I have just got a new Samsung GALAXY Tab 4 7.0" (SM-T230NU).

What is the difference (or improvements) between the 'stock' SM-T230 model GALAXY Tab 4 7.0" and the 'newer' SM-T230NU, recently released for US/Canada and in EU?

Are there also other NU devices? I have also seen references to the GALAXY Tab 4 10.1" as SM-T530NU.

I have found one possible issue, with the SM-T230 not having multi-user mode:

The multi users setting is not available. According to the manual it should be at settings => General => Users.

(My device does have multi-user capability)

I also saw a reference to the two different models on XDA Developers:

Do make sure your tablet is a T230NU model and not just a T230 model.

UPDATE: 04-Jul-2014

There are three variants: T230, T230NT, T230NU

According to other reviews, the plain SM-T230 does not support OTG, but the SM-T237p does.

I remember how disappointed I was to find this with my SM-T210R.


SM-T230nu has an IR remote, while a simple tab 4 (SM-T230) doesn't have one.

  • The SM-T230NU (Tab4 7.0) is a regional model, for North America (US/Canada). I can confirm it DOES have an IR 'port', whereas the SM-T330 (Tab4 8.0) does NOT. I have yet to examine an international model SM-T230 (Tab4 7.0).

  • Is there anything to suggest that is the ONLY difference?
