Technically IFA 2011 doesn’t start till tomorrow, but the cheeky chaps at Samsung have got the ball rolling early with their own event.
Earlier in the week Samsung told us to expect three new bada phones in Berlin, and now the South Korean manufacturer has lifted the lid on the 5.3in Galaxy Note and 7.7in Galaxy Tab.
The Galaxy Note was leaked – in name – last week, thanks to Samsung’s IFA app, but we had no idea what to expect, least of all a 5.3in Gingerbread-running stylus-toting superbeast.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a Dell Streak-style smartphone giant, with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 8MP/2MP camera combo, and removable 2,500mAh battery. Samsung Galaxy Note for the UK, please.
The revamped Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 – now the Galaxy Tab 7.7 – wasn’t exactly a secret, but it sounds impressive nonetheless. The original little guy was looking a little lame next to the new Galaxy Tabs 8.9 and 10.1.
This new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a 1280x800 Super AMOLED display, 3MP/2MP cameras, a 10-hour 5,100mAh battery, and Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) on OS duties. Oh, and the same dual-core 1.4GHz processor as the Samsung Galaxy Note.
