Samsung has just lifted the lid on the Samsung Galaxy Tab E (SM-T560) in Taiwan, which is a new affordable a Android-powered tablet.
According to Samsung Taiwan, the Galaxy Tab E is 8.5 mm-thin and weighs in at 490 g. It comes with a 9.6-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.3 GHz (possibly a Spreadtrum SC7730SE, but Samsung is yet to confirm this), 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 5,000 mAh battery, allowing the tablet to offer more usage time than most tablets. Unfortunately, it runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) and not Android 5.0 (Lollipop). It comes with Microsoft Office apps pre-installed.
Samsung will be releasing the Wi-Fi-only version of the Galaxy Tab E in Taiwan towards the end of the month for the equivalent of £141. Samsung is also expected to launch a version of the tablet that supports 3G connectivity (SM-T561).
It is yet to be determined if Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy Tab E in other markets. We’re guessing it will.
