Samsung has now made it a habit of releasing numerous Android tablets in a calendar year, each with progressively improved hardware specifications.
The critically acclaimed Nexus 10 ‘Manta’ tablet got launched just a few months back, and the iPad Mini competitor Note 8.0 saw its release last week in the US.
Now, Samsung already seems to have the successor of the former 10 inch tablet lined up for a launch in the next few weeks, and this latest addition to their long line of Android tablets is code named ‘Roma’.
The Samsung Roma is a decidedly high end Android tablet, with specs that can match up to the very best in the market.
According to Android Authority (who themselves sourced the leak from a Greek site called Tech Blog), the rumored specs of the Samsung Roma are as follows:
• Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
• Samsung Exynos 5 Dual 1.7GHz dual core
• Mali-T604 GPU
• 2GB RAM
• 3G / HSPA or 4G / LTE, N Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro USB
• 10.1 inch, 2560 × 1600 pixels Display
• 5 Megapixel rear camera with Autofocus
• 1.9 Megapixel Front facing camera
• 16GB Storage and a micro SD which supports up to a whopping 128GB
• 9000 mAh Battery
Although there isn’t much that is different from the Nexus 10 Manta tablet from its own stables, Samsung has made the Roma tablet a bit thinner and lighter than the Nexus 10.
With numerous rumors indicating that Apple has thinner and lighter iPads and iPad Minis lined up for launch this year, the Roma tablet could just be a preemptive launch from the Korean electronics giant.
