Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is powered by Android™ 3.2 Honeycomb, optimized for a 7-inch tablet with a new compatibility zoom mode, while it also supports MicroSD cards of up to 32 GB for direct media files transfer.

It includes a1080p full HD playback, DivX with multi codec. A Universal Remote Control functionality can control the entire home entertainment system – TV, Set top box, DVD, Blu-ray player and AV audio system.
Samsung’s Hub Services are also available in many markets, offering easy access to content including millions of games, eBooks, music and more, with lightning fast graphics. It is possible to call privately in public places with Receiver Mode without a headset or BT. The device also includes Google Mobile Services providing access to 250,000 applications.

The HSPA+ 21 Mbps network enables faster uploads and downloads, supporting Wi-Fi Channel Bonding connection and data transfer at twice the speed. Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual core application processor, it gives seamless multitasking and superior multimedia performance. The 5,100 mAh battery provides up to 10 hours of video playback time.

Main specifications:

  • 7.7″ 1280×800 Super AMOLED Plus display
  • Android Honeycomb 3.2
  • 3MP/2MP back/front cameras
  • LTE & HSPA+ 21Mbps

Under the hood users will be able to expect a 1.4GHz dual-core processor along with a 5,100 mAh battery that Samsung is claiming will be able to provide up to 10 hours of video playback time. It will also feature a 7.7” display with a WXGA resolution of 1280×800, with a 3MP rear facing camera with LED flash and a 2MP front facing camera.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will also be thinner than its predecessor or 7.89mm and a weighing in at a mere 335grams. It’s possible you will be able to fit this into your purse or bag, and possibly your pockets although we think that it might be a bit uncomfortable, and unlike its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will support both voice and video calls without the need for an additional headset or Bluetooth.
The tablet will be available in 3 sizes – 16GB/32GB/64GB and will sport a microSD card slot that will support to up 32GB. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
