Samsung’s latest Android tablet is one of the first I’ve heard of to feature a 9.6 inch display. But that’s just about the only truly interesting thing about this budget tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is launching in Taiwan this month for about $225 and it features generally mediocre specs. There’s no word on if or when the tablet will be available in other countries.
Samsung’s new 9.6 inch tablet features a 1280 x 800 pixel TFT LCD display, a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.
It has a 5,000 mAh battery, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS, but no cellular capabilities. There’s a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera, and the Galaxy Tab E has a microSD card slot for removable storage.
Samsung will ship the tablet with Android 4.4 KitKat, which is starting to look a bit dated.
The tablet measures 9.5″ x 5.9″ x 0.33″ and weighs 1.1 pounds.
