Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Announced; Runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb

Samsung has just announced the successor to the Galaxy Tab 7, the Tab 7.0 Plus. The original 7-inch Tab was the first ever Android tablet, which was a worthy’ competitor to the iPad. With a weight of 345gms, and a thickness of only 9.96mm, the Tab 7 Plus is among the lightest and the most portable tablet out there. Its light weight and slim factor ensures that the tablet can easily fit inside a jacket or a handbag.


The Tab 7.0 Plus sports a 7-inch PLS LCD display with WSVGA (1024×600) resolution, and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. The device also packs in 1GB of RAM, and will come in 16GB and 32GB variants. Other key features of the Tab 7.0 Plus include a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 3.0, HSPA+, USB host support, and a microUSB port. There are also a bunch of sensors like Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Proximity sensor etc. on-board.

The back of the tablet sports a 3MP camera with LED flash, with a 2MP camera in the front accompanying it. The Tab 7.0 Plus also packs in a microphone and a speaker, so some people can use it as a rather large phone. It can also record videos in 720p HD resolution, and can playback Full HD (1080p) HD videos.

This 7-inch Tab will run on Honeycomb 3.2, with Sammy’s TouchWIZ UI on top of it. A beefy 4000mAh battery powers this tablet. The tablet will be available in Indonesia and Austria from end-October, and will be gradually available in Southeast and Southwest Asia, US, Europe and Latin America. Sammy did not mention anything about the pricing of the device though.
