Adding to an already sprawling lineup of tablets, Samsung has just announced three variants of their upcoming Galaxy Tab 3, the third annual lineup of Android-powered tablets. There are a lot of different configuration options this time around, and a new 8″ model that may actually compete with the Galaxy Note 8.0. The rest of the Galaxy Tab 3 lineup includes the familiar 10.1″ and 7″ screen sizes in the familiar frame.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has a dual core 1.2GHz processor with a 1024×600 screen, putting it below the Nexus 7 in terms of PPI and resolution. The 8″ variant includes a 1.5GHz dual core processor with a 1280×800 screen resolution, equaling that of the Galaxy Note 8.0. The 10.1″ version actually has the same 1280×800 resolution on the larger screen, but internally it houses an Intel Z2560 dual core processor clocked at 1.6GHz. This may actually be Intel’s first real attempt into the Android mobile market of devices.
The new Galaxy Tab 3 lineup will be available starting on July 7th, 2013 in both White and Brown.
