Samsung announces Galaxy Tab3 Lite

Samsung has officially announced it will release a Galaxy Tab3 Lite.

The budget tablet had been leaked online earlier yesterday (January 16th), but Samsung decided to reveal the tablet officially via a press release later on that day.

Its 1.2 GHz dual-core processor means “users can enjoy a seamless multimedia experience when playing games, watching videos and loading web pages”, according to its manufacturer.

Available in white or black, the tablet comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and weighs 310g.

The device’s menu bar is situated on the bezel – rather than on the screen – to maximize the user’s wide screen experience.

Pricing for the gadget, have changed has not been released, but if the online leak is to be believed, the Wi-Fi version will be priced at $165 (£101), while the 3G version will go on sale for $263.

No official release date has been announced as of yet, but it will be “released globally”, according to its manufacturer.
