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.

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.
