Eight-core Nexus 11 and Galaxy Tab 8.0 with high-def AMOLED display detailed in leak

Published Apr 29th, 2013 1:05PM EDT

To compensate for the boring tablet Samsung unveiled on Monday morning, details surrounding a handful of more exciting Samsung slates have emerged in a new leak. SamMobile has a solid track record when reporting news of upcoming Samsung devices, and the blog reports on Monday that four new tablets are coming this year from the South Korea-based electronics giant. Among them are the Galaxy Tab 8.0, the Galaxy Tab 11 and the co-branded Nexus 11, which will seemingly be Google’s flagship tablet for 2013.

Starting with the least interesting of the pack, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 11 will reportedly feature an 11-inch Super PLS TFT display, an 8-megapixel camera, a dual-core Exynos processor and microSDXC support. It’s certainly nothing to write home about, but the Galaxy Tab 11 could be an interesting play at the right price point.

Moving on to bigger and better things — or smaller and better, as it happens — the Galaxy Tab 8.0 will reportedly be a new tablet sized similar to the Galaxy Note 8.0, but it will feature an AMOLED display with full HD 1080p resolution. Other rumored specs include a quad-core Exynos processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and microSDXC support.

Finally, Samsung is currently developing a follow-up to its last co-branded Nexus slate. According to the report, the Nexus 11 will feature an 11-inch Super PLS TFT display, an eight-core Exynos processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and microSDXC support.

No launch details or pricing were provided in the leak, though SamMobile notes that the Tab 11 may replace the Tab 10.1 line, which hasn’t been selling very well according to the report, so pricing may be in the same ballpark.
