Galaxy Watch, high-res tablets on the way from Samsung


Samsung may have heard some of the rumblings about the Samsung Galaxy S 4 being just an incremental step from the Galaxy S III based on news leaking out about some new devices in the pipeline. The one item that seems to be closest to reality is a new Samsung item with model number SM-V700, otherwise known as the Galaxy Watch, which is scheduled to be revealed at IFA 2013. Unfortunately, few details are available about the device, including whether it will be a standalone Android device or whether it has to be mated to another Android device.

Meanwhile, industry watcher and leaker @evleaks is reporting a couple high-end tablets are on the way from Samsung. Headlining the specs are displays running at 2560×1600 in both a 12.2-inch and 10-inch form factor. The 12.2-inch version, model number SM-P900, will supposedly be powered by a new Exynos 5 Octa processor, possibly the recently announced Exynos 5420. @evleaks indicates this device will come with an S Pen, which could make it part of the Galaxy Note series of devices. Meanwhile, the SM-P600 will be the 10-inch version powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor.

More official news should be coming out soon at IFA 2013.

    hope they are better than those shitty ass tab 3’s you just released

    ok – like Samsung gets anything right, people just by them in protest against Apple, because many don’t like the way Apple controls their products…

      Wow, how wrong you are. I don’t like the way Apple controls product (one obsolete device release after another), or its litigious ways. But I also don’t like Samsung’s litigious ways either.

      But if you want a phone with 2GB of ram, a removal battery, MicroSD, IR and NFC, I think there’s only one choice. Those were must have items on my shopping list, and the reason I went with the S4.
