Samsung is set to debut a new lineup of Galaxy Tablets, appropriately dubbed Galaxy Tab 4. The trio (yeah, three variants) of devices are likely to crest into the world at MWC this year. With little news of what’s coming from Samsung in regard to tablets, we now have some spec speculation, which is always fun.

Three variants — that might throw you off in a normal situation, but from Samsung? Not really. The Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 (that’s just one of the three) is said to be offered in a WiFi, 3G, and LTE version. All three (or eight, really) are set to be offered in black and white, which likely means Samsung will keep their plastic build. Considering the rest of the spec sheet aside from connectivity options, that’s probably a smart bet. A top-end tablet the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 may not be.

The 8-inch LCD screen may have an underwhelming 1280 x 800 resolution, and quad-core 1.2 GHZ processor, likely Exynos. There will be 1GB RAM, save for the LTE version which has 1.5GB. The usual 16 GB Memory is there, and is expandable via microSD Card. A rear 3MP camera opposes a 1.3MP shooter around front, and a 6800mAh battery keeps it going.


Aside from the 8-inch variety, there are also 7-inch and 10-inch Tab 4 tablets. The 7-inch device will keep the same resolution as the 8-incher, but come in WiFi and 3G variants — no LTE. It will also have the same processor, RAM, but cut the onboard memory down to 8GB. The same camera set-up is around, as is the microSD card slot. A smaller 4450mAh battery keeps this one going.

The 10.1-inch Tab 4 will allegedly have the three variants offered on the 8-inch, so your desire for connectivity will be met. It also keeps almost every spec from the other two, save for a standard 1.5GB RAM on board, and different cameras. The bigger Tab 4 will house an 8MP/3MP camera ensemble, and be powered by a 6800mAh battery, just like the 8-inch tablet. All three will come with Android 4.4.

If true, this leaves us with three decidedly middle of the road tablets from Samsung, and a rather confused lineup. We have the PRO series announced at CES, and now up to eight different Tab 4 devices are on offer. Round that out with massive smartphones like the Note 3 (replete with all its variants!), and we’ve got a lot of devices. Too many? You tell us.

      Do what I did. I removed Android Authority from my Facebook feed and unliked. honest mistakes happen but I did all this two hours after the Facebook crowd pointed out the error, so I just reported the post to facebook as the spam it was.

    The galaxy note 4 is a phone. The galaxy tab 4 is a tablet. Your staff should know the difference and might want to look at this articles content compared to the title.

  • The only thing confusing about the lineup you mentioned is that there is no mention of the Note 4! Everyone else can easily figure out the Tab 1/2/3/4 lineup by now….

  • Nathan Bryant

    You really should have just said Tab. Saying Note has everyone think of the phone, and they already shown off their tablets at CES last month…

  • Charles Sweeney

    Let the clicking begin! Damn you got me with the title too!

  • Peter N

    Misleading title and click baiting…you got me this time but not again!

  • Uncle Ruckus

    What a better way to get clicks to an article that otherwise would have gotten little views than with a misleading title.

  • Greg

    You might attract attention with that bait and switch title but you stupid asses won’t keep regular visitors to your site being dishonest and just plain freaking stupid

  • Christopher Robert

    Not cool…Not cool at all…. The title is in poor taste…

  • As pointed out, the title should have said Tab, not Note. An unfortunate error, and certainly not done with bait and switch intent.

  • oilfighter

    CTL + F “Note”, only found 1 reference to a Note 3!?!?

  • Personally, I think Touch Wiz has turned into what Moto Blur used to be. Hated by everyone. I won’t ever buy another Samsung device until they bring it back to a more vanilla android.
