Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite announced as an affordable 7-inch tablet

Galaxy-Tab3-Lite_01

Samsung has added yet another new device to their growing line of Samsung Galaxy Tab devices. This one is the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite, a 7-inch slate meant to get into your hands for very little money. The specs on this thing wouldn’t excite many of you, though they don’t sound bad for someone who wants a device for light entertainment and learning:

  • 7-inch 1024 x 600 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8BGB of internal storage
  • 2 megapixel rear camera
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • GPS
  • 3,600mAh battery

And that’s pretty much the gist of it. You can expect Samsung’s custom user interface, known by most as TouchWiz, on top, giving you access to features like panorama shots, Samsung Link and more.

 

The device is slated for a global release in both black and white, and will come in WiFi and WiFi + 3G configurations. That’s about all we know for now, and while pricing isn’t set in stone just yet, Samsung suggests this thing could come as cheap as around $130 for the WiFi-only model.

    1gb of ram on a tablet in 2014 is insane regardless of the price. a very poor rear camera with no front facing camera, fail. 8gb of internal storage with no mention of sd card slot, ur social media apps and google apps will eat that up. id rather have an old kindle fire for about the same price.

    ok it does have sd card slot but still!

    Same specs as the tab 1 and tab 2…they literally keep releasing the same tablet every year

    • Steven Skwarkowski

      Don’t forget the tab 3 was barely an upgrade to the tab 2

    I hope they don’t become like Apple releasing the same stupid tablet and calling it Lite.
    Kinda sounds like ipad air the same dumb mini a little lighter renamed air.
    Apple is already full of hot air. I hope Samsung doesn’t become like them.

    Slap a higher resolution screen on there and I’d buy it for $150.00.

    Save your money and wait for note 8 price to continue to come down. The galaxy tab really never did anything for me because an N7 is so much cheaper with comparable or better resolution. If you can still find N7 2012. Seen it on Groupon for 120 bucks. Or if you really want better resolution N7 2013 still about 227 best buy and staples.Both cheaper and just as good as galaxy tab some believe better, because of always running latest stock android version. The ability to go Paperless though with the note convinced me to buy a galaxy note 8.Ok 130 would be cheaper but not by much. by the time it releases nexus 7 2013 price might drop again.

      True. I sold my Nexus 7 1st Gen to my friend for $50. I couldn’t really justify a price for it since it was already like cheap to buy to begin with.

      He’s super happy with it, for obvious reasons. It’s a good tablet. Those specs for a low price (referring to Google’s pricing now)? If you’re trying to pick up a tablet at a cheap price, why would you go elsewhere?

    This tablet can actually be super useful if you use it not as a primary tablet, but a secondary one. Whether it’s for a kid or just a couchside tool for those quick IMDB/wikipedia lookups when you’re watching TV, I can see a lot of use for it. Heck, use it as a digital picture frame if you’re still into that. At this price it’s almost affordable enough to embed it into furniture around the house with dedicated purposes. I can even picture it being used commercially. Gone with the paper menus at restaurants. Tap tap what you want and it comes to your table. Super useful for those all-you-can-eat buffets.

    Samsung don’t do affordable too well. It’s usually utter crap, unlike their high-end devices.

  • No_Nickname90

    I’m sorry, but the Nexus 7 tablets own the affordable tablet market.

    I mean, why would I get that when I can get a Nexus 7? I’m not trying to sound fanboyish, I’m trying to sound reasonable.
