Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 3 on Monday morning, a new Android tablet that will make its debut in May. The device is equipped with a 7-inch 1024 x 600-pixel display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 3-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat 16GB or 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot for adding up to 64GB of additional storage, a 4,000mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and more. Samsung will also launch a 3G version of the device in June.
The Galaxy Tab 2 made its debut in 2012 and the Galaxy Tab 3 isn’t much of an upgrade. That device had a similar display but a slightly slower 1GHz dual-core processor and a VGA front-facing camera. It’s still available for $249 and we imagine the Galaxy Tab 3 will replace its predecessor for the same price, although Samsung didn’t reveal pricing details. For most purposes you’re probably still much better off buying the Nexus 7.
