Samsung Officially Unveils The ATIV Q, ATIV Tab 3, And Galaxy NX


Samsung made some pretty interesting announcements at their event today in London. The Korean manufacturer took the wraps off of three new products in the ATIV Q, ATIV Tab 3, and the Galaxy NX. We know how much you guys love reading about the specs of the latest gadgets, so below you can find the detailed specifications for each new device.


Starting off with the Samsung ATIV Q, the first thing worth mentioning is that the convertible tablet is the first tablet capable of running two operating systems simultaneously (both Windows 8 and Android Jellybean), or dual-boot as it’s refered to by PC consumers. The specs look pretty good too:

  • Processor: Fourth-gen Intel Core i5
  • Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB SSD
  • Display: 13.3-inch with the jaw-dropping resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels

  • Camera: Front facing shooting 720p HD video

  • Battery: Samsung claims it can run ATIV Q’s juice for up to 9 hours
  • Connectivity: USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 port each, micro HDMI, Ethernet port (via a dongle), and an SD card slot


Moving on to the second star of the night, the most noteworthy thing about the ATIV Tab 3 is that it’s the world’s thinnest tablet (currently) at just 8.2mm thick.

  • Processor: Intel ATOM Z2760 CPU
  • RAM: 2GB

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8
  • Battery: Samsung claims 10 hours of usage
  • Connectivity: microUSB, microHDMI, microSD


And finally, Samsung announced a camera-handset running Android Jellybean 4.2.2 on board that features a 20MP lens. No, its not a phone. It’s a full on camera that can just do a lot of the same things your Android powered phones do.

  • Lens: 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor

  • Battery: 4360mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 136.5 x 101.2 x 25.7 (37.65) mm, 495g (w/ battery)

After looking at the specs, I have to admit, the Korean tech-giant did a great job. All the devices have pretty fast processors under the hood and feature beautiful and big high-resolution displays. Dual boot was definitely a surprise for the mobile industry and we are happy that someone finally made it happen. Personally, I liked the fact that the company finally decided to give a chance to another fast-growing quality OS.

Regarding pricing and release date, Samsung didn’t give us anything official to go off of. However, we expect to learn more in the following weeks via either a press release or (more than likely) some sort of leak. Stay tuned either way! Let us know which of the three devices announced tonight has you most excited by leaving a comment down below or connecting with us Twitter @PhoneBuff or me personally @OrestesPap.

    Thanks for the details. I live in South Korea and I was hoping to get a scoop on the release date and the pricing, but nobody’s talking yet. I put off buying a tablet until they started offering functionality that made them more than just toys. Either the Q or the Tab 3 fit that bill for me. Just a matter now of when and how much.
