The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is increasingly finding itself in a legal muddle, while its smaller 8.9 inch cousin is yet to reach far and wide in the market. With this being the scenario, the South Korean giant is already into developing a new tablet with a 7 inch display. We have already discussed a new 7 inch tablet being developed by Samsung, one that will have a 7 inch AMOLED display and the new tablet that has emerged might just be it. This will be in addition to the original 7 inch Galaxy Tab, which had marked Samsung’s first foray in the tablet segment.
Going just by the rumor and speculating on its basis there are a few 7 inch display tablets that can be expected this year. These tablets identified by the model numbers GT-P6200 and GT-P6210 as of now would have a resolution of 1024 X 600 pixels and the OS could be Google Android 3.x Honeycomb. The tablet is also speculated to comes with a 2 megapixel and 3 megapixel camera built along the front and rear of the tablets. The tablets might be powered by Samsung’s 1.2 GHz Exynos chip and are slated for a release during Week 44. Right now, we are in Week 32, which means we might get to celebrate the new 7 inchers from Samsung during November, well before we are celebrating the new year.
Right now the 7 inch Galaxy Tab from Samsung that they had launched last year comes with Google Android 2.2 Froyo, which has been duly upgraded to Android 2.3 and chances are that it might never have on board Android Honey if not changed inside out.
However, the site where the story first emerged, Mobili.lt, is not among the most well known. What this means is that news is to be taken with a grain of salt. Samsung also has issued a statement claiming the leaked road map isn’t authentic, but hasn’t stated if the details mentioned are connected to what they are up to.
