Samsung may not be packing its octo-core Exynos 5 processor into the U.S.-bound Galaxy S4, but reportedly has big plans for the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
Based on new rumors and speculation, the South Korean tech giant may be saving some of its eight-core processors for the next-generation, high-end Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Plus is still in the rumor state for now, and is reportedly just one of the many devices Samsung plans to unleash this year. According to SamMobile, Samsung is working on a high-end tablet with a Super AMOLED Full HD display. That premium slate would compete with the popular iPad and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z.
SamMobile's source could not confirm the exact screen size of the tablet, but expects it to be either 10.1-inch or 11.6-inch. For now, Samsung reportedly toys with prototypes for different screen sizes.
Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Tab 7.7 with a Super AMOLED Plus display two years ago, and many owners of that tablet still believe it is the best slate on the market particularly due to its display.
Samsung now reportedly plans to take the Galaxy Tab series to the next level and spite it against Apple and Sony to compete on the premium tablets level. Samsung's Nexus 10 sports a PLS TFT display with a resolution of 2592 x 1936 pixels, and can easily compete with every tablet currently available on the market. The Galaxy Tab 3 Plus, however, has even higher aspirations. Samsung introduced its first Full HD AMOLED panel with the new Galaxy S4 powerhouse, and it looks stunning. That panel on a larger device might just work wonders.
SamMobile's tipster further confirmed that Samsung will pack the Exynos 5 generation in its upcoming premium line of tablets. According to the same insider, the company is working hard to develop the new display and it may unveil the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus at the IFA 2013 show in Berlin, along with the Galaxy Note 3.
Should SamMobile's tipster prove to be right, a bigger, better version of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 might just pop up soon with the ultimate display to watch videos and a crazy-fast octa-core processor to handle any task at blazing speeds. In this case, it wouldn't be a surprise if many people got new tablets this summer.
