New Samsung Galaxy Android Tablets: GT-P3100, GT-P5100

January 31, 2012

Samsung is attacking the tablet market like no other and they don’t appear to be slowing down either. Blog of Mobile discovered two new tablets in the works from the Korea-based manufacturer in a pair of WiFi certification filings. The GT-P3100 and GT-P5100 are clearly Galaxy-branded tablets and are expected to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but little else is known about them. Some may argue that at least one of these has to be the successor to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (2GHz dual-core processor, 2560×1600 HD display), however, their model numbers suggest we’re looking at two smaller tablets.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1, 8.9, 7.7 and 7.0 Plus carry the model numbers GT-P7500, GT-P7310, GT-P6800 and GT-P6200, respectively. The original 7″ Galaxy Tab is listed as the GT-P1000. As you can see, the smaller the screen, the smaller the number. It’s only natural to assume the GT-P3100 and GT-P5100 are actually low to mid-range tablets with screens around 7 inches, at least that’s our preliminary prediction. In fact, the P3100 actually popped up in code on Samsung’s website, noting a WSVGA screen resolution (1024×600), which basically eliminates it from the high-end class of tablets. Unfortunately, the resolution of the P5100 hasn’t been made public yet, so we can only speculate that it’s also not a large-screened device. It could be another variant of the 7-inchers we’ve been seeing from Samsung lately. We’ll likely hear more about these, as well as other Samsung tablets, at the 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in late February.
