The new model will feature a Super AMOLED screen, come with a 1.4GHz processor and run Android 3.2 with Samsung's own Touch Wiz tablet interface on board.
Other specs include a 5100mAh, 10-hour-for-video-playback battery, 1080p video playback, and come in 8, 16, 32 or 64GB models with an SD card slot to boost storage even further.
Those wanting a forward facing camera will get one in the guise of a 2-megapixel offering with Samsung playing it lowbrow on the back with a 3MP rear camera.
The design has changed slightly over previous Tabs launched, however it is yet to be seen if Apple will be on Samsung's case with regards to other Galaxy Tab models.
Samsung has gone for a brushed metal effect rather than the muted, dulled metal of the 10.1.
