Samsung Update Galaxy Tab4 Range
Samsung has announced a trio of new Galaxy tablets, all of which are part of its updated Galaxy Tab4 range. The new devices replace the aging Galaxy Tab 3 models, which were released last year, and didn’t offer much over the previous Tab 2 hardware. What has it got for us this time?
The largest of the three is the Galaxy Tab4 10.1, which has a 1280×800 pixel, 10.1-inch touchscreen. An unnamed 1.2GHz, quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM powers the tablet, plus there is 16GB of internal storage space. Other features include a microSD card slot, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel video call cam, plus the option of adding 4G LTE connectivity. Keeping all this up and running is a 6800mAh battery.
Samsung has also launched the Galaxy Tab4 8.0, which has an 8-inch screen boasting the same resolution as the 10.1-inch tablet. The processor is also a 1.2GHz quad-core chip with 1.5GB of RAM. Other specs remain the same too, with the main difference being the screen size and the battery capacity, which drops to 4450mAh. Finally, there’s the Galaxy Tab4 7.0, and the good news is the specs are the same as the 10.1-inch and the 8.0-inch models. The only choice you’ll have to make, when choosing a Tab4 tablet, is how large you want it to be.
Android KitKat is installed on all three tablets, complete with multi-window app support, and Samsung will produce both black and a white models. Prices have yet to be confirmed, but they’re due to go on sale before the end of June.
