Samsung has added two new Android tablets to its Galaxy Tab 3 range, introducing new 8-inch and 10.1-inch models to complement its existing 7-inch device. The 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 features a 1.5 GHz Exynos dual-core processor, WXGA TFT 1280 x 800 (189 PPI) display, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear-facing and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 4,450 mAh battery, and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

It's the first Samsung Android tablet to feature an Intel processor

Samsung confirmed to The Verge that the 10.1-inch model features an Intel 1.6 GHz dual-core processor, noting it has "sourced components, including chipsets, from trusted partners" to maintain a "consistent high-quality experience for customers." It also features a 1280 x 800 (149 PPI) WXGA TFT display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, and a 6,800 mAh battery. However, the 10.1-inch tablet only features a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, but does include the same 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera as the 8-inch Tab.

Both variants run Android 4.2.2 and include Samsung's latest suite of TouchWiz apps. Samsung says both devices will be available globally at beginning of June, but has yet to announce pricing.
