The company also unveiled a smaller, 7.7” Galaxy Tab, complementing the existing 8.9” and 10.1” models. Both the two latest, smaller models will also be capable to make phone calls.
The 7.7” model features a Super Amoled+ screen, a dual-core 1.4GHz applications processor, up to 64GB of storage and a 5,100mAh battery that asserts 10 hours of video playback. The screen resolution is the first to surpass Apple’s ‘Retina’ display, though the iPad has a larger screen.
Samsung also announced that its ‘Smart TVs’, which connect to the internet, will also be the only ones to play 3D YouTube videos, after signing an elite deal with the Google-owned website.
Samsung asserts customer research has specified a demand for longer battery life and note-taking abilities, although with details on prices and availability unconfirmed, the new products’ prospects are uncertain.
