Samsung is rumored to be releasing the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus at this year's IFA.

The company will introduce this tablet to better compete with Apple's iPad and the Sony Xperia Z tablet, according to SamMobile.

Samsung used a similar strategy when the company launched the Galaxy Tab 7.7 Super AMOLED Plus two years ago. This device received praise from customers and was regarded as one of the best tablets in the market.

With the Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung wants to repeat the formula by providing its customers with a bigger tablet sporting a high-end AMOLED display. It could either be 10 or 11 inches. The company is reportedly testing out different sizes at this time.
