Last week an Android tablet from Samsung called the SHV-E150S made an appearance on the FCC. The device won approval for its Bluetooth, dual-band WiFi and 3G capabilities (GSM 1900). Photos of the SHV-E150S, above, show that the device features a 7.7-inch screen, a good indication that this is Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7. The aluminum and plastic back of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 also matches up with the images of the SHV-E150S, above.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 1280×800 Super AMOLED Display, dual core 1.4GHZ processor, front (3MP) and rear (2MP) cameras, microSD card slot and a 5,100mAh battery. The device is expected to run Android 3.2 however, not ICS, the latest version of Android.
No word yet on a release date for the device.
Samsung’s SCH-i815 tablet first appeared on the Bluetooth SIG site back in September. The device was later identified as a version of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 – Samsung’s 7-inch Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet. Today, the SCH-i815 hit the FCC, rocking LTE band 13 and CDMA 800/1900. That’s a sure sign that the device is coming to Verizon Wireless in the United States.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 1280×800 Super AMOLED display, a Samsung dual-core 1.4GHz processor, up to 64GB of internal storage, microSD external storage, front (2MP) and rear (3MP) cameras, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. It’s unclear if the SCH-i815 will offer this same feature set, but at the very least we’d expect something in the same ballpark – we just wish the device gets a camera upgrade.
No word yet on a release date or pricing.
Samsung’s latest 7-inch Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, made an appearance on the FCC tonight. The device won approval for Bluetooth 3.0 and dual-band 802.11 b/g/n, along with the GSM 850/1900 bands used by AT&T in the US. FCC test reports also show support for HSPA+, the quasi-4G service offered by AT&T.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will feature Android 3.2, a 1.4GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 64GB of internal storage (the model that passed through the FCC only offers 16GB, however), front (2MP) and rear (3MP) cameras, and a 5100mAh battery. The device is expected to be released in December, although no official carrier support has been announced.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab 7.7 earlier this month, and today the device won approval from the FCC. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 will, not surprisingly, feature a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED plus display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, Android 2.3, a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, and between 16 and 64GB of storage. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 won approval for its Bluetooth and dual-band Wireless-N capabilities, although FCC filings made no mention of 3G.
We don’t have any word on pricing or a ship date for the Galaxy Tab 7.7, however it looks like Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 will start shipping on October 2nd, so we’d expect the 7.7 to follow shortly after.
