Samsung on Tuesday finally unveiled the new Galaxy Tab E series slate in Taiwan.

Under the hood, it comes packed with Android OS backed by 1.3GHz Spreadtrum quad-core SoC (System on Chip), 1.5GB RAM and 8GB inbuilt memory with an option to expand up to 128GB via microSD card.
Other features include 5000 mAh battery, 5mp camera with HD video recording ability and a 2mp snapper on the front. As far as connectivity features are concerned, it supports Bluetooth v4.0, GPS/GLONASS and micro-USB port.
Galaxy Tab E SM-T560 is a Wi-Fi-only model, but if SamMobile is to believed, Samsung has plans to release SIM-variant SM-T561 in the coming days.
The company has reportedly confirmed that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab E will first hit stores in Taiwan later this month for 6,999 NTD (approximately $226/€201/₹14,535).
