Samsung has officially announced its new line of mid-range tablets, which will include three different versions of the Galaxy Tab 4: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, the Tab 4 10.1 and the Tab 4 7.0.
All three tablets run on Android 4.4 KitKat and are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. They come with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, but there’s also an 8GB version of the 7in model. You can also expand the storage with a microSD card (up to 64GB if you get the Wi-Fi/3G/LTE versions of the tablets and up to 32GB if you buy a Wi-Fi/3G one). All Tab 4 tablets feature a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter.
As for the display, the Tab 4 8.0 sports an 8in screen, the Tab 10.1 a 10.1in one and the Tab 7.0 is the smallest of the trio, with a 7in screen. They all have the same WXGA resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which means that the smallest tablet has the best pixel density (215ppi), the 8in one a pixel density of 188ppi and the 10in tablet 149ppi.
The 10.1in Tab 4 has a larger 6,800mAh battery, whereas the 8.0 has a 4,450mAh one (nothing’s specified for the 7in model). The 10.1in tablet measures 243.4 x 176.4 x 7.95mm and weighs 487g, the 8.0in one 124.0 x 210.0 x 7.95mm and 320g, and the 7in Tab 4 107.9 x 186.9 x 9 mm and 276g.
The tablets have a Multi Window functionality, which means that their users can switch between apps and windows, as well as drag and drop any content easily. The Tab 4 models are slim and light and offer a portable design, ideal for taking them with you wherever you go. They come with a couple of fun and interesting features, such as Group Play, Samsung Link and WatchON.
You’ll be able to purchase these tablets in either black or white in the second quarter of 2014. The pricing info is yet to be announced. For more details, check out Samsung’s official page.
