It seems that Samsung is preparing to unveil three new Galaxy Tab slates, at least according to the latest leak.
NDTV Gadgets reports that info has been spilled on the trio of slates which will be Galaxy Tab 4 models, the successors to the, erm, Galaxy Tab 3 range obviously enough. There’ll be a 7in, 8in and 10.1in model as expected, with Wi-Fi-only, 3G and 4G LTE options.
According to the leak, all of the new tablets will have a rather unremarkable 1280 x 800 resolution display – the same as the Tab 3. We’d be surprised if this was the case, as the Tab 3 was already put to shame by some of the far higher-res displays seen on the likes of the Nexus and iPad slates. A 1.2GHz quad-core CPU is also rumoured across the board.
Less surprising is the fact that they’ll all be running Android 4.4 KitKat, as you would hope.
The Tab 4 7in and 8in models are expected to carry a 3-megapixel rear snapper, with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The Tab 4 10.1in will up the ante to an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, and a 2-megapixel front-facer.
In terms of RAM, the 7in tablet will have 1GB on board, as will the base 8in model – but the 8in LTE variant will up that to 1.5GB, the same amount as the 10.1in tablet. Storage is rumoured to be 8GB for the 7in tablet, and 16GB for the other two, although all will be expandable via microSD.
No pricing or availability details have been leaked, so we’ll just have to see if this one pans out. If Samsung is indeed keeping the same displays from the previous generation Galaxy Tab, maybe this is a play to knock out a more competitive pricing scheme.
