Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE announced for Korean market, with voice call support and all


It is rare to see Samsung products being announced in the US before its homeland. But the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE has just been announced for the South Korean market, and will be available from SK Telecom. For 800,000 won (about $716 US dollars), the world’s thinnest tablet will be in our fellow Koreans’ hands.

It comes with all the expected specs. These include Android 3.2 (will get Android 4.0), a 7.7 Super AMOLED Plus display (1280×800), a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 3 MP rear-facing camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera and 16/32 GB of internal storage. But Korea is getting an extra special treat.

As opposed to the US Galaxy Tab 7.7 (Verizon), this one will also feature support for voice calls over LTE. This feature is usually stripped from US versions, which may come as a disappointment. The same happened with the OG Galaxy tab (7-inch), which had call functionality in the whole world, except the US.

Not that we would necessarily prefer to walk around talking on our 7-inch devices, but having the option doesn’t hurt. I remember envying some of my family members across the border, for being able to use their tablet as a phone.

Regardless, if you happen to be a South Korean resident, this one is coming soon to a store near you. So go right on and purchase it. And if you thought the Galaxy Note was too small, this 7.7-inch tablet will probably do the trick.

  1. I wonder when Samsung will be delivering a tablet which will compete directly with the iPad. A sort of what Motorola did with the Xoom one year ago.

    1. Yeah, that Xoom was some serious competition for the iPad. If you consider a buggy, slow to be updated, crappy screen tablet that didn’t sell squat to be competition.

      1. Got a better comparison? Go on then.

    2. Only when that “Tab” is ready. I think Samsung is playing it smart here. They want to play it like Apple for premier devices. They will announce their products just 1-2 weeks before shipping. They will also try to show how it’s better than “new iPad”. Till last year, they announced the products long before their shipping date. 
      I guess the announcement would be sometime in May/June.

      1. I really hope so!!

  2. I just can’t get over the freakin amoled screen at this size.  That alone is worth the money.  It’s unfortunate they didn’t have this tab when i got my ip2.
