Samsung has just announced two additional models in the new Galaxy Tab 3 series. These tablets with 10-inch and 8-inch displays will soon join the 7-inch version that was unveiled earlier.
The Tab Series are tablets that cost less than the models in Samsung’s Note Series with the same size screens, as they don’t include the S-Pen stylus and Wacom technology. They are more aimed at content consumers than content creators.
All the models in this series include Google Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean).
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-Inch
The 10.1-inch version will have a 1280 x 800 (WXGA) display with a pixel density of 149ppi. This tablet has been designed to be in landscape mode by default, as the buttons are located on the long edge.
In a slightly unusual move for an Android device, it is going to use an Intel 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, with 1GB of RAM. There will be 16GB and 32GB versions, and both with come with a microSD memory card slot that can store up to 64GB.
The Tab 3 10.1 will have a 3MP main camera and a 1.3MP front-facing one. It will include a 6800mAh battery.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-Inch
In most ways, the 8-inch version of the Tab 3 will be identical to the 10-inch model, just with a smaller 189ppi screen.
It will have a slightly slower 1.5GHz dual-core processor, but a better rear-camera: 5MP.
Pricing and Availability
Samsung says the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch and 8-Inch will be released in early June, but they don’t appear to be out now, as they are not listed on the Samsung’s U.S. webstore.
The company hasn’t announced what either tablet will cost.
