-respecting 10-inch Android slate on the market.

USB connectivity is guaranteed, as is Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, audio, maybe even 3G or LTE broadband (though likely optional).

A keyboard docking station may or may not sell along with the tablet as well. If not as a standard part of the package, there will be an optional accessory of the sort up for order independently at the very least.

As for storage and memory, 1-2 GB of RAM are probable, but the NAND Flash capacity can end up anywhere between 16 GB and 64 GB.

Sadly, no price or availability details have been provided, though MWC 2013, a trade show that will happen in February, may expose both. That means that the wait shouldn't extend much beyond the next few weeks.
