Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 shines with Super AMOLED Plus display

You know that gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display on the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone? You know how the colors are positively popping with saturation and the overall visual experience absolutely floors you? You will soon get a bigger version of that eye-popping visual, because the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the world’s first tablet to boast a Super AMOLED Plus display.

This is a huge upgrade over the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab that I reviewed earlier this year, going well beyond the extra 0.7-inches of screen real estate. The Super AMOLED Plus-ness is great, but you’ll also find a beefed up 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 3MP rear and 2MP front cameras, LTE and HSPA+ 21Mbps support, and 1080p full HD video playback. Not surprisingly, they’ve also moved up from Froyo on the original Tab to Honeycomb 3.2 on the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

The TouchWiz user interface features something called a “Live Panel” menu, allowing you to customize your home screen with digital pictures on the 1280×800 WXGA resolution touchscreen. The 5100mAh battery is said to be good for up to 10 hours of video playback, so you should be able to get a solid day out of more standard tablet usage. It measures 7.89mm thin and weigh 335 grams. This makes it much smaller than the 10-inch alternatives, but shaving down the screen size can do that.

Yes, the 7.7-inch display is a bit of an odd-ball number, but I totally dig the SAMOLED+. There’s no word on pricing or release date yet, but Samsung has indicated that the microSD slot-touting Galaxy Tab 7.7 will ship in your choice of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities. Want. Want now.
