The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will reportedly make its debut in the coming months, marking a new tablet size for the company's Galaxy Tab lineup.

The 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 will reportedly arrive in a Wi-Fi-only model in week 24 of 2013 June 10 - 16, followed by the 3G version sometime during week 27, July 1 - 7.

The news comes from a SamMobile tipster but it's still in the rumor state, so take things with a grain of salt. The publication has a good track record when it comes to future Samsung devices, but nothing's for sure until Samsung decides to make it official.

On the other hand, this is not the first time that reports detail an 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 device, and this Galaxy Tab size would not come as much of a surprise. Samsung already announced a similar 8-inch tablet that is already available in some markets: the Galaxy Note 8.0.

While the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is still short on details, the SamMobile report does reveal the model numbers for the two versions of the tablet. The 16GB 3G model will reportedly have the model number SM-T3100, while the 16GB Wi-Fi-only version of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will have the SM-3110 model number.

SamMobile further mentions some other model numbers that are allegedly part of a new family of Samsung mobile devices. Models starting with the SM-T letter code include the SM-T210, SMT201R, SM-T210X, SM-T211, SM-T215, SM-T310, SM-T310X, SM-T311, SM-T312 and SM-T315.

Samsung's Japan download support page reportedly listed these model numbers already in the tablet section, but it remains unclear at this time just what each model number stands for.

One thing certain in the midst of all this confusion is that Samsung is preparing to launch a variety of Android mobile devices in the coming months, invading the market with various products, from smartphones to tablets. Samsung is always surrounded by a lot of hype, so more rumors about such unconfirmed products will most likely surface soon. Samsung could also decide to make an official statement along the way, so stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
