After the success of Galaxy Tab 2, Samsung have got all the plans ready to launch the successor to Galaxy Tab 2, 7.0 as Galaxy Tab 3, 7.0. The tablet has been announced by the company in April and is expected to roll out in the market somewhere in June 2013.
Now its always a rule, when you launch something new or when you even upgrade and revamp an already successful device, you need to focus on the technical specifications rather just revamping its look to match the entire product line.
Samsung this time, we are not sure but might have overlooked the technical part completely. The new edition have got almost everything in similiar with the previous edition with minor changes here and there.
The Galaxy Tab 3.0 sports a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 7 inch 1,024 * 600 resolutions display, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and optional cellular connectivity. The prices are yet to be confirmed, perhaps you can expect it to fall somewhere near to Galaxy Tab 2's pricing.
The WiFi variant will be available from May 2013 and the 3G variant will follow in June 2013.
