The rumor mill had begun to suggest that Samsung would indeed launch a new tablet at this year’s IFA over in Berlin, and a leak also helped to confirm the suspicion. But the wait is over, as Samsung has officially unveiled their brand new tablet device. And, as you might expect, the device features a 7.7-inch display, making it a bit more portable than the 10.1-inch version, or even the 8.9-inch model, but just a little bit bigger than Samsung’s original Galaxy Tab.
As for other specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 will feature a 1.4GHz dual-core processor under the hood; a 5,100mAh battery; 64GB of storage; a 3MP camera around the back; and it will be running Android 3.2 right out of the box, right under Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz UX for tablets. Two things of note: first, is the remarkably thin frame, measuring in at only 7.89mm. And last, but certainly not least, that 7.7-inch display is actually a Super AMOLED Plus display.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing or availability, but Samsung did mention that it should be launching “within the coming months.” Let’s hope that’s sooner than later.
