Samsung announces the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3

GALAXY Tab 3 7 inch_001_WiFi

The next logical successor to the original Samsung Galaxy Tab is here. Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, a 7-inch tablet, that tailors to folks looking for an entry-level device. The aforementioned 7-inch display sports 1024×600 resolution, and if that wasn’t enough to drive the “entry-level” feeling home we’re also getting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 3 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera.

Other Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 specs include 8 or 16GB of internal storage with the option to expand that to 64GB using a microSD card, WiFi N, Bluetooth 3.0, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 4,000 mAh battery, aGPS and there will be a model with HSPA+ connectivity.

Samsung expects to roll the WiFi version out starting this May, with the 3G edition getting its time to shine in June. Samsung notes different regions will see rollouts starting at different times so we can’t be too sure about exact release dates until the details are announced.

    • No_Nickname90

      IKR!? There’s no point in these any more. You would sell them as cheap as the Nexus series, but then it’s like why not just get a Nexus? Google and Amazon are going to own the cheap tablet market.

  • Jonathan DeJesus

    I’m sick of all these shiny plastic devices from Sammy. I get my HTC One tomorrow, and will put my GS 3 for sale on Craigslist. Hopefully Sammys design changes by next year so I can buy an all metal GS 5. That’ll be sweet

  • Steven Cannan

    What? it’s not a phone?? ;P that’s new!

    • Matthew Merrick

      The cellular version will be ;)
      (not that there’s ANY reason to buy this…)

    Worryingly I bet it still sells more than the Nexus 7 / Nexus 7 2. Samsung have seems to have prime positions in Currys, PC World etc in the UK.. Also they are usually in demo mode whereas the homescreen of the Nexus 7 usually looks like a jumble sale after everyone has messed around with it.

  • Wonderbird

    Poor resolution. The same main complaint about the Galaxy Tab 2 7″ I already have.

  • Steven Skwarkowski

    Why is this nearly identical to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0? I have one and the specs are nearly the same

    Tab 2 7.0 VS Tab 3 7.0:

    -CPU: 1Ghz vs 1.2 Ghz, both dual core
    -Resolution: Both 1024×600
    -Internal storage: 8gb, 16gb, 32gb VS 8gb, 16gb, both expandable
    -Battery: Both 4,000 MAH
    -Internal memory: 1gb vs ???

    So the only differences are: Added HSPA+ versus standard, added .2ghz to the CPU and removed the 32gb option for internal. Hopefully they went to a standard microUSB charger this time.

    This is the laziest refresh ever! Horrible Samsung. Id rather go buy a used Tab 2 and save the money!

  • Don_SoLow

    Now we know for sure that the Note is their flagship tablet now.
