Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
Successor to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet comes in wi-fi and 3G versions, with 8GB or 16GB capacity upgradeable to 64GB via microSD

Samsung has unveiled its latest tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3, ahead of its release in May. The 7in slate includes a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and a 1024x600 screen, delivering 169ppi.

The successor to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, the Galaxy Tab 3 is available in in 8GB and 16GB versions, with a microSD slot allowing for expandable storage up to 64GB. You also get a 3MP camera around the back and a 1.3MP front-facing one for video calls.

Weighing in at 302g for the wi-fi-only version and 306g for the 3G-equipped model, the Galaxy Tab 3's a little lighter than the 340g Google Nexus 7 – but Samsung's 169ppi screen doesn't compare to the Nexus 7's 216ppi display.

The wi-fi-only Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 will hit store shelves in May, while its 3G counterpart will arrive in June – though pricing has yet to be revealed.

UPDATE: Samsung has since added 8in and 10.1in models of the Galaxy Tab 3.
