Wi-Fi version of the seven-inch tablet will be available from early May, with the 3G model hitting shelves the following month 

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 3 in the coming weeks. The Wi-Fi version will go on sale at the beginning of next month with the 3G model to follow in June.

The Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It has a seven-inch touchscreen, three megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera and HD video playback capability.

It will also come with eight or 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded to 64GB with a microSD card. The device is thinner and lighter than the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) at 9.9 mm and 302g (Wi-Fi) and 306g (3G) respectively.

Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland vice president of IM division Simon Stanford said: “At Samsung we are constantly striving to provide innovative devices that fit people’s individual needs.  The new Galaxy Tab 3 certainly offers something for everyone, providing people of all ages with even more ways to view, listen, create and share content from any location at any time.”
