Samsung is slated to unleash a slew of tablets and smartphones from its Galaxy family of devices in 2013 and the previously-rumored Galaxy Tab 3 "GT-P3200" or the 7-inch 'Santos' has popped up on the GLBenchmark database, fueling speculations that Samsung will release the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3.

The rumor mill has been buzzing with excitement and speculations are rife that Samsung will be launching a 10-inch, and perhaps a 7-inch version of its Galaxy Tab 3. Additionally, the Korean company has already confirmed that it will be releasing the 8-inch Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet at the MWC 2013.

Now, the "GT-P3200" or the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 has been spotted on the GLBenchmark database, giving us a glimpse into the impending tablet's hardware specifications.

According to the benchmark results, the Galaxy Tab 3 or Santos will sport a 7-inch display. Like the Google Nexus 7, the Samsung offering will have a pixel resolution of 1280 x 800 and not 1924 x 600 as previously suggested.

Currently, it is not known what type of processor the tablet will house; however, the results reveal that the tablet has a maximum clock speed of up to 1.5GHz. It is likely that the Galaxy Tab 3 will feature Samsung's Exynos processor. Additionally, the Santos will run on the Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean platform.

Previous reports have indicated that the Galaxy Tab 3 will be priced between $149 to $199, and will look to challenge the budget-friendly Google Nexus 7.

Additionally, reports suggested that Samsung was considering dropping the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 3 in favor of an 8-inch one.

Moreover, recently, a leaked image of the Galaxy Tab 3 surfaced on the Internet and showed the tablet in its original packaging. However, the leaked image did not reveal if this was the 7-inch or 10-inch version we were looking at.

With so many conflicting rumors and leaks, it remains to be seen if the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung eventually sees the light of day at the MWC 2013 or sometime this year.
