SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA — Samsung unveiled its latest 7-inch Galaxy Tab tablet but hasn’t released information on U.S. availability or price.
The 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 with Wi-Fi will be available globally beginning this month followed in June by a cellular 3G version. The product will be rolled out gradually, the company said.
The device will be Samsung’s fourth-generation 7-inch tablet and will feature some modest upgrades from the current Tab 2 7.0, which was launched in April 2012 at $249.
Although full specs weren’t revealed, the new model will feature a thinner bezel than its predecessor; 1.2GHz dualcore processor compared with the current model’s 1GHz dual-core processor; Android 4.1 vs. Android 4.0; and 3-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera, compared with the predecessor’s 3.2-megapixel and VGA cameras.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
