Product information

With Powerful performance in a portable package, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is a fantastic tool for experiencing multimedia on the go. This 8-inch tablet has a slim and lightweight design, making it ideal to slip into your bag when you’re not using it. With Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and a dual-core processor, you’ll find this little tablet is powerful enough to conquer the most demanding apps and games.

Key Features:

  • Thanks to the Samsung Exynos processor and 1.5GB of RAM, you’ll experience a smooth navigational experience with no lag and impressive multitasking abilities. Enjoy the latest games and apps without hesitation.

  • A brilliantly colourful and clear WXGA resolution display makes enjoying movies and photos an immersive experience.

  • The Tab 3 8.0 is incredibly portable, weighing just 314g and measuring under 8mm in depth, this is one fully functioning tablet that won’t drag you down.

  • The Google Play Store and Samsung Apps give you access to thousands of game and apps with anything from translation software to apps to find a local restaurant available for download. The Play Store and Samsung Hub also feature thousands of eBooks, movies, songs and other digital content.

  • Multitasking is easy on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. Dual-view mode allows you to view 2 screens at the same time, so you’ll no longer be constantly switching between apps to get the full picture. Pop-up video allows you to enjoy a video in a small, adjustable window, while you perform small tasks.

  • Samsung Sound Alive and Dolby Surround produce superior sound quality, giving you clear dialogue with consistent volume levels and making music playback sound fantastic. With Group Play, you can stream music from your Tab to other compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets, so that they’re all playing the same thing at the same time, making it possible to achieve an instant surround sound system.

  • Use your Tab 3 as an eReader, with the Readers Hub and Reading Mode, designed to optimise the display to give you a comfortable reading experience in all lighting conditions.

  • Preserve your cherished photographs in style with Story Album. Story Album allows you to organise your photos and create albums. You can apply themes and change layouts to give each event its own individual style. You can even have your albums professionally printed through an online printing service.

  • 16GB of storage will allow you to keep your most important videos, music and documents close by. If you need more space, you can also slot in a microSD card up to 64GB.

  • Connect to the internet using the built in WiFi receiver and send files at speed with Bluetooth 4.0. Use SGPS or GLONASS to navigate maps and geo-tag photos. You can also output content to your HDTV or monitor using the MHL port and control multimedia devices using the infrared LED.
