Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Might Have An Intel Processor

Things in the mobile world just might get interesting. A device by the name of GT-P5200 has shown up on a benchmarking site called GFXBench, and it looks to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. The Tab 2 10.1 had a model number of GT-P5100, so it would make sense. In shocking news, Samsung may be moving away from the ARM architecture with this one, instead opting for an Intel Clovertrail processor.

Intel has been struggling to gain traction in the mobile world. It has not been widely adopted, but they’re still pushing forward. With a huge partner like Samsung, Intel could finally become big in the mobile processor game. This would definitely change the landscape of mobile, as switching to an entirely new architecture is a huge move (though x86 is not new, it’s new to mobile!).

In other specs, the Tab 3 10.1 is as average and, dare I say, disappointing as its predecessors. The saddest part is the 10.1″ 1280×800 display, which is incredibly low pixel density. Fortunately, it will ship with a 1.6GHz Intel processor and Android 4.2.2. Keep in mind that these specs are by no means official, as they just come from a benchmarking site. Hopefully they’re real, because a mainstream device with an Intel processor sounds pretty awesome.
