When you think Samsung, probably the latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, pops to mind. This is only natural after so many news regarding the handset. However, the phone is not the only project the company has been developing. This week Samsung lifted the veils off of the Galaxy Tab 3. The Wi-Fi-only model will be available for purchase in the first days of May, while the 3G version is scheduled for release some time in July. We are still waiting for exact launch dates and pricing.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Android Tablet
If you were hoping it would be the rumored Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0, then you might feel slightly disappointed, as clearly this is not the one. At first glance (and second too), the tablet is identical to its older brother, the Galaxy Tab 2. Samsung decided to keep some of the specs unchanged too. The Galaxy Tab 3 features the same 7-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels at 169 ppi than we have seen in the previous generation device. The tablet also offers a 3-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel one on the front.
The processor was tweaked a bit and now clocks at 1.2 GHz. The amount of RAM, however, is the same 1 GB. The tablet offers 16 GB of internal memory for your content. There is also a microSD card slot, so you can add up to 64 GB storage extra. The battery is a pretty hefty 4000 mAh unit, so the device should get you through the day on one charge with no problem. The Galaxy Tab 3 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will be available with cellular connectivity in the weeks to come. Unfortunately, it will not support 4G LTE.
