Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 prices leaked online


Prices for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 range have been leaked online ahead of the Samsung Premiere 2013 event tomorrow.

The new tablets look like costing around £200 for the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch model and in the region of £300 for the 8-inch model.

The 10-inch model is expected to set you back around £380. The prices have only been released in Euros so far, as spotted by CNET, so give or take a few pounds either side.

Samsung recently expanded its Galaxy Tab 3 range of tablets with the introduction of the 8in and 10.1in models, which join the already announced 7in Galaxy Tab 3 tablet.

The new Tab 3 models don't have an official release date as yet for the UK but are set to be available in 4G LTE, 3G and wi-fi versions.
