Samsung Unveils New Galaxy Tab 3 Budget-Friendly Family Members With 10.1 and 8-inch Displays

gtab 10-4

Samsung announced two new members of its Galaxy Tab 3 family this morning, the Tab 3 10.1 and Tab 3 8. As one would assume from the naming scheme, one has a 10.1″ display, while the other sports an 8″ display. Keep in mind that the Tab family is Samsung’s budget-friendly line of tablets, while the Note line is their higher-end range. So yes, we’re looking at budget tablets that will likely drop at low prices across the globe.

With the Tab 3 10.1, you are looking at a 1280×800 display, dual-core processor, only 1GB of RAM, low-res cameras, and Android 4.2.2. With the Tab 3 8, you have an 8″1280×800 display, dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, and Android 4.2.2 all wrapped into the body of a tablet that matches the form factor of the iPad Mini. I know that may sound ridiculous, but just look at it.

Both tablets, along with the previously announced Tab 3 7, will be available globally in June.  (more…)

According to Phone Arena, they have themselves a couple pictures that are of the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung. The above image shows a smaller tablet with overly sized icons and a strange looking button “thing” on the left side of the device. Naturally, the picture is blurry and we can’t make out the model name on the box, but it clearly says “Galaxy tab 3″ above it. I do have a few discrepancies with this image, but I’ll get into that down below.  (more…)
