SEOUL, June 3 (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co said on Monday it will use Intel Corp processors to power a new version of one of its top-tier Android tablets, a major victory for the U.S. chipmaker, which is struggling to find its footing in the mobile market.

Samsung has previously used chips designed with energy-efficient technology from the UK's ARM Holdings for its best-selling mobile devices.

The South Korean firm unveiled two new tablets on Monday including an 8-inch tablet, and the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch, which uses Intel chips. (Reporting by Miyoung Kim; Editing by Matt Driskill)
