Intel's inside the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3

06 Jun 13

Signalling the company’s continued momentum in the tablet market segment, Intel has revealed the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by the Intel Atom Z2560 processor.

The semiconductor chip maker says the new device will also come equipped with either Intel’s XMM 6262 3G modem solution or it's XMM 7160 4G LTE solution.

“Customers are selecting Intel technology because it offers the best balance of high performance, power efficiency and battery life,” says Hermann Eul, vice president and general manager of Mobile and Communications, Intel.

“It’s ultimately about the consumer experience, and we are confident people will be pleased with what Intel Inside has to offer.”

Reuters reports that the move marks “a major victory for the US chipmaker, which is struggling to find its footing in the mobile market."

"Designed to be held in one hand", Samsung confirmed it will use Intel processors to power the device, branding the product a "top-tier Android tablet" according to Reuters.

The move follows new Intel CEO Brian Krzanich's vow to lead the company into a new mobile era, driven by a focus on smartphones and tablets.

Speaking last month, the newly appointed chief executive promised to make Intel more responsive to customers, believing the company to be behind the pace compared to industry rivals.

“Yes, we missed it, we were slow to tablets and some of the mobile computing,” he told shareholders. “We do believe we have a good base."
