Samsung introduces Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

The refresh will double the RAM, reduce the weight, add HSPA+ support and include a faster processor compared to the original
Allen Ngo,

While other tablet manufacturers such as HP and RIM are having trouble with just one flagship model, Samsung is continuing to append its lineup of Galaxy Tab tablets.

According to DailyTech, Samsung will soon be releasing an overhaul of its original 7-inch Galaxy Tab tablet. The new redesign, called the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, will be sleeker, faster and lighter than its predecessor. The device will be 9.96mm (0.39 inches) thick, weigh 345g (0.76 pounds) and include a dual-core 1.2GHz Exynos CPU, the source claims. For comparison, the original Galaxy Tab 7 is 11.98mm (0.47 inches) thick, 380g (0.84 pounds) in weight and runs on a single-core 1.0GHz Hummingbird CPU. RAM is also expected to be doubled from 512MB to 1GB with added wireless-n, HSPA+ support and a microSD slot.

In terms of software, the “Plus” model will ship with Android 3.2 while the original will be stuck with Gingerbread.

With so many Galaxy Tab models out in the market, this image here provides a very concise overview of the sizes currently available. Samsung now has all its bases covered with models ranging from the 4.27-inch Galaxy S II smartphone all the way up to the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is said to be releasing this October in Indonesia and Austria. For other markets, such as Asia, U.S. and Europe, the tablet should be making its way in the coming months.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
