Murmurings  of late have suggested Samsung would soon be introducing the next generation in their age-old Galaxy Tab lineup, and those rumors have come true today. Samsung has announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 series, which consists of 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch options.

The tablets are all quite similar, specs wise, though that isn’t much of a surprise. And they won’t impress as this is positioned to be an affordable range of tablets for those without the dough to spend on more bells and whistles. Here’s what’s coming your way (differences noted in parenthesis):

  • 1280 x 800 resolution
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage with microSD up to 64GB (7.0 has an 8GB option, and only has up to 32GB for the 3G/WiFi versions)
  • 1.3MP rear camera, 3MP front camera
  • WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, GPS w/ GLONASS
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 4G LTE
  • Battery: 6,800mAh for 10.1-inch, 4,450mAh for 8.0-inch, unknown for 7-inch

Samsung didn’t go into extreme detail about it all, but you can expect the typical Galaxy Tab experience (which includes a not-so-supercharged version of TouchWiz).


The devices will be available in the second half of this year (that starts today, if you haven’t been paying attention), though no pricing details were given at this time.

    While some companies don’t have their fiscal calendar match up to the calendar year, for most of us the second half of the year starts July 1 (technically it’s 12pm on July 2 in non-leap years).

    • No_Nickname90

      Okay, that explains some things. I was like, we’re still in the 4th month and to my knowledge 6 was still half of 12.

    • Jarrad Whitaker

      Does the writeup mean to say second quarter?

  • Roaduardo

    Samsung and their nutty screen sizes.

  • Mark Wheeler

    I understand 7 and 10 but why 8?

    • Christian Giroux

      7 is still a bit small for reading magazines and 10 is a bit heavy to hold on for long periods.

    Not being a specs ninja but why

  • toomuchgame441

    How does the “second half of the year” start “today”…? If you haven’t been paying attention that usually starts around July 1st.

    • hkklife

      I think that was supposed to read “second quarter of this year”

  • ronk2010

    Oh, I figured Apple had the rights to July being the start of the second half of the year. Samsung had to move theirs to April to avoid another lawsuit. ;-)

  • Christian Giroux

    I hate when they say quad core CPU but do not say which one. At 1.2Ghz I am afraid of what it might be.

  • Jason Farrell

    Physical nav buttons, especially on a tablet == NEXT.

    Crossing my fingers for a Nexus 8″

  • steveb944

    Oh damn I thought that this was an April Fool’s. Joke’s on me

  • thatcrazyone

    huh the 10″ specs seem a little low to me but still cool if the price is right

  • scoter man1

    The biggest April fools here is that on the fourth iteration, Samsung is still using a horrible 1280×800 screen over 10″. I recently sold a SGT2 I had laying around. Unusably slow, horrible screen, the list goes on.
