It seems Samsung couldn't wait for the Samsung Premiere event on June 20th to show off some of it's new developments. The South Korean company unveiled two new size variants of their Galaxy Tab 3 tablet at Computex this week.

Both tablets will offer similar specs with only a few key features setting them apart from each other. They will ship with Android 4.2, a 1280 x 800 display, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, a microSD slot, and optional 3G or 4G LTE. Neither tablet will come with an active digitizer and so will not include the Samsung S-Pen.

The 8-inch model will run on one of Samsung's own 1.5 GHz Exynos dual-core processors, with 1.5 GB RAM. It will also have a 5 MP back-facing camera.

The 10.1-inch model will be the first Samsung tablet to incorporate an Intel chip. The processor will be an Atom 1.6 GHz Clover Trail+ Z2560 that will run with just 1 GB RAM. The tablet will also have a 3 MP back-facing camera.

While prices have not yet been announced, the 10.1-inch model in particular looks like a budget device. The new tablets are expected to ship worldwide by the end of June.
