The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, already confirmed to come in Wi-Fi and 3G versions, will apparently get a 4G LTE-enabled model too. Unfortunately, the release date and pricing details are still kept under wraps.
Unveiled about a month ago, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is expected to go up for sale in select European and Asian countries in a matter of weeks in Wi-Fi and 3G flavors.
Subsequently, it seems a 4G LTE-enabled model will come in a handful of markets too, though a release date or exact price point for this particular version are still up in the air.
What’s near certain is the LTE GTab 3 7.0 is real, seeing as the thing has been Bluetooth certified a while ago under the SM-T2105 model number. The Wi-Fi only model is also known as SM-T2110, while the 3G variant goes by the official name of SM-T2100.
As you can imagine, there will be no noticeable design, hardware or software differences between the LTE Tab 3 7.0 and its cousins besides the connectivity aspect. That means the 4G-enabled slate will come with the same fairly modest 1,024 x 600 pixels resolution panel, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM.
There will be Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out the box for the LTE 7-incher, but rumor has it a 4.2 upgrade is in store for the near future. Other features should include microSD support, dual 3 MP/1.3 MP cameras and a 4,000 mAh battery, while the storage options are likely to be 8 and 16 GB.
On the pricing front, assuming the Wi-Fi Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will be offered for $200, we should probably expect the LTE version to start at around 250 bucks. Not exactly a small fortune, but with the Nexus 7 currently worth just $200 with 16 GB of memory (no LTE though), one has to wonder – is Sammy’s slate worth it? What do you nice folks think?
