Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 Lands June 26

Looking for a new Android tablet on Verizon? This week you’ll be able to pick up the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0. The tablet started hitting the U.S. market last month with only a Wi-Fi chip, but is now launching with 4G LTE connectivity. As a quick refresher, it’s a relatively entry-level device with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.4 KitKat, a 3-megapixel camera, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and an 8-inch display with a 1290 x 800-pixel resolution.

Verizon isn’t treating it as an entry-level device, though, and has it priced at $379.99 with a new two-year contract, which seems a bit expensive for what you’re getting in terms of pure hardware specs. Customers interested in picking it up in the near future can snag it for $279.99 with a new two-year contract for a limited time, however.

You may also want to check out the brand new Galaxy Tab S family, if you have a few extra bucks to spare, which is arguably the best duo of tablets that Samsung has ever launched. They’re not available with 4G LTE yet, so if that’s a deal-breaker then the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 might be the way to go.
