The Russian website Hi-Tech has proven to be accurate in the past by leaking the Galaxy Core, so with that in mind I’d like to share their latest “exclusive”. They say Samsung is going to launch two new products in Russia in June. One is the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. As the name suggests, it’ll have a 10.1 inch display, though sadly it’ll only put out a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Under the hood there will be a dual core 1.6 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. The camera will capture 3 megapixel photos, and the battery is rated at 6,800 mAh. Hard to judge this thing without a price or a picture, but you can bet that it’ll be cheap. Really cheap.
As for the size, weight, and OS: 243.1 x 176.1 x 7.95 mm, 510 grams, Android 4.2
Next up is a device I’m really looking forward to, the Galaxy Ace III. Now I know what you’re thinking, why the hell would anyone be interested in the Ace? Turns out it’s one of Samsung’s most popular product families. The Ace forumla is to take a two year old flagship, rework it a bit, and sell it for next to nothing. According to Hi-Tech, it’ll have a 4 inch display that puts out 800 x 480 pixels, a dual core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera. It should cost 9,990 rubles, which comes out to 250 EUR.
Size and OS: 121.2 x 62.7 x 9.8 mm, “Jelly Bean” (could be 4.1 or 4.2)
Will we see these two devices announced at Samsung’s event on June 20th? Maybe, I’m thinking they’re not important enough to be presented at a dedicated event. One day we’ll all wake up with a press release in our inbox and that’ll be that. I think Samsung is saving the GS4 Mini, GS4 Zoom, and GS4 Active for their grand ball.
