A couple days ago a new tablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab E, was spotted in a sales catalog for Taiwan Mobile. New details about the device have emerged, revealing that both Wi-Fi and 3G wireless models will be hitting the market. As you may have guessed from the full device name, Galaxy Tab E 9.6, the device will come with a 9.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800.
Powering the new Galaxy Tab E 9.6 model will be a Spreadtrum processor running at 1.3 GHz, 1.5 GB of memory, and a mere 8 GB of storage. The device will support expanded memory of up to 128 GB via microSD cards. For cameras, the device gets a 5MP rear shooter and a 2MP front shooter. Unfortunately, signs point to Samsung only equipping this tablet with Android KitKat instead of Lollipop. The good news is that Samsung appears to be planning to release both Wi-Fi only and 3G compatible models of the device.
The presence of 3G without 4G support suggests Samsung may is likely targeting this device for sale in developing markets. Even in the initially planned Asian and Eastern European markets, the device will likely be considered a bargain tablet with prices ranging from €180 ($204 USD) to €200 ($226 USD). We do not yet know when Samsung may officially announce this product or whether there may be some changes to the final, official specs.
