Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite outed by user manual, retailer
A manual posted on Samsung's Polish Web site points to a Wi-Fi only version of the much-rumored Tab 3 Lite tablet, while a retailer has already listed the device.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 Lite continues to get exposure ahead of any official announcement.
A user manual for the allegedly upcoming tablet now appears on Samsung's Polish Web site. The Web page displays a model number of SM-T110, which reportedly refers to a Wi-Fi-only variant of the Tab 3 Lite. Indeed, the manual itself explains how to set up Wi-Fi access but offers no information on how to establish a cellular connection.
An online Polish retailer has apparently gone a step further by listing the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, both the Wi-Fi and 3G editions, on its Web site. Assuming the details are accurate, the page reveals most of the tablet's major specs, including a 7-inch 1,024x600 touch screen, 1GB of memory, 8GB of storage, a memory card reader, a Micro-USB port, a dual-core 1.2GHz Marvell processor, a 2-megapixel rear camera, and a dose of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The retailer is selling the Wi-Fi-only SM-T110 version for $165 and the 3G SM-T111 for $262.
With all these leaks, Samsung needs to announce the Tab 3 Lite soon or there won't be many surprises left. That announcement could come the last week of February at Mobile World Congress.
