While most of us are dreaming about what Samsung might offer in the successor to the popular Galaxy Tab Android-powered tablet, a video and some specifications have surfaced, though they sound outrageous enough that we’re taking it with a pinch of salt. Still, if you’re in the mood for a little brain tease, check out a video and the rumored specifications of this tablet after the jump. We have to admit it’d be cool if the tablet really did incorporate a 3D display. Rumored specifications of it include:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with the option of upgrading to Honeycomb)
  • 3D display after upgrade to Honeycomb
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip
  • Gorilla Glass display
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash
  • 1080p video recording
  • 3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 3G
  • USB port
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 64GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Accelerometer
  • Compass
  • Barometer
  • 7-inch 2048 x 1200 Super AMOLED Plus display

Publisher’s note (Hubert Nguyen): it would be weird for Samsung to use a Tegra 2 processor, while they do make their own line of relatively powerful SoC (system on a chip). Although nothing is impossible, I somehow find this difficult to believe. Even if Tegra 2 is better than whatever Samsung could use in the Galaxy Tab 2, there would be huge political pressure within the company to use Samsung’s own chip. From what I can tell, the “information” is basically coming from nowhere and looks more like a fanboy’s wishlist than anything else.
