Samsung announces Galaxy Tab 7.7, first tablet with Super AMOLED+


Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7 this morning at the IFA conference in Berlin. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be the first tablet released that sports Samsung’s gorgeous Super AMOLED+ display.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will have the following features:

  • 1.4 GHz dual-core processor
  • 7.7-inch Super AMOLED+ display
  • 7.89 mm thin, weighing just 0.75 pounds
  • HSPA+ 21MBPS support
  • 5,100 mAh battery providing up to 10 hours of video playback
  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb with Touchwiz UX
  • MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
  • 16/32/64GB internal memory for a total of up to 96GB of storage space

No details on availability of the Tab 7.7 were released, including whether or not it will make its way to the United States. With HSPA+ support (no mention of LTE anywhere in the press release), the device will likely only be available on either T-Mobile or AT&T if it does come to the US.

We know several of you have bemoaned how large the 10″ tablets are and prefer the smaller form factors found in the original Galaxy Tab. I can see your argument, though I personally prefer to lose some portability for a larger screen size.

With today’s announcement, who out there plans to make the Galaxy Tab 7.7 your next Honeycomb Android tablet? Are you disappointed in the lack of an LTE model? Let us know in the comments.
