Samsung seems to be in no mood to rest after the laurels earned by its major product categories: smartphones, tablets and smartwatches, as the company is said to launch a new tablet series and the Galaxy Gear successor at MWC 2014.
ZDNet Korea has learned from sources that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be joined by a new tablet series, believed to be dubbed Galaxy Tab 4 and the long-rumoured Galaxy Gear successor, named Galaxy Gear 2 at the February 24 event in Barcelona at the sidelines of the MWC 2014.
The site claims that the alleged Galaxy Tab 4 tablet series will be an upgrade from last year's Galaxy Tab 3 tablet series which was powered by a dual-core processors. The site also reveals that the rumoured Galaxy Tab 4 tablet series will come in three sizes with 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch displays. Previous rumours indicated each would sport three connectivity variants, namely, Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE.
The tablets in the alleged Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 series are said to pack a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, support up to 64GB expandable storage, 6800mAh battery and run Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.
In addition, ZDNet Korea notes that Samsung can also showcase the Galaxy Gear successor along with Galaxy S5 and the alleged Galaxy Tab 4 tablets at MWC, something we've heard previously, from a Samsung VP. Earlier reports had suggested that Samsung has been busy developing the successor to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, which is said to be 15 to 20 percent thinner than the current smartwatch. As of now, there is no word on specifications of the rumoured Galaxy Gear smartwatch. The site suggests that the Galaxy Gear successor will come with an affordable pricing.
Recent reports have indicated that Samsung's unPacked 5 event, which is expected to see the next Galaxy flagship smartphone launched, will be a low-key event.
