Samsung Announces Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1

Is a morning really thick with ads, and so as not to leave the whole scene to ASUS and Acer, Samsung has seen fit to launch new Galaxy Tab 3, of which we heard for a long time.

Aboard the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 we find a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor accompanied with 1.5 GB RAM and “hidden” from an 8-inch WXGA TFT display (1280 x 800); the rear camera is from 5 megapixels while the front stops at 1.3 megapixels. The 16 or 32 GB internal memory (expandable) and battery from 4,450 mAh will complete the technical framework, to which we add variants Wi-Fi only, 3 g and LTE, all with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Much like the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, on which we always find the three variants listed above, but a slightly faster processor (dual-core 1.6 GHz), 10.1 inch display 1280 x 800 resolution, only the additional 1 GB of RAM, and 6,800 mAh battery. The camera back for more was reduced to 3 megapixels while the front one is unchanged.

Both tablets will be available this month at a price not yet announced, but judging by the technical characteristics we imagine that may cost more or less the same figure, given that the model from 10.1 “has just enough processor clocked just over, but it loses half a gigabyte of ram and 2 megapixel camera. Photos and press release after the jump.
