Rumors and render leaks were previously hinting at Samsung’s refreshed Galaxy Tab lineup, and it happens that the South Korean electronics giant has finally revealed the Galaxy Tab 4 series, with 7, 8 and 10.1-inch models in tow.
As with previous Galaxy Tab series Samsung aims to provide distinct variants sporting roughly the same internals. – The trio all feature the same 1.2GHz quad-core SoC (exact make and model unspecified) under the hood paired with a 1.5GB of RAM and 1,280×800 display along with 3MP main shooter backed with a 1.3MP front facing camera. All three slates will come with 16GB of on-board memory as well as a Micro-SD slot, the 7-incher will however also be offered with a 8GB model.
On the software side you’ll find Android 4.4.2 KitKat coupled with Samsung’s own TouchWiz framework, UI and a boatload of bundled Samsung Apps. Standard connectivity features include WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, GLONASS and Bluetooth.
The Galaxy Tab 4 series will be offered in WiFi-only or 3G/4G options. – The 7-inch variant will be available in LTE and Wi-Fi-only variants, the 8-incher will follow with Wi-Fi / 3G or LTE variants, and finally the beefier 10.1-inch tablet with Wi-Fi/3G and LTE options only.
The 8-inch model will sport a 4,450 mAh battery while the 10.1-incher will feature a fatter 6,800 mAh battery, there’s unfortunately no word on the battery capacity for the 7-inch version.
The pricing hasn’t yet been announced but we expect Samsung to set the cap at around $300.
