Looking to upgrade your original Samsung Galaxy Tab? Samsung has just officially revealed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 at IFA, claiming that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be the world’s first mobile tablet that will be sporting a Super AMOLED Plus display.
- 1.4GHz dual-core processor
- 7.7″ 1280×800 Super AMOLED Plus display
- Android Honeycomb 3.2
- 3MP/2MP back/front cameras
- LTE & HSPA+ 21Mbps
- 1080p Full HD video playback
Under the hood users will be able to expect a 1.4GHz dual-core processor along with a 5,100 mAh battery that Samsung is claiming will be able to provide up to 10 hours of video playback time. It will also feature a 7.7” display with a WXGA resolution of 1280×800, with a 3MP rear facing camera with LED flash and a 2MP front facing camera. It will be running on Android’s Honeycomb 3.2 and will sporting Samsung’s TouchWiz UX with a Live Panel menu that will allow you to customize your home screen with digital picture. Like it was mentioned before in a leak, users of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 can expect support of 4G LTE and HSPA+ connectivity on the tablet.
Those who enjoy watching videos and movies on their tablets will be pleased to know that the device supports 1080p Full HD playback. It will also feature Universal Remote Control functionality, which will allow you to connect to a variety of devices such as Blu-ray players, television sets, set-top boxes, DVD players and your AV audio system. For those who are music fans the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will also provide access to Samsung’s Music Hub service which Samsung is claiming offers over 15 million songs that you can preview/download (for a fee, of course).
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will also be thinner than its predecessor, featuring a thickness (or thinness?) or 7.89mm and a weighing in at a mere 335grams. It’s possible you will be able to fit this into your purse or bag, and possibly your pockets although we think that it might be a bit uncomfortable, and unlike its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will support both voice and video calls without the need for an additional headset or Bluetooth.
The tablet will be available in 3 sizes – 16GB/32GB/64GB and will sport a microSD card slot that will support to up 32GB. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
