Samsung has finally taken the veils off its Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 device and from what seem to be the likely scenario, this could be Samsung’s offering in the budget tablet segment that typically starts at around the $200 mark. First off, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 does not look inspiring enough even with its Galaxy Note 8.0 like looks. That’s because we have already grown used to with it which in any case does look a lot like an oversized smartphone. The tablet even comes with the central home button flanked by two other capacitive controls on either side.
The tablet’s internals isn’t too exciting either, which further points to it being readied as a contender for the budget segment. A dual core chip rated at 1.2 GHz makes up the core and works in conjugation with a 1 GB RAM. Samsung hasn’t stated what processor has gone into the making of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 though analysts predict it could be the Marvell PXA986 chip with a Vivante GC1000 graphics chip.
The tablet would be available in internal memory size options of 8 GB or 16 GB with a microSD card slot to allow for more. Up front, its a 7 inch display having a rater unimpressive 1024 x 600 no of pixels. Also included is a 3 megapixel camera at the rear along with a 1.3 megapixel unit at the front.
Coming to the release dates, Samsung has not come out with anything concrete though the Wi-Fi only model is expected to be launched on May while the 3G version of the same could see a June release. Pricing is a secret so far though what does seems likely is that Samsung might price it around $200 or even lower to take on the low cost breed of tablet that has emerged on the tech scene off late.
