Samsung Announces Galaxy Note And Galaxy Tab 7.7

The Galaxy keeps expanding, and while I’ve lost the track of the stars of Samsung’s Galaxy, I get confused more than ever. Well… Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note – a phone/tablet hybrid, ala the Dell Streak, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7, Samsung’s first tablet to feature Super AMOLED Plus display.

Samsung Galaxy NoteI feel confused when I look at the Galaxy Note. Samsung keeps calling it a smartphone, trying to keep things clear, but you only get confused. The screen size is a whopping 5.3″. No way can this be called a smartphone, eh.

Moving on, the 5.3″ screen is a Super AMOLED Plus HD display, again a first. The screen resolution is 1280×800 as it is clear from the name, and the pixel density is 285 ppi, which is very impressive. There’s a 1.4 GHz dual core processor under the hood, and it runs Android 2.3. There’s an 8 MP camera on the back with an LED flash, and a 2 MP unit on the front. The Note can do full HD recording and playback as well.

There’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, aGPS, and a huge 2,500 mAh battery.

Here are a couple of videos –


Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7One of the lightest and probably slimmest tablets in town, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is Sammy’s first tablet to come with Super AMOLED Plus display. As the name goes, it has a 7.7″ display, with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. There’s another first to this tablet – its pixel density of 196 ppi is the highest seen on a tablet till date.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will come with Honeycomb 3.2, with Touchwiz UI slapped onto it. There’s a 1.4 GHz dual core Exynos processor under the hood, coupled with Mali 400MP GPU and 1 GB RAM to make multitasking a piece of cake. It also supports playback of full HD videos, so you can nicely sit back and enjoy those full HD movies you have on this tablet.

There’s a 3 MP camera on the back aided with an LED flash and a 2 MP unit on the front. HD recording has been thrown in as well. Connectivity wise, it supports Wi-Fi b/g/n protocol and 3G HSPA+. On the memory front, you can chose between the 16/32/64 GB versions. This internal memory can be expanded up to another 32 GB with a microSD card. Impressive thus far eh.

PS: There’s a 5,100 mAh battery in there.
