Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Hands-on and Impressions [CES 2012]


We got a chance to get our hands on Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 7.7, an Android-running tablet that has a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. The device is extremely thin and light and very comfortable to hold. The display was beautiful and that’s because Samsung was able to stretch their Super AMOLED Plus technology into a 7.7 inch beaut.

It’s long been known that this technology in this size was scarce in quantity from Samsung as they favored displays from 3.5 to 4.65 inches. We’re not sure whether that has to due with technical or logistic issues but it’s comforting to see that Samsung is confident enough that this technology is ready for the big screen.

Unfortunately Samsung was unable to tell us which processor they had inside but the 1.4GHz chipset ran Android and TouchWiz quite smoothly. We imagine things will get even better with Android 4.0 but they had no details on its arrival to the tablet.

TouchWiz is almost the same since I last used it (on the Tab 10.1) but there are a few minor UI changes. There’s nothing too huge to make a big deal about but it all does look just a tad nicer and performs just a tad smoother. Verizon will be getting this one sometime soon and Samsung wouldn’t confirm whether or not other carrier partners were lined up. Check out the video demo above.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I think this is the one with Exynos they first showed at Germany last year.

    1. Was the one in Germany LTE? If not that it most likely isn’t since the Exynos currently doesn’t support LTE, unless it’s a newer Exynos..

  2. The one I’ve been waiting for, but if they release only carrier versions instead of a wifi model, Asus 7.0 will be it instead.  Still, can’t wait to see what SAMOLED + looks like on 7.7 screens.

  3. What resolution is it? If it’s at least 1080, I’ll wet my pants.

    1. It’s 1280×800 according to GSM Arena. My pants remain relatively unsoiled, but still very nice.

  4. Wifi only with Exynos please
