Rumor mills turn out delicious water, don’t they? This time, Samsung is said to be working on a successor the the original Galaxy Tab, which was a 7 inch tablet. The popular name for this new edition is the Galaxy Tab 7, of course, but you’ll be sad to know that, software wise, it won’t offer much of a jump over the original. Let’s take a quick look at the hardware specs:

  • Exynos 1.2 GHz processor
  • 1Gb Ram
  • 2GB of ROM
  • 16GB of internal memory
  • Micro SD
  • Tab proprietary connector with USB Host capabilities (adapter)
  • 7 inch WSVGA
  • IPS technology for the display
  • Ability to call, video call and send sms
  • Touch Wiz 4.0 on Android 2.3.4

That all sounds sweet (especially that Exynos), but see that last line? No Honeycomb, though considering we don’t even know if this device is real yet, we won’t tear Samsung a new one. If it does turn out to be true, though, we’re hoping Samsung’s just waiting on that sweet Ice Cream Sandwich before stepping the little guy up to a proper tablet OS. [HDBlog.It via CrunchGear]
