Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 leaks in black with white trim

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 leaks in black with white trim
We've seen pictures of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 in gold-brown and again in white. On Friday, some pictures of the tablet leaked in a black color with a white band around the slab. The home button also stands out in white. There is a chance that we will see this slate unveiled at next week's Samsung Premiere event scheduled for June 20th in the U.K.

More of a traditional tablet than the S Pen enabled Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, this model is expected to go up against the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 offers an 8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800. A dual-core 1.5GHz  processor is under the hood and 1.5GB of RAM is on board. The camera on back offers a 5MP sensor while the front-facing shooter weighs in at 1.3MP, perfect for self-portraits and video chat. A 4450mAh cell powers the tablet which features both Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. TouchWiz runs on top of Android 4.2.2.

Earlier this year, speculation called for a June or July launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 in white. While that might still turn out to be true, it does appear that other color options for the tablet are also going to be available.

Just like how Apple, HTC, Sony, and Nokia devices do.

Yes and thats also because Samsung releases devices more than Apple, HTC, Sony and Nokia.

Why so mad? You don't have to buy all the devices Samsung "flood" into the market. It's called CHOICE that's Samsung is catering. That's how they do their business. And what's up with those enumerations? All of 'em BASICALLY share similar design language. Your eyes hate Samsung so much, eh?

8. yudi.nemesis unregistered

I just hate the stupid things you said in comment # 2 Other companies also give you the CHOICE, but they do not flood the market with a lot of crappy products maybe your eyes are troubled, so could not see if all samsung product look the same and boring or maybe you're just a samsung fanboy who can not accept the fact

How is that a stupid comment? What I said is the truth. I never implied Samsung devices have different designs. I'm saying every manufacturer has their distinct design language that's why their products are designed similarly so you would easily recognize your loved Sony smartphones and tablets. I won't argue if you find Samsung products crappy. I'll just let the sales talk. Why would you even be bothered with the flood Samsung is making when you are not supposed to be interested in them? What's your point aside from hating?

14. yudi.nemesis unregistered

its stupid because when GTR722 said "All the samsung devices just look the same..." you reply "Just like how Apple, HTC, Sony, and Nokia devices do." you want to why because from all the manufacturer you mention Sony doesn't have same design on their CHOICE. Sony smartphone and tablet doesn't look the same for example just compare Xperia S design and Xperia SP both of them have same transparent bar but they look different from all samsung products only smartphone with great specs is best selling like my S2, S3 etc.. before you talk to much about sales, Nokia 1100 is the best selling mobile phone ever about 250 million units have been sold so stop talking about sales. our problem is design not sales did you read my comment i hate what you said and what other samsung fanboy like to said. the only things i hate about samsung is my GS2 doesn't feel and look like premium device even my Nokia E6-00 is wayy... better when it comes to feel and look

If look and feel are all what matter to you, buy a refrigerator. All these Nokia and Sony stuff you're mentioning doesn't make sense, neither do you. Go home dude, you're drunk.

17. yudi.nemesis unregistered

haha.... still can't accept the truth that samsung devices is look the same and boring i've show you that your comment #2 is wrong and the only things you can do is keep talking about BS just like other samsung fanboy when I buy an expensive smartphone, look and feel also really matter, because even dead OS like Symbian still capable enough to give me what I need from a smartphone.

16. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Hey why are you stupid.?? Samsung has a lot of money and those devices that you think are really crap in the highend category.. what do you want in a lowend or a midrange phone?? FullHD?? Quadcore?? All features of their flagship?? Cmon! "your eyes are troubled, so could not see if all samsung product look the same" huhh?? Ddnt you understand his comment(#2)?? He actually admittd that Samsung devices share the same design language and i also admit that using d same design in all phones SUCKS!!

20. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Thats it!!! These 20+ devices you are thinking might be on the lowend or midrange! So they will have crappy specs, Stupid!! And for your comment #22.. So what??? We know that! We know that Samsung uses the same design language in every phone, wer not contradcting you..

Ever heard of low-end, mid-range, and high-end phone classification?

22. yudi.nemesis unregistered

I feel sorry for myself for replying to your retarded comments. But please take this as your aid if you can't understand. If you are going to read carefully our comments, there is never a context where we deny Samsung using an all-in-one design. Even comment no. 2 has no such implication! It is you who refuse to see Sony sharing similar design. That's a valid example of stupid fanboyism. Please stay sober.

only you would know about this word you used CHOICE because last time i checked all samsung devices looked the same. Samsung ISNT giving choices and thats what pissing people off. Look at HTC one X and then HTC One. HTC is giving people choice to change phone becuase the design has changed or stick with old desgin. Frankly i see people leaving samsung like myself because they have failed to change design of their phone, they are providing same poison as Apple.

Lol. Just because they "look" the same doesn't make them two similar products. It's not for you to choose from if you're not interested anyway. Samsung devices range from specs to specs, sizes to sizes, prices to prices. Samsung targets most if not all kinds of market. They don't exclude people with limited budget. Heck, you can't tell that to OEMs producing one or two devices at a time. You definitely have to think about that before you give such a conclusion.

All these sony phones shares the same design cues, flat rectangles with hard edges since 2010, with just a few minor differences. Same can be said for Samsung, HTC, nokia etc.. It's just that the sony fanboy in you doesn't want to admit it. But at least when Samsung update their lines, they do it properly. They don't put outdated hardware on their new flagships!

21. yudi.nemesis unregistered

all of them have flat rectangles with hard edges and only few minor differences are you blind??? go to gsmarena database and check all the Sony and SE android devices!!! i know you love samsung so much but please don't be stupid fanboy!!!

SE designs are my favorite esp Xperia Arc S which is more beautiful than Htc One.. sleeping Oz is wrong in saying Since 2010 but correct in some things but applicable only to Sony not SE.. Sony designs now are beautiful in paper but brick in hands and they are sharing d same design-rectangle with sharp edges the reason why Xperia Z feels bigger than my Note2..If ill be the CEO of Sony, i will put SE designs back in the game because until now im getting in love whenever i see some Sony stalls with Xperia Arc S in display. I always imagine that design with 4.7-5" full hd display with thinner bezel___hmmm most beautiful device ever____:)

My bad, it's 2011, when they were working on the Xperia S.

26. SleepingOz unregistered

How am I a stupid fanboy? I fully agree with you that Samsung phones share the same design cues but so do Sony's, since the Xperia S who was announced in 2011. You're the stupid sony fanboy for not admitting the obvious everyone can see! Also doesn't change the fact that sony use outdated hardware on their new flagships!

Nice design! Better.

All of this Hype is meaningless if it's going to fall short on its price-point. The Note 8 was a prime example. I do hope SAMSUNG doesn't make the same mistake twice
