Apart from the 8.9 inch sized Galaxy Tab that we know Samsung is readying for a formal launch sometime soon, it seems there is another Galaxy Tab coming our way. The new tablet, which is yet to be formally acknowledged by Samsung, might be called Galaxy Tab Plus and is designed to be compliant with HSPA+ networks. In fact, the Galaxy Tab looks to be just the original 7 inch Galaxy Tab, but with enough modifications introduced to be 4G ready.
Further, the leaked images also suggest Android 2.2 Froyo, which ran the show in the original Galaxy Tab, might have been dumped for good in favor of the more tablet optimized Android 3.2 Honeycomb. There are also some design changes meted out to the tablet, apart from the gunmetal colored back panel with a brushed metal finish, the new Galaxy Tab Plus also carries two plastic strips at the top and bottom edge of the tablet. Perhaps the last bit is Samsung’s attempt to dodge legal tangles about coming up with another tablet that might prompt Apple claiming it is iPad look-alike.
