Samsung has just announced that the Galaxy Tab 3 will be coming in two more variants. While we have already seen the 7-inch version, the company said that two new 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions will be coming to markets around the globe in the beginning of June.

The specifications of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 are in sync with previous rumours. The tablet is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor alongside 1.5GB of RAM. It also comes loaded with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera. The device has a 8-inch WXGA TFT display with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. Available in 32GB and 64GB variants, the tablet also offers expandable storage up to 64GB via a microSD card. All these specifications are backed by a 4,450mAh battery.

After the device was recently spotted at the company’s Kazakhstan website, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 also has officially been announced. Like the smaller variant, the big brother of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 series- the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 also happens to have features similar to what leaks had indicated earlier. The tablet has a 10.1-inch WXGA TFT display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The difference between the displays of both the devices is noted with the 189ppi display on the 8-inch tablet against 149ppi on the 10.1-inch device. Powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, the device will be available in 16GB and 32GB versions. Adding to the already existing memory space, the tablet also offers the option of memory expansion up to 64GB through an external microSD card slot. When compared to Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, the rear camera on this device is less powerful with a 3-megapixel shooter. This tablet has a 6,800mAh battery capacity.

Both the devices run on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and will come in Wi-Fi only, 3G and LTE variants. They also come pre-loaded with Samsung applications and services such as Samsung Hub, ChatOn, S Translator, S Travel, Pop up Video and WatchON.

There is no word on the pricing of the two tablets as of now.
