Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G Confirmed by Verizon

January 7, 2011, By Aneej Jayan

We have seen a lot of tablet announcements and demonstrations at the CES. But now, one of the oldest tablets in the market, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is in the headlines. Verizon has announced at the CES that they will be bringing in the LTE-enabled 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab later this year.

The new version of the device will be introduced with some hardware boosts and updates.

It is known that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G will be featuring a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor instead of the 1GHz processor that we can find on the existing Galaxy Tabs.

The existing version is actually bearing a 3MP camera at the rear, but the upcoming 4G version of the device will feature a 5MP rear facing camera.

It will continue to bear the Android 2.2 Froyo OS onboard although we have seen a number of tablets preparing to roll out by featuring the latest editions of the Android OS, the Gingerbread and the Honeycomb.

As we know, the Galaxy Tab is having a 7-inch touchscreen WSVGA display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. It extends support for Adobe Flash player and even bears a 1.3MP camera at the front that enables video chatting.

Verizon launched their 4G LTE network during December 2010 and the company has stated that they are expecting a huge success for the 4G network with its capabilities. They have claimed the 4G network to be 10 times faster than the existing 3G network.

Although we don’t have any details about the exact launch date of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G, we are expecting the company to reveal them soon.
