Remember that Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite that leaked out yesterday? Well it’s back today, but there’s one big difference between yesterday and today’s appearances: This time, it’s official.
Samsung today announced its new Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7″), a 7-inch Android tablet that looks to be a refreshed version of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 that launched last year. The new Tab3 Lite features a 7-inch 1024×600 display and 1.2GHz dual-core processor, just like the Tab 3 7.0, as well as a familiar rounded white body with a physical home button. Also crammed into the Tab3 Lite’s 9.7mm-thick frame is 1GB of RAM, 8GB storage, microSD card slot and a 3600mAh battery. Samsung has preloaded its new slate with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as well as its custom TouchWiz overlay.
The Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7″) will be offered in black and white as well as Wi-Fi-only and 3G variants. Samsung says that it plans to sell its latest tablet globally, but there’s no mention of how much it plans to ask for it. Considering its spec sheet, though, I’m sure that the Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7″) will end up being fairly easy on the wallet. If Samsung can price it correctly, this thing could make for a nice entry-level tablet or a beater device that you don’t mind just tossing in a bag when going out.
