Detailed specifications of two upcoming Samsung tablets have just surfaced. The third generation of the Galaxy Tab mid-range lineup will feature a couple of slates armed with a 10.1" and an 8" display, respectively. Interestingly, the picture that came along with the leak confirms the hardware home button, which is still unusual for Android slates.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will run on Andrdoid 4.1 Jelly Bean and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and will have 1GB of RAM. That might as well be a typo as the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is said to have 2 gigs of operating memory. Unfortunately, earlier reports of a 2560 x 1600 pixel display weren't confirmed and the new rumors point to a resolution of just 1280 x 800 pixels.
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will reportedly have 16GB of internal memory, which will be expandable through the microSD card slot. Connectivity options will include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, standard microUSB port and, depending on the version, HSPA or LTE. Power will be supplied by a 7,000 mAh battery, while imaging will be taken care of by a 3MP main camera and a 1.3MP front-facing snapper.
The larger of the two upcoming slates will reportedly measure 256.7 x 175.3 x 8.7 mm and weigh just 533g. That will make it both thinner and lighter than the Galaxy Note 10.1, which is the current Samsung flagship tablet.
Moving on to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, we learn that it will feature the same CPU as its bigger brother. The 8" display will have a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and will be your window to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at launch.
Connectivity options and cameras are the same as on the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, while the battery has been trimmed down to 4,500 mAh capacity. If the rumors turn out true, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will be impressively slim at 6.95mm, but will weigh 330g - about the same as the Galaxy Note 8.0.
The 3G versions of the Galaxy Tab 3 duo are expected to come to the market in May, while the 4G units will go on sale in June-July. Pricing of either device is unknown at this point.
Plz. Friend tell me that this tab 3 is best or not i want to buy and one thing more when it will be in market.
On the 10.1 version I'm not sure this is enough to make me buy. I have a Samsung S4 and gutted that Apps can't be moved to SD Card, just moved from iPhone and this is not what I expect from Google... The fear is 10.1 will behave similar and the scree...
