Samsung Announces Low-End, 7″ Galaxy Tab 3

Galaxy Tab 3Samsung is announcing on Monday a 7-inch tablet running Android 4.1 called the Galaxy Tab 3, but to our eyes, it doesn’t look much different from the current 7-inch Tab 2. The previous Tab’s 1 GHz dual-core processor gets upgraded to a 1.2GHz chip, and the newer tablet offers 16GB of internal storage as an option — its predecessor was limited to 8GB — but the 3-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera stay the same. The resolution of the Tab 3′s LCD is also unchanged at 1024 x 600, which isn’t much of a match for the 1280 x 800 display on the Nexus 7. So far there aren’t any details on price, but Samsung says the Wi-Fi-only Tab 3 will be available beginning in May, followed by a 3G model for making calls and browsing the web untethered sometime in June.
