The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is a mid-range 3G tablet launched by Samsung a few months ago. It features a TFT 9.6-inches display with an 800 x 1280 resolution, placing pixel density at 157ppi. The aspect ratio of the device is 16:10, which is great for watching videos. The device is also powered by a quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is clad in plastic. The back is textured to give you a firm grip on the device. On the left side of the device, you will find a micro SIM slot and a microSD slot for expanding the 8GB of in-built storage to 128GB. On right side of the device is the power button and the volume rocker. At the front of the device, there is the popular Samsung home button, guarded on both sides by the multi-tasking button and the back button, which are not backlit like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, by the way. You will also find a 2-megapixel selfie camera at the top, right behind the Samsung logo. The camera can record VGA videos – not at all impressive, but not unusual for a mid-range device.
At the back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E is the 5-megapixel autofocus camera without an LED flash. This means your pictures will have lots of noise if taken in low-light conditions. Beside the rear camera is a speaker grill. At the top of the device are a 3.5mm audio jack and a charging port. And at the bottom of the device is a microphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E comes preloaded with Android KitKat with TouchWiz on top. It is not yet known whether or not Samsung will roll out Android Lollipop for this device.
There is a 5000mAh battery underneath the Samsung Galaxy Tab E which boasts of a battery life of 16 hours.
Apart from its mid-range specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E boasts of some features you will find on high-end Samsung tablets. It has the multi-window feature which will let you place two apps side-by-side and use them at the same time.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is already available in stores and costs N53,000.
