Difference between Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0

Key Difference: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is named after the 10.1-inch screen that is offered on the device. The device comes with the same resolution as its 8-inch counterpart, which reduces its ppi density to 149 ppi. The device will be powered by 1.6 GHz dual core Atom processor provided by Intel and will offer 1 GB RAM. Samsung has added another tablet to its ever expanding line-up. The Tab 3 8-inch follows the Tab 3 7-inch that was launched earlier in 2013. The tablet comes with an 8-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen that offers approximately 189 ppi pixel density. The device comes in three different variants: Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G.

Samsung has taken a very innovative approach to try and cater every customer in the market. The company’s approach includes releasing one model and then releasing variations of that same model. Following the launch of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (7-inch) and Tab 3 8.0 (8-inch), the company has announced the launch of Tab 3 10.1 (10.1-inch). This particular Tab also comes in three different models that further try to please its many customers in the market. One model is basic Wi-Fi and does not offer any GSM support; the second model offers 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi support, while the third model offers 2G, 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. This approach allows users to spend on what they need.

The Tab 3 10.1 is named after the 10.1-inch screen that is offered on the device. The device comes with the same resolution as its 8-inch counterpart, which reduces its ppi density to 149 ppi. The tablet comes in the same polycarbonate that is found on the Galaxy phones and has a thick white bezel on the front. The screen has a hardware home button flanked by two capacitive buttons for Back and Menu. In landscape mode, the top of the device has the speaker and the mic. There is nothing else on the front. The sides have a metal band and also various ports including the volume rocker, microSD card slot and the charging port. The back of the device has the Samsung logo above which the rear camera is placed.

The company has added certain extra features in the 10.1 inch but has also slashed a bunch of high-end features. All three models will be available with Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean that will be customized with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX UI. The device will be powered by 1.6 GHz dual core Atom processor provided by Intel. It will offer 1 GB RAM.

The Tab 3 10.1 will come with two different storage capacities 16 GB and 32 GB, which can be further expanded by 64 GB. The device also offers both rear and front cameras but has reduced the MPs offered in the rear camera to 3MP, while the front has a 1.3 MP camera. The device comes with a non-removable 6800 mAh battery. The company has also added a bunch of apps that makes the device more user friendly such as Samsung Hub, Samsung Kies, Samsung Kies Air, Samsung ChatON, TV-Out (enables users to connect the tab to the TV), etc.

Samsung has added another tablet to its ever expanding line-up. The Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch follows the Tab 3 7-inch that was launched earlier in 2013. The tablet is supposed to fill the gap between the 7-inch and the 10-inch tablet. Many are also inferring that the tablet may be launched as a cheaper variant to the Galaxy Note 8.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch comes with an 8-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen that offers approximately 189 ppi pixel density. The device comes in three different variants: Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G. The Wi-Fi model does not offer calling capabilities, while the models do. Other than this major difference the rest of the models are almost the same differing only in weight. All of the variants come with the TouchWiz UI that is found in all of the recent Samsung devices. The device resembles the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of design. It has the same curved corners with a white bezel. There is one hardware button in the middle under the screen that is flanked by two capacitive buttons.

A camera and a mic are placed on the top of the display screen along with the proximity sensor. The right side of the device houses the power button, the volume rocker and the USB port, while the left side of the device has the microSD card port. The back has a camera and the LED flashlight. The device is powered by a 1.5 GHz Dual-cored processor; however, the company has yet to announce which processor it is using. Many techies suspect it is the new Intel Atom processor.

Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch is available with two different internal storage capacities: 16 GB and 32 GB, which can be expanded by 64 GB via microSD card. All of the variants are available with 1.5 GB RAM. The device houses a 5MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front camera. The 5MP camera can record 720p video. The tablet comes with Google Android v 4.2.2 Jelly out of the box. The company has also added a bunch of apps that makes the device more user friendly such as Samsung Hub, Samsung Kies, Samsung Kies Air, Samsung ChatON, S Translator, S Travel, etc.

The information for the detailed table about the two devices has been taken from Samsung Mobile Press website and GSMArena.com.
