In addition to the Galaxy Tab 3 with a 7-inch display, South Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab 3 tablets with 8 inch, 10.1 inch screen.

Both the tablets run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and and the latest TouchWiz applications from Samsung. They will be available in both 32GB and 64GB internal storage vartiants, with the option to expand storage via microSD, and come in Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G versions starting later this month. Samsung will reportedly use Intel’s Clover Trail+ mobile chip for its Galaxy Tab 3 10.1.

The 8-inch tablet will pack 1.5GHz dual-core processor with WXGA TFT display, 1280X800 pixels. It will support 1.5GB RAM and have a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing camera.

The 8-inch model has a TFT display sporting a 1,280 x 800 (WXGA) resolution (189 ppi), a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. It’s got vaguely respectable internals: a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (no word on the manufacturer), 1.5GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB storage configurations. A microSD slot is present, supporting up to 64GB cards, and a 4,450mAh battery provides the necessary juice. Android 4.2 is OS of choice — no surprise there — and when it arrives, you’ll have the choice of WiFi-only (dual-band, a/b/g/n), 3G (HSPA+) and LTE variants.

The 10.1-inch version stretches that same WXGA resolution across its display (149 ppi), and carries a smaller 3-megapixel rear camera and the same 1.3-megapixel front-facer. According to Reuters, the 1.6GHz dual-core CPU in this larger slate is provided by Intel, 1GB RAM, and 16 or 32GB storage configurations. A microSD slot is present, supporting up to 64GB cards. The 10.1-inch Tab 3 packs a 6,800mAh battery, and comes in WiFi-only, 3G and LTE variants.

There is no official confirmation on the price of the tablets. The company said that the tablets will be available across all the countries in the beginning of June.
