A couple of days ago, we all turned our noses up at the latest round of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 specs courtesy of Greek site Techblog, as they were – to be frank – utterly unimpressive.
Well, the same site is back, this time with news of a high-end tablet codenamed Samsung Roma. It sounds very much like the Google Nexus 10 with a few extras here and there. That's more like it.
Looking at the Google Nexus 10 and Samsung Roma spec sheets, the two devices are remarkably similar.
Shared specs include Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), a dual-core Exynos 5 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 10in display (2560 x 1600), 5MP rear camera, 1.9MP front shooter, and 9,000mAh battery. That much is identical.
The Samsung Roma differs firstly with 3G/4G connectivity, and with its microSD slot – which supposedly welcomes a further 128GB on top of the 16GB internal.
The dimensions are also slightly different, with the 8.4mm Samsung Roma being a tad thinner than the 8.9mm Google Nexus 10.
According to the Techblog article, the Samsung Roma will launch “over the next week”, bringing the total number of Galaxy devices announced this year to 189,815,416. But hey, at least it’s a tablet and not another bloomin’ smartphone.
