FCC receives the Samsung SM-T310, possibly the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
seen at the end of last month getting its Bluetooth SIG certification. The model number of the device seen getting certified was the SM-T311 which certainly could be a variant of the SM-T310. No matter how you slice it, it seems like both the SM-T310 and the SM-T311 are different versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 does not use an S Pen nor does it have any of the features associated with the Note series like multiwindows or Smart Stay. The device is expected to offer an 8 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800, and have a quad-core processor under the hood. The slate is said to be available only in white at first, and measure just 6.95mm thin.
While we have no clue as to when the tablet might be introduced and launched, visiting the FCC is one hurdle that can be crossed off the list of things to do before the slab is in buyers' hands.
