Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 specs leak, shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The spec sheet for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has leaked online, ahead of its expected unveiling at next month’s Mobile World Conference (MWC).

According to OLED-info, which sourced what purports to be an official clip of the Tab 2 in action, the second-ever Samsung slate will feature a seven-inch display, putting it on a par dimensions-wise with the first Tab. However, this time around it’ll be a gorgeous Super AMOLED number, as seen on the Galaxy S smartphone.

Elsewhere, there’s a rear-facing eight-megapixel snapper with HD video recording, plus a dual LED flash, and a front-facing three-megapixel camera for all your video calling needs, plus 64GB of internal memory. And to keep everything ticking over in double quick time, the Tab 2 will pack a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.

Somewhat disappointingly, the slate is set to ship with Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, rather than the tablet optimised Honeycomb iteration of Google’s platform. But when the newer version does hit the device, it sounds like it’ll be worth it. Not only will it mean larger crisper? icons and the like, it could also apparently enable support for 3D.

Samsung is expected to unveil its latest addition to the ever-expanding Galaxy range at a press event in Barcelona on February 13th – the eve of the MWC. Attendees will also get their first proper glimpse at the successor to the best-selling Galaxy S, the Galaxy S2.
