T-Mobile is now offering pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0.
The carrier is following in the footsteps of Verizon by being one of the first major U.S. service providers to carry the device. It will be available in stores on July 23rd and will be ready for online orders on July 16 with pre-orders starting today. It will start at $384.
Verizon started offering the LTE version of the slate with support for its brand new XLTE network on June 26. It is priced at $379.99 without a contract and for $279.99 for users who don't mind a 2-year agreement.
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab 4 line earlier this year and confirmed many of the rumors surrounding it in the press release.
"Perfect for all ages, Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Tab4 line offers an exceptional multimedia experience in a more premium and portable design, making it ideal for viewing or sharing content with friends and family," wrote Samsung in a press release.
The Tab 4 comes in three sizes including 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch and will feature the same mid-range specifications that were found in the leaks.
All three of them come with LCD screens with 1280 x 720 resolution in 16:10 format, 1.2GHz processors with 1.5GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot.
The 7-inch model comes with Android 4.4 KitKat, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera and has both Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities.
The Tab 4 models feature a Note 3-like textured back cover with the leather looking plastic look. All three will be available in Black and White.
Samsung's own custom apps will also make their way to the slates including Multi Window, Samsung Link, WatchON, and Group Play.
"The new Galaxy Tab 4 line is perfect for the whole family as it comes equipped with a number of fun and shareable services allowing users to access content and stay connected with friends wherever they are," the company added.
