Samsung Launches Galaxy Tab Q in China
Samsung launched the Galaxy W, a 7.0-inch “phoneblet” in Korea. It seems like the device is now making its way into China under a different name – the Galaxy Tab Q.
The device comes with a 7.0-inch 720p HD TFT screen powered by an unnamed 1.2GHz quad core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. The Galaxy Tab Q also comes with an 8.0 megapixel shooter and a 2.0 megapixel front facing camera. All this is powered by a gigantic 3,200 mAh battery. The device also comes with 4G LTE connectivity via a micro SIM card slot and has microSD card support. The devices internal storage remains unknown. But the device is rumoured to come with Android 4.3 JellyBean. The Galaxy Tab Q takes its design queues from the Galaxy Note 3 with its faux leather back.
From the specifications, there is no doubt that Samsung intends for users to be able to use the big 7.0-inch tablet as a phone as well. Unlike in the U.S. and the U.K, the concept of using a tablet sized device as a phone is not alien. In fact, Samsung has seen measurable success with devices such as the Note 8.0 which came with similar functionality.
There’s no word on the release of this decidedly midrange tablet/phone hybrid in other regions.
