Samsung Officially Announces Galaxy Tab 7.7

| September 1, 2011 | Reply

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7, a new tablet that brings a dual-core processor and the first Super AMOLED Plus display on a tablet, today at the IFA electronics show.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 display uses the company’s active matrix organic light-emitting diode technology, which Samsung says will mean good contrast, brightness, and colors. The resolution–1280×800 with a 7.7-inch diagonal–is a bit bigger than the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab that debuted a year ago with a 1280×600 resolution.

Also on board is HSPA+ 21 Mbps mobile network technology and can make voice and video calls. Additional specs include: Dual-core processor running at 1.4GHz, 1GB of memory and support for 32GB MicroSD cards, a 5,100mAh battery good for to 10 hours of video, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera and rear-facing 3-megapixel camera with an LED flash, support for 802.11 a/b/g/n standards at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. It measures 196.7x133x 7.89mm and weighs 335g.

Pricing has not yet been been disclosed, nor has a release date. Samsung has stated that availability “depends on market” – which probably has something to do with their ongoing patent battle with Apple.
