You thought after the success of the Galaxy S4, Samsung would lay down for a while didn’t you?

Nothing seems to be holding the Korean tech giant back these days. In a press release dated yesterday (3 June 2013) Samsung finally introduced the Galaxy Tab 3 in 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants which is said to be available globally beginning of June…. Erm, next week maybe?

This comes after Samsung launched the 7-inch version of the Tab 3 on April 27.

Galaxy Tab 8-inch

Ideally designed to be held in one hand, Samsung dubs the 8-incher to be the optimal device for viewing video’s, playing enhanced games and reading e-books anytime, This model has a TFT display sporting a 1,280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution, a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing camera. It has a quite a heavy heart: a 1.5GHz dual core processor with no word on the manufacturer, 1.5GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB storage configurations.

A micro-SD slot is also present, supporting up to 64GB cards. All powered by a 4,450mAh battery which provides the necessary juice,

The 10-incher on the other hand is said to be the perfect tablet for the entire family. More focused on portable home entertainment, the 10-inch model runs on a 1.6GHz Dual Core processor from Intel (1GB of RAM), the same WXGA resolution across its display but carries a 3-megapixel rear camera and again, the same 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. Storage options are the same as those of the 8-inch Tab 3.

Both the 8-inch and 10.1-inch models run on Android 4.2 witch the choice of WiFi-only (dual-band, a/b/g/n), 3G (HSPA+) and LTE variants.
