Samsung’s 2013 tablet portfolio leaked – 1080p 8-incher and Octa-core Nexus 11 in the works

Samsung has already launched two new tablets this year – the Galaxy Note 8.0 and the only just announced Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, and now Samsung’s portfolio of upcoming tablets for 2013 has leaked, hinting at a pretty interesting lineup.

The most interesting device on the list is the Galaxy Tab 8.0, which should be the first tablet smaller than 10-inch with a full HD 1080p resolution. There is also a Nexus 11 listed – this successor to the Nexus 10 will be made in collaboration with Google and be the first tablet to be powered by an octa-core chipset, the same that’s found in the Galaxy S4. It is also expected to have a 11″ screen, which does sound a bit odd, and dare I say, unnecessary.

There is also a Galaxy Tab DUOS 7.0 on the portfolio, which is basically a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 but with dual SIM support, a rather odd feature for a tablet. Last but not the least, there is also a Galaxy Tab 11 on the horizon, with a 11-inch screen like the Nexus 11 and a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor like Samsung’s 2012 flagship devices. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 2 10.1 has apparently been cancelled owing to poor sales of the first version.

It’s an interesting portfolio indeed, and it seems Samsung is working on putting a tablet in every single category out there so that consumers are spoiled for choice. A common tactic for the Korean manufacturer, so expect each and every one of these rumored tablets to be real and launch this year.

Here’s the entire list, along with the specs.

    It always seems Samsung will release a device with really great features but at least 1 hardware shortcoming. For example the nexus 11 has some great specs yet no mention of SD card capability. I got suckered into buying the Galaxy Tab 7.7 which stills beats the iPad mini to this day but, Samsung dropped support for the device 6 months after releasing it. Now Samsung will not release its source code info to the public so the Hacker community can’t fix or improve Samsung’s mistakes. Wow so what to do now?
