The Korean firm unveiled the tablet on Monday, confirming that it will be released in the US in May. There is currently no word on the tablet's price or if it will be released in the UK, and at the time of publishing Samsung had not responded to V3's request for comment.
The Tab 3 is one of many new miniature tablets to be unveiled by Samsung. Prior to this, the firm announced its 8in Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The tablet features a similar design to its Note sibling, boasting an all but identical curved polycarbonate chassis.
In terms of specs, the tablet will feature a 7in 1,024x600 screen, be powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and run using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean overlaid with Samsung's custom Touchwiz user interface.
The Tab 3 will also include a 3MP rear and a 1.3MP front camera, and will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery. The tablet will be available in Wi-Fi and 3G models. Both models will feature 8GB and 16GB internal storage models, both of which can be expanded to 64GB using the device's microSD card slot.
It is not currently known if the tablet will feature the Knox business support service seen on Samsung's top end Galaxy S4 smartphone. Knox is a security service designed to offer similar sandboxing services to BlackBerry Balance, letting the user create separate work and personal sections on the device.
The feature was originally intended to arrive on the Galaxy S4 smartphone on Saturday 27 April, however Samsung has since confirmed that the service will not be active on the first round of smartphones.
