Samsung plans to reveal more than just its Galaxy S5 flagship later this month according to some industry insiders. The Korean giant could also unveil a new tablet and wearable device at its Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 booth in Barcelona.
Earlier this month, Samsung announced that its Unpacked 5 event is also taking place in Barcelona, which we expect to be the unveiling of the Galaxy S5 smartphone. As ZDNet reports, on Wednesday (Feb. 12) tipsters said that Samsung intends to also show off a new Galaxy Tab 4 tablet and Galaxy Gear 2 watch during that week.
Following suit of the Galaxy Tab 3 tablet, sources said that Samsung is serving up three models of the Galaxy Tab 4 tablet, all running on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS. If the rumors prove to be true, consumers will be able to choose from a 7-inch display version with 8GB of storage, or opt for an 8-inch or 10.1-inch display with 16GB of storage space.
The Galaxy Tab 4 tablets are said to all house a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, with the two larger display models running on 6,800 mAh of battery power. The 7-inch model is expected to feature a 4,450 mAh battery and all three tablets are equipped with a microSD slot on deck, supporting up to 64GB of data.
As Android Authority points out, leaks recently surfaced online at Mysamsungphones detailing the specs of the Galaxy Tab 4 tablets. Previous reports suggested that Samsung was working on another Galaxy Gear watch to be released this year.
The Galaxy Gear 2 watch is expected to feature a flexible OLED display compared to the Super AMOLED display of its predecessor. Samsung also allegedly chose to redesign the watch, as the Galaxy Gear wasn't too well received by consumers.
Samsung’s Unpacked 5 event will be streamed on YouTube, live from Barcelona on February 24. MWC 2014 takes place in Barcelona February 24-27 at Fira Gran Via.
