The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has gone official, with the South Korean tech giant confirming the specs of their upcoming Android tablet. And rather than wowing with top-notch specs, it looks more like a safe approach to compete against cheap rivals like the Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire.
A seven-inch model, it packs in a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and will sell in either 8GB or 16GB variants. MicroSD support will allow for up to 64GB expansion of storage.
Front and rear cameras feature at 1.3MP and 3MP respectively, with a solid-sounding 4,000mAh battery installed.
Screen resolution is an acceptable 1024 x 600, using a TFT display, while Android 4.1 is the OS version of choice.
Wi-Fi models will launch globally in May, with 3G versions to follow in June. No word yet on a 4G version, nor confirmed pricing points, but we’ll keep you posted.
