Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Would Come In 3 Size Variants

Samsung has officially announced that the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 will be offered in 3 size variants. A 7-inch Tab 3 was already seen before and now Samsung has revealed that there would be 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants as well. The tablets differ not only in size but also in their hardware  pecifications and obviously, their pricing. So which one's the right variant for you? Read on as I list down the specs of all three variants to make choosing the right one easier for you.
Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch: The &-inch variant has low-end specs and is targeted for those seeking an affordable Tablet. Tab 3 7-inch comes with a dual core 1.2GHz processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM. The 7-inch display has a resolution of 1024x600 pixels. There's a 3-MP camera at the back and a 1.3-MP camera at the front for video calling and self portraits. the device would be powered by a 4,450mAh battery. The device would come the option of 8GB of 16GB storage which can be expanded up to 64Gb via microSD card slot. There would be a wi-Fi only version and a Wi-Fi/3G version of the tab. Connectivity options include bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 and A-GPS. The tab would run on Android 4.1 out of the box. No word on the pricing as of yet.

Galaxy Tab 3 8.0-inch: The 8.0-inch variant is directly in competition with iPad Mini. The Tablet has some better specification. It comes with a 1.5Ghz processor and 1.5GB of RAM. The 8-inch display sports a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. Rear Camera is of 5-megapixels and front camera is of 1.3-Megapixel. The device is powered by a similar 4,450mAh battery as well. Running on Android 4.2 OS, the device would come in 32GB and 64GB variants with luxury to expand storage via MicroSD card. Connectivity options include bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 and A-GPS. The device would come in Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE variants. No word on pricing yet but availability is stated to be June 2013.

Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch: The best-in-class is Tab 3 10.1 variant. The device comes with 1.6 Ghz dual Core Intel Atom Z2560 processor instead of the ARM cortex chip found on other variants of Tab 3. The device has 1 GB of RAM. The 10.1-inch display has a resolution of 1280x800 pixels which might not be sufficient for a 10-inch tablet. The device would come in 16GB and 32GB variants with option of expansion via MicroSD card slot. The camera however, is a 3.0-MP shooter which is less powerful than 8.0-inch variant. There's also a 1.3-MP camera at the front. The device runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 port and A-GPS as well. Its availability is stated for June 2013 as well.

Will you be buying anyone of these devices?


  1. I am thinking about buying one of them. Which one should i buy? Please help.

    1. I think you should choose one according to your need. If you want a casual e-book reader, browsing and multimedia device, go for 7-inch variant. If that seems a bit small in size, go for 8.0-inch. It offers more screen space and better specs. If you ain't worried about the budget and want high-end specs, 10.1-inch variant is perfect. It also has Intel atom chip and that's a bonus.
