After launching the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and the Galaxy Tab Pro series at CES 2014, Samsung recently took the wraps off its new 7-inch Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab3 Lite. The tablet is a low end Android device based on hardware specs, although Samsung is yet to reveal the Tab3 Lite’s official pricing.
Formally called the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7”), the tablet is a watered-down version of the Galaxy Tab 3, hence the “Lite” tag, although Samsung claims it has a “slimmer, more portable design”. The main specs of this tablet include a 1,024 x 600 resolution panel, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage (expandable via microSD slot), 3,600mAh battery and 2-megapixel camera.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7”) has a more compact bezel compared to the other tablets in the Tab 3 line, making it easier to hold in theory. Overall, though, the design looks too familiar and offers nothing fresh or exciting. But if priced very competitively, the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7”) will be a very good option for those looking for a budget 7-inch Android slate. Compared to those offered by local brands, Samsung’s budget tablet is a safer choice.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite (7”) will be available in WiFi-only and 3G versions and color options are limited to black and white. The tablet will run Android 4.2 out of the box.
