Low-cost Samsung Galaxy Tab E quartet most likely headed for US


Defying all ominous tablet market forecasts of late, Samsung will most likely continue to dole out affordable 7-inch+ Androids this year, in addition to the high-end Windows 12-incher already unveiled and slated for a global February release.

The Galaxy Tab S2 pair may soon get “Lite” derivations, while the Tab E family apparently has four new members incoming for North American use. An independent US e-tailer just set up placeholder listings for the Galaxy Tab E Lite Kids, Tab E 8, Tab E 7, and Tab E Lite, the device names being pretty self-explanatory.

In fact, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 saw daylight in Taiwan last month with 4G LTE connectivity, heading next to Sprint and US Cellular, at on-contract prices that are unlikely to exceed $200. Though by no means a powerhouse, the 5.1 Lollipop-running 8-incher offers overall respectable specs, including a quad-core Snapdragon 410 chip, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, and 5,000 mAh battery.

Obviously, the other three Tab E models in the pipeline should rank lower on the totem pole, being priced accordingly, possibly starting as low as $100 with only Wi-Fi support. The Galaxy Tab E 7.0 is expected to haul a mysterious 1.3 GHz processor, 1.5 gigs of memory, 8 gigs of expandable storage space, and optional 4G LTE speeds.

Meanwhile, the Tab E Lite will of course downgrade the specs further (if that’s even possible), and the Tab E Lite Kids shall retain the extreme affordability angle, adding a protective case of sorts as standard.
