It's been just a over month since Samsung unveiled the high-end Galaxy TabPro tablets at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2014, now a report has emerged that the South Korean firm is planning the cheaper Galaxy Tab 4 series slates.
Technology community blog, MySamsungphones have got hold of the alleged Galaxy Tab 4 variants' specification list. It says tablets would come in three sizes, 7.0-inch, 8.0-inch and a big 10.1-inch model.
Up first, smallest among the three devices, Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 codenamed 'Degas' is said to sport a low-resolution WXGA (1280x800p) TFT LCD screen and run on the latest Android v4.4 KitKat powered by 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 64). It is also expected to flaunt a 3.0-megapixel main camera and 1.3-megapixel front camera.
On the other hand, the 8.0-inch (aka Millet) and 10.1-inch (aka Matisse) pack pretty much the same display resolutions, CPU, RAM, storage and connectivity features seen on the smaller model sans the size, camera and battery specifications.
With MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014 just a few days away, tech blog PhoneArena is betting that Samsung might use the event as the launch pad for the Galaxy Tab 4 series tablets. But nothing is set on stone to confirm that these would really get unveiled so soon, considering Galaxy TabPro tablets which made their debut only a month ago, is yet to get released in major global markets.
