Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 unveiled: Honeycomb 3.2 and brushed metal looks
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7’s first official images showed up just minutes before Samsung’s IFA event kicks off and the tablet looks like no other Samsung slate with a brushed metal back. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The new tablet is the first to come with a display of the Super AMOLED Plus variety, which brings contrasty vibrant colors. The single-core dual-core 1.4GHz processor under the hood happens to be the same one as on the Samsung Galaxy Note and is capable of playing back 1080p videos. Software-wise it runs Android Honeycomb 3.2 spiced up with a TouchWiz UX flavor.
The Tab 7.7 also features HSPA+ connectivity with 21Mbps downstream capacity. The slate comes in four different varieties, depending on the internal storage ranging from 16 gigs to 64GB, but there’s always the SD card slot allowing you to expand that memory by up to 32 gigs.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 comes with a 5100mAh battery which Samsung promises will last some 10 hours of non-stop video playback. You won’t probably use a tablet as a camera replacement, but the new Tab features a 3-megapixel rear camera (just in case) and a 2.0-megapixel shooter up front, perfect for video calls.
