The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 family is coming to the United States — for those interested — starting July 3rd at $199. Sizes include 7, 8 and 10.1 inch versions will be available from Best Buy, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Office Depot, and Samsung’s own store. As a refresher, the entry-level Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is priced up at $199 and sports a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of storage (plus microSD expansion), and with a 7-inch 1,024 x 600 TFT display. Samsung’s built-in software improvements to Android 4.1 are also included.
The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 bumps the specs a bit more: an Exynos 1.5GHz dual-core processor, higher-resolution (1,280 x 800) TFT display, Android 4.2, a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p video capture, 16GB internal storage, and with extra space available through microSD and 1.5GB of RAM. This also bumps the price to $299.
As for the cream of the crop, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 goes for $399, with an Intel Z2560 processor configured at 1.6GHz dual-core, 1GB of RAM, and the same display setup as the smaller 8-inch model, but with a 5-megapixel back-facing camera. Like the rest of the Tab 3 family, the 10.1″ model has an IR blaster for using the Samsung WatchON TV app to control home entertainment devices. All models will come in white or brown; pre-orders start tomorrow.
