Samsung has just announced the latest iteration of its budget tablet series, the Galaxy Tab series. Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will take over from the Galaxy Tab 2 and will come with a Galaxy S4-ish design. It looks like a tad smaller version of the Galaxy Note 8.0. It will come in both 3G and Wi-Fi guises and the 3G variant will feature the calling functionality and Samsung has even added up a proximity sensor to the device to take care of the display when you are calling.
The Galaxy Tab 3 gets lighter in weight and more compact in size as compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 2. The tablet comes with a 7 inch capacitive display unit which has a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. This is pretty much what was offered on the Tab 2 and there’s nothing new bout the display. Powering the tablet will be a 1.2 GHz dual core processor (most probably a Broadcomm unit ) which will be coupled with a 1GB RAM for multitasking.
It will come with two memory options of 8GB and 16GB. The storage of the device can be expanded via a microSD card slot by upto 64GB. It gets Bluetooth in addition to Wi-Fi and 3G for added connectivity. Giving the tablet juice will be a 4,000 mAH battery which shall last around 7-8 hours according to us. It launches with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which seems a bit underwhelming seeing the fact that Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update is already here.
It gets a 3.0 megapixel rear camera for occasional clicks as well and to supplement it will be a 1.3 megapixel front camera. The Wi-Fi only model will start its global roll out in May with the 3G and Wi-Fi variant joining the ranks in June. The Galaxy Tab 2 has just had its price dropped significantly and will get another revision for sure when the next generation comes in. Seeing the fact that it’s not much of an upgrade, the Tab 2 makes somewhat a lot more sense.
