Samsung Galaxy Tab4 Series is a Modest Upgrade in Three Sizes

By Gerald Lynch on at

It may be "one louder" than Samsung's Galaxy Tab3 range in the sequential numbering stakes, but the newly revealed Tab4 line-up (previously leaked by the company itself) remains only a minor upgrade to the mid-range gang.

Again coming in seven, eight and 10.1-inch sizes, screen resolution sidesteps rather than massively improves, going from 1270 x 800 on the Tab3 to 1,366 x 768 on the Tab4. 1.2GHz quad-core processors replace dual-core equivalents, and RAM goes from 1GB up to 1.5GB. 8GB and 16GB storage space options will be available (with microSD card support), with Android KitKat the operating system. A 3MP camera sits on the rear and a 1.3MP one up front. Perhaps the main change then is in the casing -- replacing glossier black plastics for a matte finish instead.

Shipping sometime between May and June, Samsung has yet to reveal specifics on the pricing. Not far off the Tab3 range in terms of specs, expect pricing to start at around the £200 mark then.
