Description

The 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 comes with a 1280 by 800 pixel TFT display, 1GB of RAM, 3MP main camera, 1.3MP front-facing snapper, and either 16 or 32GB of on-board storage that can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. Android 4.2 is pre-loaded, with the usual UI modifications in the form of Samsung's TouchWiz interface. But most importantly, Samsung has chosen to equip the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 model with a dual-core Intel processor running at 1.6GHz. This makes the device one of the first Intel-based Android tablets by Samsung, the 8-inch Tab 3 variant being the second of this kind. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 also stands out with being very portable, with a thickness of under 8 millimeters and tipping the scales at 510 grams. Versions with 3G/4G cellular connectivity will be available as well.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 149 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
