Samsung has added a new tablet to its lineup, right before the 2012 Mobile World Congress. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is a new 7-inch tablet similar in size to the original Galaxy Tab. It runs Google’s latest version of Android, however, and features a lot of improvements compared to Samsung’s first tablet.
Highlights include a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 3-megapixel camera, a VGA front-facing camera, a 4,000 mAh battery and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. Samsung has also included the latest version of its TouchWiz UI on top of Android 4.0, adding a unique twist to Google’s latest OS.
The 7-inch WSVGA display has a resolution of 1024×600, and sports PLS TFT & LCD technology. It also has Wi-Fi, a VGA camera on the front, HSPA+ support, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, a microSD card slot and a whopping 4,000mAh battery.
As mentioned, the 10.5mm thin tablet is also loaded with Samsung services like TouchWiz UI with Live Panel, Samsung Apps support, Hub support, S Suggest which is a real-time app recommendation engine, Kies Air, ChatON, Allshare Play and more.
