Seen last week in some leaked photos that suggested it’s headed to T-Mobile USA, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has been officially announced a few hours ago.
The new tablet is the true successor to the original 7 inch Galaxy Tab, and is both lighter (345g) and thinner (10mm) than it. The Tab 7.0 Plus obviously offers enhanced features, like Android 3.2 Honeycomb, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and HSPA+ connectivity. The 7 inch display’s resolution remained unchanged, though: 1024 x 600 pixels.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will come in 16GB and 32GB flavors. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, 3MP rear camera with Led flash, and 2MP front-facing camera.
According to Samsung, the new Honeycomb tablet will be first available in Indonesia and Austria (starting late October). After that, the tablet will be launched around the world in Europe, the US, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. For the moment, there’s no word on the price of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, but it should be lower than the price of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 (which is also unknown).
