Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7: First Tablet to Feature Super AMOLED Plus Display
Posted by Jonel Uy on February 7, 2012
Samsung tablets does not cease to innovate as they release their newest addition to their Samsung Galaxy Tab family in the Philippines – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet.
It features a Super AMOLED Plus display making it Samsung’s first tablet with such technology.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7‘s Super AMOLED™ Plus touchscreen display allows for watching movies, viewing photos and playing games in high-definition 720p (1280×720) resolution.
Furthermore, Galaxy Tab 7.7 runs on the Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS and features a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor and HTML Web browser to quickly access the Web and stream music, among others.
It measures just 7.9 millimeters thin (less than half an inch) and weighs only 340 grams (roughly 12 oz). However, from the units I got to expereince and inspect last Saturday (Febrauary 4), I really wished the white plastic back portion of the tablet would have been the one with a metallic finish.
