Here’s everything you want to know about the new Galaxy Tab E.
Samsung Galaxy Tab E Android Tablet
The Galaxy Tab E popped up on the Samsung’s Taiwanese official website yesterday making its first official public appearance. As rumored earlier it houses a mediocre specs and an affordable price tag.
Starting from its biggest advantage, the new Samsung’s tablet comes with a large 9.6-inch TFT LCD screen panel featuring 1280x1080p of resolution on the board. Processing capabilities are delivered by a quad-core processor (most probably a Spreadtrum SC7730SE) clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with 1GB RAM. When it comes to storage space, it is represented by 8GB of built-in memory, hopefully with microSD expansion. However, it’s a bit disappoint that a freshly released device runs the older Android 4.4 Kitkat when the newest Lollipop version of the OS has been available on the market for months.
In the field of optics, the Galaxy Tab E offers its potential users camera setup combining a 5MP main shooter in the back with 2MP front-facing unit. Furthermore, measuring only 8.5 mm in profile the device still manages to pack a powerful non-removable 5,000 mAh battery that keeps the slate alive. Currently the tablet is available only in a Wi-Fi version, however, a model supporting 4G LTE connectivity is rumored to be released later this year.
Priced at $226 the Galaxy Tab E seems to be a perfect option for all those of you seeking for a big and affordable tablet launched under Samsung brand. The slate will hit the Taiwanese market by the end of this month. At this point we have no official statement confirming when the device will become available for purchase in other parts of the globe.
