Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 family to include a 2560x1600 display member, UAP profile reveals

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 family to include a 2560x1600 display member, UAP profile reveals
Earlier this week someone sent us photos of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 prototype, but the pics were too blurry to tell anything about the specs from the writings on the box. The preproduction version was also obviously in the very first states of testing, as it was running stock Android, but now we get UAP profiles, extracted directly from Samsung's corporate website that reveal a bit more about the expected resolutions.

There are three versions listed, GT-P3200, GT-P5200 and GT-P8200, which could very well be a 7-incher (rumored to be nixed so as not to clash with the 8" one), an 8-incher, which is likely the Galaxy Note 8.0, and a 10" flagship which might end up being the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.

The 10-incher carries the same resolution as the Nexus 10, 2560x1600 pixels, while the 7" sports 1024x600, and the alleged Note 8.0 is listed with 1280x800, which is not too shabby for the size, and given the S Pen capabilities. 

All in all, it seems that, besides the new 8" member of the Note family, there might be at least one high-end tablet announced at MWC next month, with WQXGA screen and, judging from leaked benchies, an Exynos 5 Dual processor, akin to the Nexus 10, as well as the latest Android 4.2.1, though it's anyone's guess whether it will feature an S Pen or not to differentiate itself from Google's tablet. Plenty of time for more leaks about it, though.

If sammy wants these tablets to sell well they better think of pricing first.

Are you saying Samsung doesn't know how to sell a product?

Have you seen the pricing of sammys 7in tab in comparison to other 7in tabs? I think thats what he was getting at

I am sure they have market analysis team on that. My guess is $499 for the flagship and that will sell like hot cakes at that price considering the Note 10.1 is the best selling 10 inch Android tablet. If the Note 10.1 can sell with poor build quality, poor screen, and poor reviews; imagine how well a mainstream version of the Nexus 10 would sell.

You would think that with a nexus 7 with a 1280x720 resolution that came out months ago would set the standard for 7" tablets but no... Sammy and apples 2 apples feel the need for a sub par slate. The note 10 does look like its gonna have specs worth drooling over though.

If the galaxy tab 3 really has this resolution I might sell my nexus 10 and get one.

I think Samsung, unlike Nexus 10, will have a micro sd card slot. I wouild buy the Samsung over Nexus if that is the case.

Yes I do. But I would prefer the user experience of touch wiz. I had the nexus 10 for about a month and half and to me the user experience is kinda boring. I also see it lag ever so often.

I was gonna get the note 10.1 but I got the nexus because of the resolution and jelly bean.
