Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

New year, new tablet! Samsung has unveiled its latest gadget: Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0. While many of its features match the existing Tab 3 in the market, others have been unfortunately removed. All in all, the South Korean tech giant is promoting its Galaxyโ€™s new Lite edition for its slimmer, more portable design. Is that the most important characteristic of a hi-end tablet? Only the users will decide that.

The new 7-inch Samsung tablet will be launched on July 7 for only $199. Preorders start a couple weeks earlier, on June 25. Based only on its features and pricing, there is not much about 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 that amazes fans and gadget geeks. Concerning the cost, $199 is an acceptable rate for a new 7-inch tablet nowadays; however, the Galaxyโ€™s new Lite edition fails to match basic key features of 7-inch tablets from 2013.

Not so promising

Samsungโ€™s latest gadget gives the user an insignificant 8 GB storage space and a tablet screen with a poor quality resolution of only 1,024x600-pixels, which is a few hundred thousand pixels behind the Kindle Fire HD, which starts at 16 GB of storage for the same $199 price, and the Nexus 7.

The new Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 will ship with 1GB of RAM and a Marvell PXA 986 1.2GHz CPU. It will run Android 4.2 OS and will be equipped with a 1.3 front camera and a rudimental 3 megapixel rear camera. ย The Galaxyโ€™s new Lite edition will be distributed in a Wi-Fi only version in the United Statesโ€”yes, American phablet fans, this is not for youโ€”featuring a 3G and 2G connectivity, as well as a 3,600mAH battery which runs up to eight hours of video playback on a single charge.

The bright side

Luckily, Samsung has packed its new Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 with sufficient interesting features, which include a 64 GB-compatible microSD card slot and an IR blaster which can be used to control a television and other entertainment-centric devices at home like DVDs and Blue-rays. Furthermore, the 7-inch Samsung tablet also makes use of Samsungโ€™s streaming video aggregator, Watch On, first seen on the Note 8. The device will debut in white and black versions.
