This is something that’s long overdue, in my opinion. The original Galaxy Tab has been launched last year and it deserved a good follow up device. Now Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus which, at least on paper, is the successor to the original Galaxy Tab. Samsung has unveiled so many tablets of varied sizes it is really hard to say which one is the successor to the original tablet. Since the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is the exact same size as the original, I assume that this is the real successor. Now off to the specs.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is faster than the original as it is now powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and has 1GB of RAM. Not only that. It runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb and features a seven-inch LCD with 1024 x 600 resolution. It has a 3 megapixel back camera that supports 720p video and a two megapixel front-facing camera. Of course it will not be a Samsung tablet without the TouchWiz UI skin.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is available in 16GB and 32GB variants. For the rest of the specs, see the list below.
