Samsung has announced the introduction of the new GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″). Offering an expanded range of options, the GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) provides consumers various ways to view, listen, create, and share meaningful events and special content with those who matter most.
Whether surfing the web at home or reading during commute, the GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) is packed with enhanced content and intuitive design perfect for viewing or sharing content with friends and family, and capturing all of life’s spontaneous moments.
“The GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) is packed in one handy design to satisfy all your mobile entertainment and sharing needs,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd. “Whether you use it for viewing videos, playing games or reading books, the slim bezel enhances your enjoyment with a bigger screen space. More consumers are adopting Samsung tablets, making us Singapore’s preferred tablet brand.”
Samsung increased its brand share for tablets in Singapore from 14.8% in June 2012 to 64.4% in June 2013, according to GfK retail audit for media tablets volume sales for the period June 2012 and June 2013.
Exceptional Reading and Entertainment Experience
Designed to be held in one hand, the GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) is the optimal device for viewing videos, playing enhanced games, and reading e-Books anytime, anywhere. A slim bezel provides for effective and maximum screen use so features like Samsung’s “reading mode” technology which optimizes the display to deliver perfect illumination and tone for comfortable paper-like readability in a variety of lighting conditions is better enjoyed on its 8-inch screen.
Samsung’s Sound Alive for Audio and Dolby Surround for Video Play maximize every sound to allow users to enjoy clearer dialogue, consistent volume levels, and superior audio to further enhance the overall multimedia experience. The physical keys on the bezel at the bottom of the GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) give users a comfortable smartphone-like experience in navigation.
Enhanced Smart Usability
Making travel and discovery more effortless, the GALAXY Tab 3 (8.0″) features S Translator1, which provides instant translation through voice recognition and via text on applications including email, text message, and ChatON. This instant translation is possible both from speech-to-text and text-to-speech, ensuring that you can communicate with ease while traveling internationally.
Also, Trip Advisor, the Smart Travel Companion, provides real-time local information along with the user’s travel paths. Users can get information and make reservation of the places classified in various categories such as Place, Hotel, Tickets, Food and Forum, and more. In addition, intuitive features such as Story Album and Group Play also allow users more ways to instantly share and enjoy music, photos, documents, and games with those around them.
