Samsung has announced the company's new Galaxy Tab A tablets in Russia today. The company has unveiled two new devices as part of that line, the 8-inch and 9.7-inch models. We're talking about mid-range, Snapdragon 410-powered devices here. Check out our announcement of those devices if you'd like to know more, we're here to talk about yet another Samsung tablet that launched today, the Galaxy Tab 3 V which was unveiled in Malaysia.
Much like the two Galaxy Tab A models, this is a budget tablet, but an even lower-end model than the two Tab A offerings. The Galaxy Tab 3 V sports a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card up to 32GB). This device is actually powered by Spreadtrum's quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz and it ships with a 3,600mAh battery on the inside. 2-megapixel camera is available on both the rear and front side of this device. The Galaxy Tab 3 V offers 3G connectivity, and it also comes with FM Radio. Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed on here with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of Google's operating system, of course.
"Consistent with Samsung's People-Inspired Innovation philosophy, the Samsung GALAXY Tab 3 V is designed with the first-time tablet user in mind. From its attractive price point to its intuitive navigation, this tablet offers users the full reassurance from our legacy of quality devices," said Lee Jui Siang, Vice President of Mobile, IT and Digital Imaging at Samsung Malaysia.
The Galaxy Tab 3 V is already available in Malaysia for RM499 ($135), you can get it at Samsung Experience Stores and through authorized retailers. The device is also available via telecom operator Maxis on a two-year contract with SurfMore50 plan for RM239 ($65). According to the source, the device is available in Black and White color options (pictured above this article). Samsung did not release any information regarding the availability of this tablet on other markets, but it will most certainly reach more markets in the near future, we'll report back when that happens.
