Today Samsung has officially presented its new tablets to the Spanish press Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. A total of four different models that are already on sale in the Spanish market. Far from repeating what the data sheet says, known and recognized by all, we will focus on something that has pleasantly surprised us, technology Dolby Surround sound, which significantly improves the audio quality of tablets.
The family Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 of the South Korean company is specially oriented to multimedia use. That is, we are not talking about tablets that have been created to work with them, as is the case with the Galaxy Note, but about tablets designed for viewing videos, listening to music and playing video games. Therefore, an improved sound system such as Dolby Surround is good news for the market, as it is the first tablet available on the market with this technology.
We have been able to test the operation of Dolby Surround this morning at the Samsung presentation. Only two of the models in the new Galaxy Tab 3 family have this audio system incorporated. These are the two of the highest level: the version with a 10.1-inch screen and the new version with an eight-inch screen. The sound improvement is really remarkable. The system works with videos, and has three different settings, depending on the type of video we are watching. If it is an action film, we will obtain an increase in the ambient tones, of the details that are commonly overlooked, which in this case adopt a hue. We are talking about details that in the cinema are heard very well, but that on a tablet are really difficult to hear if it does not have a sound system of these characteristics. On the other hand, we also have the musical configuration, which is what we must activate when we watch a concert. Equalizing music is not an easy thing, and a tablet that already has an equalization system that hides errors and makes details shine is perfect. Finally, we have a speech setting, ideal if we are watching a TED or a humorous monologue, among other options.
Maybe we can find two drawbacks to this system. On the one hand, although it also works with the speaker of the tablet itself, the truth is that where a very remarkable improvement is noticed is with the use of headphones. On the other hand, the Dolby Surround system is only compatible with the Samsung video application, and not with others from third parties, so all the videos that we want to play using this system will have to be played through this application. .
