Like the Galaxy Tab 2, it can also be used as a phone, which puts it in the category popularly known as phablets.
The Galaxy Tab 3 runs just like its predecessor Android 4.1 and has the same 4,000 mAh battery. The dual-core processor is the same with a clock frequency of 1.2 gigahertz.
By using a smaller frame around the display, Samsung has managed to shrink the size of the new tablet even though the display size is the same as the Galaxy Tab 2. The resolution is the same at 1024 x 600 pixels.
The Galaxy Tab 3 will be available in models with eight or 16 gigabytes of storage space. The Galaxy Tab 2 is only offered with eight gigabytes of storage space. However, both models can be expanded to 64 gigabytes with a memory card.
The camera on the back has a resolution of three megapixels, while the camera on the front has a resolution of 1.3 megapixels.
Samsung hasn’t announced a price for the Galaxy Tab 3, but says the Wi-Fi model will be released globally in May, and the 3G model in late June.
