Assuming these leaked images and details prove to be accurate, it looks like Samsung is planning to roll-out an updated Galaxy Tab 2 in 2013. But before everyone gets super excited, we are talking about an updated color and not anything related to specs. But hey, maybe the color options (and the lack of red) was the reason that someone had held off on a Galaxy Tab 2 purchase.
That being the case, it looks like Samsung will be rolling-out a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7 in Garnet Red. There is a set of images, albeit blurry images showing both tablets in the new color. Otherwise, details from from SamMobile note that the new color is expected in early 2013. More to the point, sometime before Valentines Day, which for those who choose not to celebrate that — Valentines Day falls on February 14.
In addition, it was said that this will include the 3G and Wi-Fi models of the Galaxy Tab 2 7 and 10.1 tablets. So far nothing was mentioned in terms of where the new color would be available. In other words, which markets. Still, assuming the early January timeframe proves to be accurate, we suspect an official announcement should be coming sooner rather than later.
As to the color of red, Garnet Red is not something foreign to Samsung. We have previously seen the Galaxy S3 in that color and Samsung has also made some cases in red. In fact, Samsung has previously released a Garnet Red cover for both the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 tablets.
