samung galaxy tab 7.7 front

Thanks to Samsung's Unpacked app, we already knew that the South Korean company would be announcing the Galaxy Tab 7.7 today, but now we have official confirmation along with a full list of specs to match.

It goes without saying that the latest addition to Samsung's tablet family will have a 7.7-inch display, but this display will pack a resolution of 1280 x 800, the same as the recently announced Samsung Note smartphone.

The new Tab's similarities with the Note carry over in to the specs as well; both devices have a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and a 2-megapixel front facing camera, although the rear camera on the Tab 7.7 is just 3-megapixels.

The 5100mAh battery in the new tablet is rated for "up to 10 hours of video playback time", which is sure to please people planning to use the device on a long trip.

The Tab 7.7 will run Android 3.2 Honeycomb when it's released, although Samsung hasn't provided a release date as of yet. If you're eager to buy a Samsung tablet, it isn't as if you're particularly short of options anyway, with the Tab 8.9 and 10.1 already available on the market.

    Am I imagining things, our do the specs say 8 gigs of ram?

    • Foo

      Probably 8 gigs of storage rather than RAM

        8 Gigabit (Gb) = 1 GigaByte (GB)

    I just hope they don't screw up the release schedule for updates. They are obviously putting a lot into their tablet lineup, but it would really suck to have picked the one tablet that ends up waiting an extra 4 months for each update.

    And not to pick nits, but 7.7", 8.9", 10.1"...Did they really need to put out 3 tablets that are all separated by 1.2" in size, and of course the bastard 7" that came out with 2.2? Apple may believe one-size-fits-all, but Sammy is casting a pretty large net with this selection.

    Imagine this and the Note along with family members 8.9 & 10.1 with 4g/lte on verizon and maybe other carriers, what a tablet buffet with a side order of phone
