Samsung Galaxy Tab 3

Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 3 now have a U.K. release date, according to a page on retailer Carphone Warehouse’s website.

According to the retailer, you will be able to purchase all three members of the Galaxy Tab 3 range starting with July. And while that’s good news if you were planning to upgrade your gadget portfolio with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, 8.0, or 10.1, no information on prices is specified on the page.

As you may remember, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has been officially announced at the end of April, followed, after quite a few rumors, by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1, which were confirmed by Samsung at the beginning of last week.

Retailer Adorama had the prices of the Tab 3 devices listed on its website a while ago. Of course, those are indicative at best, but they can still give you an idea on what to expect. The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 supposedly costs $199, while the 16GB Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 was said to cost $329.99. The 16GB Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 was listed at $379.99, but we’ll have exact prices soon enough.

If you need a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has a 1024 x 600 pixels display and is driven by a dual-core CPU running at 1.2 GHz, accompanied by 1GB of RAM memory. It has a 3MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front shooter, and up to 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD slot. The seven incher features a 4000 mAh battery and runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.
