Samsung Galaxy Tab4 range
Samsung has overnight announced their fourth generation Galaxy Tab series of tablets – the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 and the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1. The tablets have been expected ever since their appearance on the Gear Fit microsite as compatible with the fitness band.

Before you start getting excited for high-end devices, it is bests to remember that the Galaxy Tab range are what’s considered their ‘budget’ range. But there’s some decent specs here: All three screen sizes on offer come in WXGA (1280×800) resolution, there’s microSD card expansion slots on all the tablets offering a way to increase the on-board storage and it appears that there will be 3G/LTE options for all three models, although which models make it to Australia is another question.

The Galaxy Tab 4 series will launch with Samsung’s UX over the top of Android 4.4(KitKat) and will include Multi-Window multi-tasking options. There’s also the usual features : GroupPlay, WatchON and Samsung Link for adding to your multi-media experience.

The Galaxy Tab 4 will come in Black and White with a ‘textured, premium look and feel back cover’. Samsung has not announced pricing but has advised that the Galaxy Tab 4 will launch ‘globally beginning in 2Q, 2014’.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.

    I never understood the reason for these devices. Are they meant to be mid range? The resolution on them is always way to low. At least they’re above 720p this time.

    Mid range is exactly what these are supposed to be.
    The Note line was the high-end.
    But how you’d class these now, with the release of the Pro lines, the Tablet line looks more to be the low end budget range, rather than mid range.
