Samsung announced the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 a few weeks ago, and now it will bring a 10.1-inch version to the market as well. The new Android tablet, announced days before Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, will launch with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 as well as Samsung’s TouchWiz and feature a 1280 x 800 display resolution.
The larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 3-megapixel rear- and VGA front-facing cameras, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and HSPA+ support. It will have a 7,000 mAh battery and come in 16GB and 32GB variants. The Galaxy Tab 2 will measure 256.6 x 175.3 x 9.7 mm, and weigh 588g.
Samsung has yet to announce pricing, but the tablet will launch in the U.K. in March.
The new Galaxy Tab 2 is a very modest update to the existing Samsung tablet lineup, especially considering it has a dual-core instead of a quad-core processor. Fortunately, it may not be the only announcement Samsung has lined up for MWC, as signage revealing the Galaxy Note 10.1 has been spotted around Barcelona. TabletPCReview has boots on the ground, and we will have a full hands-on report on this and any other tablets featured in the Samsung booth.
