Samsung announces launch of new smartphones and tablets in Singapore
On the first week of 2012, Samsung has announced their new lineup of smartphone and tablets which include the GALAXY Nexus, Omnia W, GALAXY W, GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus and GALAXY Tab 7.7.
The Samsung GALAXY Nexus was announced in October to be the world's first smartphone to run Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Equipped with a 1.2GHz processor, the phone features a 4.65-inch high definition Super AMOLED display and comes with various new innovations including Face Unlock, photo taking with zero shutter lag as well as Near Field Communication (NFC). However, for those who are eagerly waiting for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will have to wait a while longer. The company said that Android smartphone is expected to be available in February next month.
While the GALAXY Nexus touts itself as the world's first smartphone with Android 4.0, this new Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 claims to be the world's first tablet to feature the Super AMOLED Plus display. The tablet is extremely slim and portable, measuring 7.89mm in thickness and weighing 335g. It is powered by 1.4GHz processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage. If that's not enough, the GALAXY Tab 7.7 has a microSD card slot for expansion. The tablet runs Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb and has a 5,100mAh battery that can provide up to 10 hours of video playback. Like the GALAXY Nexus, the Samsung GALAXY Nexus will be available in February.
