Samsung has announced the low-cost variant of 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3. The date and time of arrival in stores has yet to be revealed.

Expanding the family of 7-inch tablets, Samsung has introduced a new 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, which had been rumored for a while as a low-profile version of Galaxy Tab 3.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite has a 7-inch WSVGA display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Inside the case of black or white, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of flash memory are placed. Unlike its elder brother, there’s a 2-megapixel rear camera while the front camera is absent.

The 7-inch tablet features a micro SD slot to expand the storage space up to 32 GB. In connectivity options, it includes support for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct aka Wi-Fi P2P, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, GPS and GLONASS. The only built-in sensor is the accelerometer, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean runs on board, with the TouchWiz interface.

Comparing tech specifications with the Galaxy Tab 3, it’s clear that it’s aimed to counter the mid budget tablets available in the market. In fact, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is only offered with 8 GB of internal memory, the Wi-Fi module isn’t dual band and lacks almost all of the sensors. In addition, it has a lower capacity battery (3,600 mAh versus 4,000 mAh), which provides up to eight hours during video playback, according to Samsung.
