KOREAN HARDWARE MAKER Samsung on Monday announced two additional versions of its Galaxy Tab 3, adding 8in and 10.1in models to its lineup.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 looks nearly identical to the 8in Galaxy Note , although the firm seems to be pushing the device as more of an entertainment device than one for productivity. It also works as an ereader, Samsung claims, thanks to its "reading mode" technology that adjusts the tablet's backlight for comfortable reading.
The Galaxy Tab 8.0 runs Google's Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system, and Samsung has been quick to boast that it comes with features such as S Translator and Chaton, although it looks to be missing Eye Scroll and Smart Pause.There's no Intel processor, with the tablet instead opting for another dual-core 1.5GHz processor. There is, however, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and a 4,450mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 isn't dissimilar to its 8in sibling, although the firm is touting it as the better tablet for entertainment, thanks to its large screen and TV output capabilities. There's a dual-core 1.6GHz processor - which according to Reuters is an Intel chip, although Samsung has yet to confirm this - 3MP and 1.3MP cameras and up to 64GB of expandable storage.
