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 Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet computer designed and manufactured by Samsung. It features a 10.1-inch screen and is marketed as a platform for multimedia consumption including movies, music, and web browsing. The Note 10.1 also features the use of a stylus named the S-Pen. The stylus is meant to be used as an input device for sketching and note-taking. The Note 10.1 runs on Android 4.0. The stylus and the tablet work seamlessly together and also have a palm rejection software. The palm rejection software makes sure to reject any other body parts when the stylus is connected to the screen, enabling people to place their hand on the tablet as they write. Another new feature that was launched with the tablet was the Multiscreen option. The multiscreen feature allows the user to open and work on two apps simultaneously. However, it is currently limited to only six apps (S Note, Polaris Office, Video Player, gallery, Email, and the Android 4.0 browser) that can be opened side-by-side.

 

The Note 10.1 is available with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB storage capacity. The models are further bifurcated under Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi and 3G, as well as Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE. The tablet houses1.4 GHz Quad-core Cortex-A9 processor with 2 GB RAM, working seamlessly without any lag. The Note 10.1 offers 5 MP autofocus rear camera and a 1.9 MP front camera for video calling. The tablet also houses a powerful 7000 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of approximately 33 hours. It also offers a variety of features including IR Blaster, which allows the tablet to become into a fully-functional remote control. It works with Peel’s Smart Remote app that also displays a list of shows or movies that are currently playing on the local provider’s channels.
