Samsung is not done trying to fulfill all gaps in the tablet market, because they know they will need to offer an alternative to those looking to get the iPad 5 and the iPad mini 2 later this year. It’s for this reason why Samsung looks set to release the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, which will put it right in the middle of both Apple tablets.

While Samsung has yet to make an official announcement in regards to the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, there has been some sort of confirmation on Samsung’s website, as they posted details of letter codes of what looks to be future devices from the South Korean consumer electronics maker.

If we are to believe this rumors from SamMobile, then the launch window for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will be June 10-16 for the WiFi only version, and July 1-7 for the WiFi/3G model. Again, this is currently just a rumor, but it’s the best we’ve had yet.

From what we can make out the color will be white, so do not comment on the image above, as it’s not from the new tablet.

We are still a little confused as to why Samsung needs to bring out an 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3, as they already have the Note 8.0? Let’s say the rumors above are true, then will Samsung give the Tab 3 8.0 better specs compared to the Note 8.0, considering they know Apple will be launching the iPad 5 and the iPad mini 2 later this year? Although it does look as though Samsung’s new tablets will be budget models, considering the storage capacity will only be 16GB.
