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 dual-core 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.

It will be offered with 8GB or 16GB of embedded memory and a 64MB MicroSD card slot, whereas its U.S. predecessor featured 8GB of embedded memory and 32GB MicroSD card slot.
