Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, 8.0

Samsung introduced us to its Galaxy Tab 4 family earlier this month, debuting new 7, 8 and 10.1-inch tablets. Now Samsung has revealed exactly when U.S. consumers will be able to buy its newest Android-powered slates.

The Galaxy Tab 4 tablets will be available for pre-order tomorrow, April 24, with a full-on launch scheduled for May 1. Pricing will be set at $199.99 for the 7-inch model, $269.99 for the 8 incher and $349.99 for the big daddy 10.1-inch variant. Here’s what you can expect in exchange for your hard-earned cash:

Galaxy Tab 4 7.0

  • 7-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 3-megapixel rear, 1.3-megapixel front cameras
  • 8GB/16GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Optional LTE connectivity

Galaxy Tab 4 8.0

  • 8-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor

The Galaxy Tab 4 family may not be quite as high-end as Samsung’s recently-released Galaxy TabPRO hardware, but these new Tab 4 models are quite a bit cheaper than their TabPRO siblings. So if you’re in the hunt for a respectable Android slate that’ll be easy on your wallet, you may want to get your credit card out tomorrow morning and order yourself a shiny new Galaxy Tab 4.

UPDATE: T-Mobile has announced that it will sell an LTE-enabled version of the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 this summer. Precise launch and pricing information will be shared later on.
