Description

The thin 8-incher is just 7.4mm with minimum bezel, and sports a display panel with 1280 x 800 resolution, clocking it at 189 ppi pixel density. The chipset is clocked at 1.5 GHz, aided by the unorthodox 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot for more. There are also a 5 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front-facing unit, while a 4450 mAh battery backs it all up. The Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch (yep, that's the original name) is running Android 4.2, and there will be a version with broadband 3G and LTE connectivity as well.
