The latest model of the tablet offering of the South Korean device manufacturer was finally unveiled, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.

The seven-inch tablet has similar specs as the current model of the tablet although its processor has been boosted from the 1.0GHz for the Galaxy Tab 2 to a dual-core 1.2GHz processor for the upcoming model of the tablet. The upcoming model is also available in an 8GB or 16GB variant and offers a bigger external storage capability with 64GB through a microSD memory card slot.

Although the 1024 by 600 display of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is not quite impressive, t is capable of supporting full HD 1080p video playback. In comparison, the resolution of the Google Nexus 7 is at 1280 by 800.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is also shorter compared to the current model at 7.4 inches compared to the 7.63-inch length of the Galaxy Tab 2.  It is also lighter, thinner, and narrower compared to the current model of the tablet.

The release of the seven-inch tablet will allow the company to compete directly with other similarly-sized tablets in the market from Google, Apple, and Amazon.

The upcoming model of the tablet offering from Samsung will also offer a three-megapixel rear-facing camera coupled with a 1.3MP camera in front. The 3G model of the device will reportedly allow users to make calls due to the extra speaker and the proximity sensor found on this particular model of the device.

However, Samsung has not confirmed this capability for the moment although it will definitely become the biggest phablet that will be offered in the market if it is accurate.

For the moment, the price tag for the device is not yet certain although it may be possible for it to be comparable to the $200 price tag of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7, which have better features compared to the upcoming device.

The Wi-Fi variant will become available in the market by May. The 3G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is anticipated to enter the market by June.
