Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 shows up on Bluetooth SIG
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 has yet to be announced by Samsung. However, it seems as through the device has been spotted on the Bluetooth SIG site getting certification for the wireless service. While the tablet wasn't mentioned by name, it was called the "Samsung Mobile Tablet" (SM-T311) and shows an April 26th certification date. The Bluetooth SIG suggests a European launch at first for the tablet, which should eventually see the light of day in major markets globally.

The rumored specs for the slate include an 8 inch screen, resolution of 1280 x 800, and a quad-core processor. The tablet will be offered in white, at least at first, and have a thin 6.95mm footprint. In addition to the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, the Korean manufacturer is said to be working on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus with a 10.1 inch screen and a resolution of 2560 x 1600. Unlike the expected Summer launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus should be released in September.

Couldn't they improve the resolution? 1280x800 is not really spectacular on an 8 inch screen. Even if they want to use a wxga resolution, why not make it super amoled.

Resolution kinda low for its screen size....that's why I'm skipping the Note8 and wait for whatever 1080p tablet they could come up with

Maybe it's just me, but the specs seem to remind me of the Note 8.0. If they price it lower then $400 then they will have a hit.
