Samsung had given us a note that the new series of Galaxy tablets would not arrive until March. Well it seems as if the South Korean giant is right on time as Samsung has just announced that the new Galaxy Tabs are going to start shipping on March 9th. The 12 inch Android slate is going to start at $650 with 32GB of storage.
The tablet has a 2560x1600 screen which is that same as all the other tablets that are coming out. What you will get with the 12 inch version though is a larger capacity battery and more RAM. The RAM is set to go up to about 3GB as compared with the other devices that only have 2GB. All the tablets have the same faux leather look as the Galaxy Note 3 and other recent Samsung devices.
Other than these small differences, all the tablets share the same specs ranging from the OS (Android KitKat) to the cameras (8MP and 2MP in front). The whole range of devices is less than 8mm thick. In all honesty, the 10.1 inch model is almost exactly like the larger one except that it doesn’t have an S pen and has only 2GB of RAM. The 12 inch Galaxy Tab Pro then seems like a harder sell since it seems a little bit too big. The plus to choosing that one though remains that it comes with about $700 worth of built in software and services. Listed below are the services that come with the tablet
