As the name suggests, the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 would come in with a 10 inch screen, so far known to carry a resolution of 12800*800, which is not so very impressive, and it is not meant to be, since Samsung has it’s higher end PRO line of tablets for that now. Other specifications include a a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, alongside a 3MP/1.2MP shooter combo, and Android 4.4 KitKat on-board.
With the lower end specifications that this tablet has we really will have to wait to find out how competitive the pricing would be. Maybe till April 24(thats what the render suggests).
After Samsung upgraded the Tab line with the Pro line of high performance tablets, it’s around time the Tab series start seeing their share of rumors so as to what the new line may have. Turns out form the leaks, a lot of it is all about sharing looks with the S5.
So now the TabPRO series is the high end line while for other Samsung fans, the Tab series is seen as an affordable series. The first thing we notice about this design is how those side bezels are substantially reduced compared to last year’s Tab 3, also the corners are more squared, a design language we’ve seen with recent Samsung products like the S5.
That pretty much is all we can say about it being different from the Tab 3. The usual home and capacitive buttons are still present.
No one can disagree to the fact that Google makes the most affordable Tablets and Smartphones when it comes to their Nexus series which is meant to deliver the best Android experience.
But more often when one does purchase a tablet or phone, people expect to protect their devices since not every one is planning to upgrade each year. That explains the existence of cases and protection films, Google’s prices are on the steep side of things, and the designs haven’t always won us over. Folks at Android Central reported that thier unit of the Nexus 7, which was picked up last year with the folio case, in turn damages the unit over time.
The red folio case had deposited orangish marks that were more than just a breeze to remove. Sure it’s just a case but for one that costs $50, this is far from expected. Why would anyone allow their accessories damage their precious devices, specially when Amzer has some awesome picks at crazy prices!
Rumors of a future possible Nexus 8 has been in the air since quite a while since the Nexus line of tablets is pretty much depending on only one update strong contender at this moment – the Nexus 7 2013 edition.
“The expectation is [that] this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications”, claims the report, which also mentions “high-performance” specifications. With the Nexus tag, does come the non premium price tag and quoted in the report is a tag of more than $299.
The report says that HTC may be the manufacturer for this, but let’s keep this in the rumors category for now.
The Nexus series, specially the Nexus 7 has been a benchmark tablet to lead the industry in terms of best specs at rock bottom prices. There were rumours of an 8 inch version of the Nexus slate and here is some update on the same.
According to a report “sources from the upstream supply chain”, Google might turn its attention to the eight-inch tablet market, with plans for a Nexus 8 by mid-2014. The same report says that Asus would be the manufacturer and Intel’s Bay Trial-T would be the preferred power plant.
Would you like an 8 inch Nexus?
Samsung cannot let a device release without releasing a variant of it as we know and so is the case with Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. There are no surprises in the specs department as it aimed at the entry level market.
The device packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz of an unspecified brand and comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Like on most Samsung devices, you get a microSD card slot for storage extension with up to 32GB. The display is an LCD which has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, resulting in a density of just 169 ppi, which is supposedly an “optimal resolution designed to bring users a better viewing experience”.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will roll out globally soon in Black and White.
On the specs front, the Slate 6 features an IPS LCD display of 1,280 x 720 resolution, while the Slate 7 VoiceTab features a 1,280 x 800 display. The specs seem largely similar: a quad-core processor of an unspecified brand, 16GB of internal storage with an expansion slot, front-facing stereo speakers, five megapixels cameras on the rear, and two megapixels on the front. The devices will be running Android 4.2 with some modifications from HP.
We’ll wait for pricing and availability details.
Well rumours turned out to be true and Samsung did launch 4 new Galaxy Pro models with top of the line hardware. Not only that, these tablets come with Android Kitkat 4.4 with a new touchwiz UI with a card boasting interface and better multitasking than before.
Things here in the leak that came from @evleaks today look more like a phone UX, probably to be featured on the next flagship and yes the new font is a refreshing change but it undeniably looks more flat and iOS like ever. Is this how the Galaxy S5 could appear? Could be, we are just months far from knowing the reality. There is no way to confirm the authenticity of these shots as of now.
What we can conclude is that there are the following models lined up : Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 10.1 and Tab Pro 8.4. Launching price details aren’t available yet but we shall keep you posted on that. The Pro line comes with high-end specs all-throughout and all these tablets boast fast Exynos 5/Snapdragon 800 processors with WQXGA resolution (2560 x 1600).
Officially we do not know anything about this device, According to a new report from SamMobile, the Note Pro features a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Other specs include an 8MP main camera, 2.1MP front cam, an IR blaster, NFC, Wifi 802.11 ac, a 9500 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0+ LE and a 12.2-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600. Phew!
That is quite a premium feature filled tablet coming to us very soon, as Reports state.
