    Apart from that a tablet touting a similar model no was seen clearing GFXBench a few days. Incidentally, the benchmark listing provides vital details regarding the upcoming tablet. Here's all that is known so far.

    Old school 7-inch display

    Well, there are two reasons to refer to the display as old school. Ever since the inception of tablets anything with a display of 7 inch and above was placed in this category. In fact, most of the tablet launched two years back came with a similar display size. However, the manufacturer is now a days incorporating more display real estate onto their device, with the 7.9 inch being the most popular size.

    The all new Samsung Tab thus falls in those old school 7 inch categories with a resolution that is more so historic (well prehistoric!) According the GFXBench listing the enhanced Samsung Tab 3 Lite comes with a resolution of 1024x600p.

    An Improved Snapdragon chip

    The alleged Samsung Tab 3 Lite Enhanced version comes with an improved chip which is not only more powerful but also supports the latest 64-bit processing capabilities. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC which four cores clocked at 1.2GHz each. This is coupled with an Adreno 306 GPU.
