With the Galaxy Note line stealing the limelight from Samsung’s own tablet line, we were quite unsure of what happened with the Galaxy Tabs. Looks like Samsung still has plans for it as they have officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
The Galaxy Tab 3 will be launching in a 7-inch form factor just like the very first Galaxy Tab. Samsung only announced one iteration of the Galaxy Tab 3 (no 10.1, 7.7 or 8.9 versions), but since we have no assurances that they won’t launch more, we won’t close on the possibility that there might be various iterations of it in the future.
The Tab 3 will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 8/16GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD), a set of cameras and Android 4.1 Jellybean. The WiFi-only version will launch in May, while the 3G variant will come in June.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 specs:
7-inch WSVGA (1024×600, 169ppi) TFT display
1.2GHz dual-core CPU
micro SD up to 64GB
3MP rear camera
1.3MP front-facing camera
3G HSPA?21 / 5.76
WiFi a/b/g/n, WiFi Channel Bonding, WiFi Direct
A-GPS + GLONASS
Li-ion 4,000mAh battery
Android 4.1 Jellybean
188 x 111.1 x 9.9 mm
Seeing that it runs on a minimum of 8GB memory, a 600 x 1024 display and a 3MP camera that is lower than the 5MP ones on the Note-tablet line, we can probably expect it to be priced affordably like the previous generation of Galaxy Tabs. Will you bite if this comes near the Php15k mark? Share your thoughts below.
