The Samsung Santos, Roma, and Kona Tablets Are Rumored To Debut At MWC


SamMobile received a tip from their insider that Samsung is getting ready to announce 3 sets of tablets at the Mobile World Congress in February.

The first set is the next generation of Galaxy Tabs, dubbed the Galaxy Tab 3 series. There will be both a 7-inch and 10.1-inch variant again this time around. So far all we know is that they will feature full-HD displays, quad-core processors, and a 5MP camera. The Galaxy Tab 3 series goes under the codename “SANTOS”.

Next up is the KONA, which we know is going to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. JK Shin has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will in fact be announced at MWC, but he didn’t release any official specs for the device.

Here are the rumored specs released for the device:

  • Code name: KONA
  • 8-inch 1280 x 800 TFT (Super Clear LCD) display
  • 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core processor (unknown if this is the Exynos 5 Octa)
  • 16/32GB internal storage with a microSD card slot for expandable storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • 5MP rear-facing camera
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 4600 mAh battery
  • Bluetooth 4.0

It’s still unconfirmed whether or not the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be LTE capable, and if it will have NFC capabilities.

Last we have the ROMA, which will be a high-end tablet. The only confirmation we have on the ROMA is that it has the model number Samsung GT-P8200, and that it will have a 5MP rear-facing camera. There still isn’t any word whether or not it will run Android or TIZEN.

All of these tablets are expected to be released in the first half of 2013 and are expected to be available in the color white first.
