Samsung’s budget-friendly Galaxy Tab E slate was first offered by Verizon in the U.S. Now, T-Mobile has announced that it will start selling the device on June 22.
Speaking of price, the new Android 6.0 marshmallow powered Tab E will reportedly set the buyers back by $240 without a contract. The other way is to purchase the tablet for $0 down followed by monthly payments of $10 for 24 months under any T-Mobile plan.
As for specifications, the Galaxy Tab E features an 8-inch TFT display, complemented by 1,280 x 800 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, a quad core (Samsung Exynos) processor, running at 1.3 GHz, powers the slate.
Although there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 version available in the market, CNet says the one heading to T-Mobile will be powered by an Exynos processor. The hardware configurations are backed by 1.5GB of RAM.
On the software front, as mentioned earlier, Marshmallow runs the device. When it comes to camera configuration, Samsung has housed a 5-megapixel primary snapper with LED flash, in addition to a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Samsung offers the Galaxy Tab E in Pearl White and Metallic Black colors. A big non-removable 5,000 mAh battery cell backs the entire device. GSM Arena says this battery will be able to offer up to 117 hours of music play and 13 hours of talk time. In addition to the 16GB native storage space, a microSD card can be used to expand the memory up to 256GB.
Apart from the Galaxy Tab E, Samsung is apparently working on a new tablet dubbed Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 (2016), SamMobile noted. This device recently received radio certification in South Korea and it is believed to be the successor of the 2014 version with the same name and display size.
