Samsung Galaxy Tab E 7.0 and Tab E Lite coming soon?

Samsung is reportedly getting ready to introduce new members of its Galaxy Tab E family, including a 7-inch model. Last year, the company released two Galaxy Tab E slates: one with a 9.6-inch display (sold by Verizon), and one with an 8-inch display (available from US Cellular). This year, according to information revealed on Twitter, we could see a Galaxy Tab E 7.0, a Galaxy Tab E Lite, and a Galaxy Tab E Kids.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 7.0 should have two versions: a Wi-Fi only one (model number SM-T280), and a 4G LTE one (model number SM-T285). Both are expected to offer 7-inch displays with 800 x 1280 pixels, quad-core 1.3 GHz processors, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory. Obviously, these will be affordable tablets, just like the Tab E models released last year. Hopefully, the two devices will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

There's no word on exactly what the Galaxy Tab E Lite and Galaxy Tab E Kids will bring. However, they will likely have similar features, with the Kids variant probably coming with a protective cover, plus pre-loaded software for children (similar to the Galaxy Tab 3 Kids from 2013).

Looks ok, tablet market pretty stale though... Kids version makes good sense.

More cheap Samsung junk, you mean. Well, it's been a mere few months since they put out some cheap, low res, underpowered tablets, it's time for some new ones.

I'll be somewhat intrigued when the tab s3 comes out, but apart from that, I find mobile android tablets poorly made. It's a nuisance really, you can either buy expensive Apple or Windows tablets, or cheap android junk. There hasn't been any android tablets that have caught my eye. Heck, the Tab S2 was beaten by a year old tablet for the best for 2015. Cant wait to see the surface pro 5 or the late iPad Air 3, I wouldn't mind seeing an iPad pro update either.

If you're looking for a tablet, you are better of buying budget Asus tablets. Or else buy an iPad or even a Surface tablets, if that's what you want. Software support for Samsung Tabs are the worst. They release with all the bells and whistles and goodies, and give up support thereafter. From a Tab S user.

I like a Android tablet for movie watching on my lunch break. Samsung need to make a true successor to the Tab S 8.4

I do own this tablet and you get what you get for the price you pay. Design really looks similar to the tab s2, screen is pretty decent, with just normal and not heavy games it runs ok without lag.
