Samsung Announces Tab4 Series 10.1-inch, 8.0-inch, and 7.0-inch Tablets

Like clockwork, Samsung revealed today that it’s refreshing its Galaxy Tab line of tablets. Dubbed the Tab4 series, the new devices will come in 10.1-inch, 8.0-inch, and 7.0-inch screen sizes and feature Samsung software.

The details of the announcement confirm most of last week’s leak. The Tab4 series devices evoke the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S5 design-wise, but pack low-end hardware. Each has a faux-leather finish evocative of the Note, but capacitive multitasking and back button placement like the S5. In terms of internals, all three models share an identical 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 1280×800 WVGX display, 1.5GB of RAM, 3MP rear-facing and 1.3MP front-facing cameras, at least 8GB of internal storage, and MicroSD card slots. A notable difference is power capacity between models; the 10.1-inch tablet packs a 6,800mAh battery, while the 8.0-inch maxes out at 4,450mAh.

In addition to WiFi-only versions, the Tab4 series will come in flavors compatible with LTE and HSPA+. All will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat and Samsung’s Group Play, Samsung Link, ChatON, and WatchON applications.

Samsung intends the ship the devices sometime during Q2 of this year. The company wasn’t ready to reveal pricing, but considering the low-end nature of the Tab series, you can expect them all to be relatively affordable.

    These tablets are an insult to the intelligence of any consumer.

  • mustbepbs

    Samsung officially has THREE flagship 10.1 inch tablets:

    Note 10.1 2014, TabPro 10.1 and Tab4 10.1

    What the ****.

    • crazed_z06

      Well, the Tab4 isnt a “flagship” .. The Tab series have lower end specs and are cheaper.

      Now I dont understand wtf they’re doing with the “Tab Pro” and “Note 10.1 2014″ .. I guess the big difference there is the Tab Pro has no stylus?

  • elyssa doom

    This is an April Fools day joke you guys….

    • The Narrator

      that’s the joke itself, their products are so bad it looks like one

      • MicroNix

        Go away troll

        • Marikel

          He’s actually right when it comes to Samsung though…

          • MicroNix

            The ONLY thing he’s right on is free space. He obviously hasn’t touched an S5 yet or he’d STFU on all the other hatred comments. Fact of the matter is Samsung makes a solid device that doesn’t fit his personal taste but instead of a comment here and there, he trolls every single Samsung article with the same boring blather. He’s stepped over the border of stating an opinion here and there to an outright troll. His history speaks for itself. Broken record of the same crap over and over again. Totally reminds me of back when I had my OG Droid and the iPhone fanboys that would post article after article putting Android down and how their phone was so “superior”. It was old then and its old now. Except now its someone supposedly into Android ripping on the biggest part of the Android ecosystem.

          • Marikel

            I haven’t seen him hate on the S5, but I don’t really read the comments much. I think the S5 is a great phone, but the storage just kills it for me. I had decided that I’ll get an HTC One M8, but now I’m back to deciding between the M8 and the S5.

  • Mordecaidrake

    So now they’ve got the Tab4, Tab Pro and Note tablets?

    • http://tommydaniel.com Tommy Thompson

      and incoming Amoled Tabs. Whenever those show.

    • PoisonApple31

      Don’t forget the Note Pro tablets! I think there are 4 different lines, but I don’t think anyone can really tell unless they work at Samsung.

    • Cael

      You forgot Note Pro and Lite.
      Coming soon: Neo line of Tablets.

  • Ray

    The Price is the main concern…

  • Ben Murphy

    What’s the difference between these and the Note Series? A stylus ? Samsung, stahp!

    • http://tommydaniel.com Tommy Thompson

      The specs. These are all low end.

  • The Narrator

    and the fools will buy this over the Nexus 7. I see it all the time in Best Buy.

    • TheDave1022

      7″ screen is too small, 10.1″ is too big. Need an 8-9″ screen and as of now, no Nexus. That being said, I wont buy a touchwiz tablet. Hopefully an 8 or 8.9″ nexus tablet comes out soon

      • The Narrator

        8in Nexus tab incoming soon

        • TheDave1022

          That has been the rumor, so hopefully by IO

          • The Narrator

            Yep def I/O, or after that. Hopefully a new Nexus 10 too.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        There is the LG Tablet on Google Play

        • AbbyZFresh

          But it’s not a Nexus.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Nexus smexus there really isn’t a valuable difference between nexus and GPE

        • The Narrator

          Quite sexy too, aluminum, S600, SD slot, yum.

          • hkklife

            Too little internal storage on the LG.

          • The Narrator

            more than 12gb usable, and SD slot.

      • ThomasMoneyhon

        Yep since they are purposely breaking the rule of tablets to include buttons at one side and not onscreen they WONT get my money.

        • LionStone

          Yea I get it on their phone (actually I don’t but..) but a tablet? No, no bueno!

    • AbbyZFresh

      the n7 is overrated in my opinion. Coming from an owner of both 2012 and 2013 Nexus tablets.

      • The Narrator

        When compared to the competition and lower priced. 1080p, 2gb ram, quad core processor, good build quality, and for $199? Not over-rated.

      • ThomasMoneyhon

        Overrated? You find me another tablet (running android) without branding or logos on the front. Then we can talk.

      • C-Law

        I disagree. I’ve had both too and both are good. The 2013 is the best deal you could get in android tablets. My only complaint is battery life. I get around a week. My ipad2 last I checked had over 50 damn days on standby and still around 20% battery. I dunno how apple is so much better at battery standby time

        • Rob Schoenfeld

          It’s crazy if you think about it. My IPad will go weeks between charges, but an Iphone 5s can’t make it through the day. With phones like the Moto Maxx and LG G2 I go two days on a single charge.

    • UniBroW

      yes, but only people on here complain about the “low screen resolution” and to be honest, after having several Asus tablets, I’ll never buy another. I don’t care how good/great it gets reviewed, they are all junk in my opinion.

      • The Narrator

        It’s not just the screen resolution.

        “1.2 GHz quad-core processor, a 1280×800 WVGX display, 1.5GB of RAM, 3MP rear-facing and 1.3MP front-facing cameras, at least 8GB of internal storage”
