Samsung will apparently roll out the Android 4.2 Multi User update to the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. Although these tablets run Android 4.2 out of the box, they don’t feature this stock Android feature which Google introduced for tablets with the Nexus 10 last year. It is not known yet if this update will bump the Android version to Android 4.3.
It’s great to see the multi user update making its way to the two tablets as such devices are usually shared between family members or friends. The revelation comes from Sam Mobile which has accessed a couple of screenshots revealing the new addition. Surprisingly, Samsung seems to have left out the 7 inch Galaxy Tab 3 tablet from this update.
The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 comes with a 8 inch 1280×800 resolution display, a dual core Exynos 4212 chip with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz, a 5MP camera, a 1.3MP front camera, 1.5GB of RAM and a 4,450 mAh battery. The bigger Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 also comes with a resolution of 1280×800, a dual core 1.6 GHz IntelAtom Z2560 chip on board along with 1GB of RAM, a 3.15MP camera on the back and a bigger 6,800 mAh battery. Several retail outlets in the U.S. sell the Galaxy Tab 3 series of tablets with prices starting from $199 for the 7 inch variant. LTE variants of the tablet cost substantially more.
