The South Korean electronics maker's latest tablet offering sports a 1024x600 pixel screen -- although perhaps underwhelming at today's standards -- but is able to support full 1080p HD playback. The Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and is available with either 8GB or 16GB of storage and 1GB of RAM.
In addition, Samsung's new mobile device comes with a microSD slot for up to 64GB of additional storage space.
The tablet uses the latest Android operating system, 4.1 Jelly Bean. In addition, the 111.1x188x9.9mm tablet sports a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera system. The Wi-Fi-only version weighs 302 grams, whereas the Wi-Fi/3G model is a touch heavier at 306 grams.
According to Samsung, the Wi-Fi version will be available worldwide from next month, whereas the Wi-Fi/3G version will be hitting store shelves in June. Tablet availability will depend on individual markets, and the device will be rolled out gradually.
Pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is yet to be released.
