Samsung announces Galaxy Tab4 series in 10.1-inch, 8.0-inch and 7.0-inch screen sizes
Following a string of leaks and rumors, the Galaxy Tab4 series of tablets has been made official by Samsung as part of the company’s mid-range tablet lineup. Coming in 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch models, the three tablets run on Android 4.4 KitKat and are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. The screen resolution is 1280×800 across all three tablets, and other shared specs include a 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and 16GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD slot (there’s also an 8GB option on the Galaxy Tab4 7.0.)
The 10.1-inch and 8-inch models carry a 6,800mAh and 4,450mAh battery respectively – the battery capacity isn’t mentioned for the 7-inch variant, but it should be the same as that of the 8-inch model. All three tablets will have Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE variants, and come with the usual assortment of software features found on Samsung devices, including Multi Window, Group Play, WatchON and Samsung Link.
Availability of the Galaxy Tab4 lineup begins sometime in Q2 this year in black and white color options. Going by the mid-range specs, the three models should be priced similarly to how the third-generation Galaxy Tab lineup was priced at launch, though official details on pricing weren’t mentioned in Samsung’s press release.
