Samsung is reportedly planning to make a killing in the tablet market with tablets like the pocket-friendly Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. It is said to be priced at $129 (£78.67).

This is according to DigiTimes. The site reports, “Samsung Electronics is reportedly planning to flood the tablet market with several different sized models including 7-, 8-, 10- and 12-inch in 2014 and will price its new 7-inch model, the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite at US$129 to attract consumers, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.”

The site adds, “Samsung will separate its 7- to 12-inch tablets into three major series: the entry-level Lite series, its mainstream series and the high-end Pro series.”

In terms of specs, the site says, “The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite reportedly features a 7-inch 1024-by-600 display, a 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of storage, a 3-megapixel camera and Android 4.2. The tablet will release in the first quarter of 2014 coming either in black or white.

“Most of the tablet' components such as panel, processor, battery and chassis, as well as assembly are supplied and done by Samsung's in-house production lines to reduce its end price.”
