Samsung has introduced a new voice-calling tablet, the Galaxy TabQ, for the Chinese market.
The new 7-inch tablet is now listed on the company’s official site in China without pricing and availability details.
The new Samsung Galaxy TabQ tablet will reportedly be available in China on two carriers – China Mobile (SM-T2558) and China Unicom (SM-T2556). Sammy Hub reports that the tablet as of now is limited to China, but can be expected to go on sale in more markets soon.
The Galaxy TabQ supports voice calling, the highlight feature of the tablet, and also supports LTE network connectivity. It features a 7-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) TFT display and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box. The tablet, much like the Galaxy Note 3 (Review | Pictures), sports a faux leather finish back.
It is powered by a quad-core processor (unspecified chipset) clocked at 1.2GHz. There is no word of the RAM and inbuilt storage on the tablet. The Galaxy TabQ sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and there is a 2-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard.
The Galaxy TabQ supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 64GB). It weighs 250 grams and supports a single SIM (Micro-SIM). The tablet measures 191.8×99.7×8.9mm and is backed by a 3200mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy TabQ, apart from 4G LTE, comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, Micro-USB, and 3G connectivity options.
Notably, the latest Samsung Galaxy TabQ tablet comes with some similar specifications to the Galaxy W tablet exclusively launched for Korean markets in June.
Last week, the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7.0 tablet reached Indian shores and was listed on the company’s India e-store at Rs. 18,099.
Other Galaxy Tab4 tablets, the Galaxy Tab4 8.0 3G and Galaxy Tab4 10.1 3G, went on sale officiallyin mid-June, and are also via the company’s India e-store.
