Leaked Specs Show Up For The 7, 8, And 10.1-Inch Variations Of The Galaxy Tab 4

February 11, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz


The Galaxy Tab 4 line is nearing release, and is poised to replace the current lineup of tablets that Samsung offers in the mid range tier, the Galaxy Tab 3 line. Yes, we’ll soon be saying goodbye to the Galaxy Tab 3 in all it’s forms, except for the Galaxy Tab 3 lite which just announced not too long ago. When these tablets disappear at least from Samsung’s production, the Galaxy Tab 4 will be ready to take over as the new blood in a group of moderately priced tablets aimed at the somewhat price conscious consumer. I say somewhat because they will still carry a slightly higher price tag than that of the Nexus 7 and other low cost tablets, but they won’t be nearly as high priced as the Galaxy Pro series devices that are coming out in the near future.  If you fancy Samsung’s products and have been waiting for something new in the Galaxy Tab line, we have some leaked specs for you to glaze over while you wait for the upcoming devices to hit store shelves and online retailers. It is important to remember that while these specs look good on paper and seem fitting for Samsung’s upcoming Tab 3 replacement, they’re unconfirmed leaks so they could very well be completely false.

Starting with the smallest of the group, the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will come with a 7 inch display carrying a resolution of 1,280×800. It packs a quad-core processor that is clocked at 1.2GHz, and a 4,450 mAh battery to keep the tablet juiced. You’ll have 8GB of internal storage space to work with out of box but should that not be quite enough you can get additional storage via the microSD slot. The processor pairs nicely with the 1GB of RAM, although this most likely won’t satisfy the power users who are looking for something that is more performance oriented. The other usual suspects are here, with Bluetooth 4.0, wifi, and gps capabilities. it also come running Android 4.4 Kit Kat and will have a 3MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera. There will be three separate variants of this Galaxy Tab 4 alone, giving customers the option of a wifi only, 3G, or LTE capable 7-inch tab 4. The 8-inch Tab 4 looks to come with the same screen resolution, just with an 8-inch size display instead of 7, and also comes with a quad-core processor that clocks in at 1.2GHz. Storage space is bumped up to 16GB which is more manageable. The same quality cameras as the 7-inch tab 4 will be present on the front and back of the 8-inch, along with same connectivity features(wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, and gps), and the same Connectivity options for data use with the wifi only, 3G, and LTE variants. There is a difference with the 8-inch LTE tab 4 though, which is the inclusion of 1.5GB of RAM instead of 1GB. Lastly, the battery is also bumped up to support the bigger screen, packing 6,800 mAh of juice.

When it comes to the 10.1-inch tab 4, literally all the features and specs are the same save for a few changes. The screen size is larger, but once again with the same resolution as the first two. Instead of a 3MP camera on the back and a 1.3MP camera on the front, it will sport an 8MP camera on the back and 2MP camera on the front, giving the photos and videos better quality. It also comes with 16GB of internal storage like the 8-inch Tab 4, and all the connectivity variants of the device have 1.5GB of RAM like the LTE model of the 8-inch tablet.  The specs aren’t mind blowing, but given the right price they could certainly do well to grab a huge chunk of the consumer base looking for a decent tablet without having to spend tons of money.
