Three days ago, Samsung officially announced the successor to the original Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Tab 2 is a relatively incremental update to the 7-inch tablet, but the device is still coming, and in the process has made an appearance within the FCC’s gauntlet. However, while the FCC approval did reveal some minor details about the new tablet, we’re still left without an exact launch date here in the States.
We do know, thanks to Samsung, that the device will be making its way to Europe first, and then finding its way to other markets at some point after that. Courtesy of the FCC, though, we know there’s 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, along with Bluetooth 2.0-connectivity. There’s also a Broadcom radio tucked away under the frame.
The Galaxy Tab 2 by Samsung features a 7-inch touchscreen display, with a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. On the back you’ll find a 3MP camera, with a front-facing VGA camera to cover their bases. The device will be launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and come in either a 16GB or 32GB version. The battery is measured at 4,000mAh.
