Samsung announced two new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablets today, expanding its tablet line with new Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch and 10.1-inch devices.
The new 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 is intended for one-handed use (though we have no idea how), and features a design similar to the Galaxy Note 8.0. The tablet sports an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel display with 189 pixels per inch (PPI), leaving the device’s pixel density somewhere between the iPad Mini‘s 163 PPI and the Nexus 7‘s 216 PPI. Under the hood, the new tablet features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4,450 mAh battery, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of expandable memory. It also has a 5-megapixel camera.
The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 features similar specs but with a larger screen and less RAM. It has a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800-pixel display with 149 PPI, a 6,800mAh battery, 1GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of memory. The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 has a 3-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel camera for video chats and self portraits.
Both tablets will be sold globally starting early this month, though pricing was not revealed.
