Official pictures and specifications have been revealed of Samsung’s new 7.7-inch Android Honeycomb tablet at the IFA show in Berlin.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 joins the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Samsung’s tablet range. The existence of the smaller screen tablet is hardly surprising – some pictures leaked earlier this week – but this is the first time we’ve seen some close-up pictures.
Powered by a 1.2Ghz dual core processor, the Tab 7.7 runs Android 3.2. At just 7.79 mm deep and weighing 335g, it looks really impressive.
But the highlight is the 1280×800 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, the first time the technology has been used on a tablet. It’s something we’re really excited about, especially considering how good the screen on the Galaxy S2 handset is.
Available with WiFi and 3G, internal memory is 32GB, which can be expanded using a microSD card. The tablet has front and rear facing cameras with resolutions of 2-megapixels and 5-megapixel respectively.
Unsurprisingly the tablet runs Samsung’s TouchWiz UX interface, with a Live Panel that enables you to customise the homescreen, along with the Social Hub, Music Hub and Readers Hub. It’s also the first tablet to support Samsung’s Game Hub.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 offers 1080p HD video playback and DivX support, while the 5100 mAh battery can provide 10 hours of video playback.
Like the original Galaxy Tab, it can be used for voice calls and Samsung claims to have improved the quality.
There’s no news yet when this will be available in the UK or of pricing information, but we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
