Three budget-priced new Samsung Galaxy tablets are nearly identical except for their sizes: the Tab 4 series will include 10.1-, 8-, and 7-inch models.
Despite their various screen sizes, these tablets will sport the same screen resolution: 1280×800. All will run Google Android 4.4 (KitKat) on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. There’ll be 1.5GHz of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, plus a microSD memory card slot.
Samsung is including a 3.0MP camera in each, plus a 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chatting. All will support this company’s proprietry multi-window function.
Naturally, the 10.1-inch version will have the largest battery: 6800mAh, while the 8-inch iteration is going to have a 4450mAh one.
There will be a version of the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 with just 8GB of internal storage. This is likely to become Samsung’s most afforable tablet.
All the Galaxy Tab 4 models is going to be available in WiFi-only variants, plus there will be 3G, 4G, HSPA+ and 4G LTE versions.
Price & Availability
Samsung has not yet revealed what any of the new Samsung Galaxy tablets are going to sell for. There was little hoopla surrounding today’s announcement — no launch event for the press was held — typical for products that won’t be high-end or flagship devices.
The Tab 4 series is scheduled to start appearing before the end of June, in time to appeal to shoppers during the “Moms, Dads, and Grads” buying season.
There have been rumors that there will also be a 10.5-inch tablet in this series with an AMOLED display, but no mention of this was made by Samsung today.
