IFA 2011 Samsung Reveal: Galaxy Tab 7.7 Now Official – Specs

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablet devices keep on coming. Hot on the heels of the Tab 8.9, the newly-announced 8.9 LTE version and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE variant, we now have official news of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 as revealed at IFA 2011 in Berlin.

As you’d imagine the Tab 7.7 has a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with resolution of 1280 x 800 and it also adds a very tasty 1.4GHz dual-core processor. The Super AMOLED Plus display will please a lot of people as it’s the same kind of display as on the Galaxy S II which has received a lot of praise and Liliputing points out that it is in fact the first Android tablet featuring Super AMOLED Plus. It runs on Android 3.2, a taste of Honeycomb, with the Samsung TouchWiz UX (optimized for tablets) running on top.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 also has an HSPA+ radio capable of reaching download speeds of 21Mbps and weighs 0.74 pounds, that’s 335 grams. Further specs, according to Dana Wollman over on Engadget, include a 16 to 64GB range of internal storage, microSD card slot and the usual 802.11n WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth 3.0. There’s also a 5,100mAh battery, which should perform for up to 10 hours of video playback time and dual cameras of 3-megapixels and 2-megapixels.

Samsung also stresses in a press release, which you can see at the
Engadget link above, that the Galaxy Tab 7.7 can be used as a phone as well as a tablet and a Receiver Mode is incorporated that enables privacy in public for calls. Release details and price have so far not been announced.
