This year’s Mobile World Congress is shaping up to be one of the most prominent Android device showcases to date, with grand unveils and release date announcements expected for a slew of high-end Smartphones and tablet PCs. However, in the run-up to the event itself, leaks are finding their way out of the industry thick and fast, generating enormous excitement as to a couple of devices that may or may not feature at MWC 2013 – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and the HTC M7.
By way of the Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung has reportedly been working on a new 7-inch slate for quite some time now, which may have been earmarked for an unveiling at the event later this month. The Samsung Galaxy S4 by contrast will in all likelihood be credited with its own dedicated release event later this year, rather than sharing the limelight at MWC.
With regard to specs and features, the Galaxy Tab 3 is expected to arrive with a comparatively modest dual-core processor and 1280 by 800, which have the potential to keep costs to a minimum and perhaps yield a sub-$200 price-tag – something that would put the Galaxy Tab 3 in direct competition with the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire.
Meanwhile, the HTC M7 is also well and truly on its way into the wild – again by way of a dedicated launch event scheduled for February 19th. As far as specs and features are concerned, the HTC M7 is expected to follow in the footsteps of the HTC One X and fly the flag for the brand as its new showstopper. Under the hood we’re told to expect a quad-core ship running at 1.7GHz, backed by 2GB of RAM and powering a stunning 5-inch full HD touchscreen.
