Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is here, officially

Admittedly, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite didn’t make a gracious entrance. A couple of days ago, it shot into an online store in Poland without waiting for official introductions to be made. Well, here it is now – Samsung has finally taken the wraps off this new tablet which falls splat in the mid-range segment.

The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite has a 7-inch, 1024 x 600p touchscreen and embeds a 1.2GHz dual core processor. It’s got 1GB of RAM and unfortunately, only runs on Jelly Bean 4.2, which seems rather lazy of Samsung. There’s 8GB of onboard memory as well as a slot for slipping in a microSD card of up to 32GB capacity.

You can apparently squeeze up to 8 hours of video playback out of the 3600mAh battery hidden inside the device. The rear panel plays host to a 2MP camera dressed with the usual fireworks such as Shoot & Share, Smile Shot and Panorama Shot.
