We have already seen the 7-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, which was announced back in April. Now Samsung has announced two new variants in the form of an 8-inch and 10.1-inch model.
The 8-inch model improves upon the 7-inch by offering a slightly bigger and higher resolution 1280 x 800 display, a faster 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera on the back, 1.3 megapixel on the front, 16/32GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 1.5GB of RAM, LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth connectivity, 4,450mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The 10.1-inch model has similar specifications, including the same 1280 x 800 resolution, now stretched over 10.1-inches. Only differences here are a faster 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 6,800mAh battery and strangely, a lower resolution 3 megapixel camera and only 1GB of RAM. Also, as you can see from the image above, Samsung has completely dumped the on-screen keys in favor of physical buttons below the display.
Although there is no mention of it in Samsung’s press release, Reuters claims that both these devices are running on Intel’s Atom processors. We will need to get our hands on them to find out which exact processor is running under the hood.
