Samsung has pretty much all screen sizes covered when it comes to Android devices, from 4-inch phones to its 5-inch phoneblet, right up to the 7.7,  8.9, and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab models. Not wanting the world to think it had given up on the original Galaxy Tab’s 7-inch design, Samsung has officially outed a successor to the first carrier-bound Android tablet that enjoyed appreciable consumer success.

Meet the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It has matured quite a bit, now featuring a 1.2GHz Samsung Exynosdual-core processor and a full gigabyte of RAM. Unlike the Galaxy Tab 7.7, 8.9, and 10.1, the 7.0 Plus uses a PLS LCD touchscreen that offers 768×1024 pixel resolution. There’s a more pedestrian 3 megapixel rear-facing camera (with LED flash), though the front-facing camera still packs a 2 megapixel sensor. The 7.0 Plus will come in 16GB and 32GB flavors (both with microSD expansion). 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are built in, and it’s ready for use on GSM and HSPA networks. Android 3.2 and Samsung’s custom TouchWiz UX are also on board. Continue reading
