Samsung has unveiled an update to one of its successful lines of tablets, though it appears to be a mild upgrade rather than a complete product overhaul. The Galaxy Tab 3 houses an upgraded dual-core 1.2GHz processor, up from the 1GHz version used in the Galaxy Tab 2
, along with options for 16GB of internal storage with extra microSD expansion.
Running on Android 4.1, the Galaxy Tab 3 has a rear three-megapixel camera with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing version, and a seven-inch TFT display running at a resolution of 1024x600. Standard Wi-Fi connectivity, Wi-Fi Channel Bonding on 2.4GHz and 5GHz, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 3.0, and USB 2.0 connection support are also included, along with a 4,000mAh battery.
The Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab 3 will go on sale world-wide from May, with a 3G version said to be following in June. No pricing details have been revealed, though its relatively-low resolution display compared to the Google Nexus 7
suggests it may be a fairly cheap prospect.
