Destined for the Verizon USA, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE I815 comes with much deeper pixel quality and thinner design. However, like its older versions such as the the Tab 10.1, it does not support GSM voice communication.
After the Galaxy Tab 10.1, this 7.7″ SuperAMOLED Plus screen with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution, has the highest pixel density seen on a tablet yet (196 ppi). Placed across the board, Apple’s iPad has 132ppi, Motorola’s XOOM has 149ppi and the original Galaxy Tab has 169ppi. The display is eye-watering and has already wowed people for its bright colors and off-angle viewing.
Performance is rapid and the Tab 7.7 is powered by the Exynos platform: a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU, Cortex A9, 1GB RAM and Mali-400MP GPU. It runs on Android 3.2 Honeycomb with some TouchWiz UX modifications.
It’s only 7.8 mm in width which gives it the edge against the 8.6 mm of thickness of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, hence making it the thinnest tablet out in the market.
It has a 3.15 MP rear, autofocus camera together with LED flash and 720p video recording, a 2MP front camera for video calling, variations of 16/32 GB storage and a microSD slot, and an IrDa (Infrared Data Association) port along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. It also offers 3G HSPA+ connectivity.
It would have been truly remarkable if the Android 4.0 has been featured in this version of the Tab.
