We knew this was coming. It is almost a year since Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 3 lineup so it made perfect sense that we saw @evleaks state the obvious complete with press renders: that the Galaxy Tab 4 line of tablets was on the way. The Galaxy Tab 4 lineup is now official and just like last year’s, comes in 7, 8 and 10.1 inch flavours.
The spec sheet of the 3 variants of the tablets is largely the same with each packing a 1280 x 800 pixels display, 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The 7 inch variant will also have an 8 GB version available. The tablets have a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and pack a 3 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front. They’ll run on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat firmware with Samsung’s custom UI and add-ons like Multi Window, Group Play, WatchON and a slew of other apps that Samsung thinks will be of benefit to buyers of the tablets which will go on sale later in Q2 in white and black colour options. Wi-Fi only, 3G+Wi-Fi and LTE variants will be available.
The only difference as expected is the battery capacities with the 10.1 inch and 8.0 variants packing 6,800mAh and 4,450mAh batteies respectively. Samsung is mum on the battery capacity of the 7 inch Galaxy Tab 4.
