New rumors indicate that Samsung will launch the next-generation 7-inch Galaxy Tab at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona next month.

It seems that the 7-inch Galaxy Tab will not be the only device that Samsung will showcase at the event, as recent murmurs indicate that the Korean company will also launch a Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet and a 5.8-inch Android smartphone as well.

Not much is known about the next-generation 7-inch Galaxy Tab but Korean publication ETNews reported that the tablet will have ultra-high-definition full 1080p display and a quad-core processor. The current Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) was revealed at the MWC 2012 so hopefully the successor will launch at this year's MWC.

Many eyes will be hoping to see the Galaxy S4 at the MWC, but last year the wait for Galaxy S3 was extended as Samsung did not reveal its highly-awaited Galaxy S3 at the event.

The current Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) was not launched as a competitor to the iPad, but was up against other smaller tablets like BlackBerry PlayBook, Kindle Fire, and Nook to name a few.

However, with the launch of iPad mini in October last year, Samsung may want to rival Apple's smaller tablet with not one, but two smaller tablets, the next-generation 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Note 8.0.

Samsung has not confirmed the launch of either Galaxy Note 8.0 or the next-generation 7-inch Galaxy Tab. We will have to wait and see if both the tablets are launched at the same time at the MWC, or if Samsung launches one tablet now and leaves the release of the other after the purported launch of iPad mini 2 in March.
