Samsung's armory of upcoming Galaxy mobile devices are set to create quite a stir in the consumer market, and no, we are not talking about the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3.

A roadmap of the company's impending 2013 offerings has leaked online and points to several new smartphones and a tablet, which are slated to release in the first half of the year itself.

The leaked roadmap is courtesy Techno Buffalo, which stumbled across the product portfolio, and gives us a glimpse into as many as four new devices to look forward to in H1 2013. Some of the devices you may already be familiar with thanks to the recurrent leaks, whereas others will take you by surprise.

The Samsung devices that are scheduled for a H1 2013 release are Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Xcover 2, Galaxy Pocket Plus, and Galaxy Young.
