In the name of… Yes, it’s yet another Samsung story. Don’t shoot the messenger, man; we don’t make the news, we just write it.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7in was pretty much the only slate to grab a significant slice of Apple’s tablet pie last year, but it’s getting on a bit now. Good news for Sammie fans and Apple haters alike then; the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7in is due for a sexy hardware upgrade.
Samsung has clearly stated that it doesn’t believe in a one-size-fits-all policy, but while the new 8.9 and 10in Samsung Galaxy Tabs are all dolled-up and high-specced and what have you, the ageing Galaxy Tab 7in doesn’t quite cut the proverbial mustard by today’s standards.
We weren’t sure if the little Froyo-running fella was destined to be left behind, but Electricpig reports that it’s due for a significant overhaul. Sweet.
The resolution will leap from 600 x 1024 to 1280 x 800. That’s more like it. It’ll also ditch its modest 1GHz processor and grab a 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung chip. And, as if that wasn’t appealing enough, the RAM will be upped from 592MB to 1GB. Nice.
It’s not yet clear if it’ll adopt Honeycomb, but we’d be surprised if it didn’t.
There’s no official release date or pricing just yet, though internet whispers suggest autumn. Stay tooned.
