First images of Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 show it might not get off Gingerbread diet

First images of Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 show it might not get off Gingerbread diet
Leaked photographs of what is alleged to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 reveal a smaller sized tablet that looks very much like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with a major difference. The navigation keys on the device are similar to what appeared on the old version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 before it was redesigned by Samsung. That could indicate that this tablet may not be receiving any further updates in software past the Android 2.3 that the device has installed out of the box. The picture, obtained by Droid Life, is not the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 which can be determined by the placing of the charging port, which is on the narrow side of the tablet as opposed to its location on the wider side where other Samsung tablets have it placed.

Unfortunately, the OS build installed on the tablet could not be confirmed by the photo since the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7's power is off in the pictures. There is some talk that the device is a tablet-sized version of the sizzling hot Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone with a dual-core Exynos processor under the hood. As far as the screen is concerned, it most likely is not an AMOLED display. As we reported, the Korean based manufacturer said that none of its tablets shipped this year would offer such a screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is seen as a replacement in the manufacturer's lineup, taking over for the original 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. That model sold over 2 million units before slowing down as Samsung started to concentrate on challenging the Apple iPad with its larger sized Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 model. Still, the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be one of the stars of the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event at Berlin's IFA show, coming September 1st.
