Specs of yet another Samsung device, codenamed the Roma, have been leaked, and they indicate that a high-end tablet from the South Korean manufacturer might be on the way. The jury is still out on the Galaxy Ace 3 as we wait for official confirmation. And while another recent leak surrounding the variants of the Galaxy Tab 3 brought us news of some low-end features, this device should slot in at the opposite end of the spectrum.
So let’s dive right into the good parts. The slate should utilize Android Jelly Bean 4.2 for all its operations, while it is expected there will be a dual core Exynos 5 Dual processor made to tick at 1.7GHz. 2GB of RAM will signify that the device is quick and responsive and there should be a Mali-T604 graphics chip for added functionality.
Internal storage amounts to about 16GB and expansion is thought to go all the way up to 128GB if necessary, via a microSD card slot. The camera will also be at a higher pegging, according to the talk. A 5MP main snapper is supposed to adorn the rear panel and it should come with auto focus, while a 1.9MP webcam on the front is to be seen.
With all this processing power and hardware muscle, a 10.1-inch screen is expected to be present, capable of throwing out images and video at a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels. In addition to Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA and Wi-Fi, it is thought that connectivity should encompass 3G/HSPA or 4G LTE. Finally, a 9,000mAh battery is to power the slab.
Judging by the specs that the rumor brings, it must be said, the Samsung Roma is shaping up to be almost exactly like the Nexus 10, with a tiny bump up in a few aspects. SamMobile is reporting that this information comes from Greek website Techblog, and the device should be slightly thinner and lighter than the Google Nexus 10.
