Samsung is at it yet again; only on Friday did the company unveil its Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini device, with the Korean company has announced its next big thing in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.
The Galaxy Tab 3 will be available in an 8 inch and a 10.1 inch option, and aim to build on existing Samsung tablets such as the Galaxy Tab 2 and the Galaxy Note 8.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8 inch has been designed specifically to be held in one hand, with all its functions built around the device providing an excellent entertainment experience. According to Samsung’s press release which emerged this morning, the device will have an ultra-slim bezel, making the most of Samsung’s ‘reading mode’, a new technology that provides users with the optimal reading conditions, including a lightly illuminated screen and lightweight feel.
The Tab 3 8 inch is also said to offer Samsung’s Sound Alive for audio and Dolby Surround Sound for video, making it the ultimate device for multimedia fans. Other apps the Tab 3 8 inch variation will share with Samsung’s current flagship device, the Galaxy S4, include S translate, Group play and Story Album.
On a technical note, the 8 inch Tab 3 will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, run Jelly Bean 4.2v and a 5MP rear facing camera.
The 10.1 inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has been designed to be the leading 10 inch tablet in the market, and its specs match this aim. With a powerful 1.6GHz dual-core processor and the most up-to-date version of Android’s Jelly Bean OS, the device offers what Samsung has claimed to be the best family-friendly tablet out there.
The device is equipped with Samsung’s Smart Remote technology, turning the tablet into a TV remote, allowing the tablet to be used for gaming by the kids, and for movie watching by the adults.
The 10 inch Tab 3 is a step up from its predecessor- the Tab 2- which has a slower 1GHz processor and the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android.
