Recent rumours have hinted that Samsung is readying a refresh of its tablet lineup with new models ranging in size from 7-inches to 10.1-inches. According to information obtained by SamMobile, it is working on three models in a new Galaxy Tab 3 family of tablets but not all may see the light of day.

Most likely to launch is the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. It will be available in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE options. Samsung could also launch a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 model but only if sales of the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 meet its goals. Like its larger cousin, it would come in both both Wi-Fi-only and LTE options. A Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 model has apparently been dropped.

Samsung also has a Galaxy Tab 3 Plus and a tablet known only by its Vienna codename in development. The latter could be a followup to the original Galaxy Note 10.1.

The report also provides codenames and model numbers for these tablets:

  • Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Codename: Kona
  • Model numbers: GT-N5100 / GT-N5110 (Wi-Fi) / GT-N5120 (LTE)
  • Galaxy Tab 3 7.0
  • Codename: Santos
  • Model numbers: GT-P3200 / GT-P3210 (Wi-Fi) / GT-P3220 (LTE)
  • Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
  • Codename: Santos
  • Model numbers: Unknown
  • Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
  • Codename: Santos
  • Model numbers: GT-P5200 / GT-P5210 (Wi-Fi) / GT-P5220 (LTE)
  • Galaxy Tab 3 Plus
  • Codename: Roma
  • Model numbers: GT-P8200 / GT-P8210 (Wi-Fi) / GT-P8220 (LTE)

Samsung has already confirmed that it will unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 at MWC 2013. It remains to be seen if the manufacturer will also announce the Galaxy Tab 3 tablets.
