Samsung Announces the New Galaxy Tab 3.0


Samsung has added a new tablet to its ever-growing line-up of Android devices, this time the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. The tablet has a 7 inch display and runs on a dual-core processor. It follows the same design language (and the build materials) as the current Galaxy products.

The tablet is by all means meant to be a mid-range offering. Its 7 inch display is of WSVGA resolution i.e. 600 x 1024 pixels. And judging by the screen size, it’s a Nexus 7 competitor.

As expected, it follows the footsteps of the current Galaxy line-up of devices by featuring virtually the same design as nearly all of them. That too is not necessarily a bad thing but haters won’t find the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 adorable either.

Under the hood, the tablet runs on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor along with 1GB of RAM. There will be 8 or 16GB internal storage options, expandable via a microSD card slot.

On the software side of things, the tablet runs on Android 4.1, which is not exactly the latest but is not exactly a bad thing to have. And of course, all the famous Samsung apps come along with the tablet too.

Here are the full specifications of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0.

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean customized with Nature UI
  • 7 inch display with resolution of 600 x 1024 pixels
