By Gary Johnson - Sep 1, 2011

Despite the ongoing legal difficulties the company has been experiencing with Apple, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Note smartphone have just been announced. The devices were just showcased at the IFA event in Berlin and the Tab 7.7 is an update to the original tablet the company first released.

According to TechRadar the new Galaxy Tab will have the next generation of display courtesy of a super AMOLED screen. It promises to have rich colors and high quality contrast ratios with 1280 x 800 resolutions. The device will be running Android Honeycomb powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, and be capable of 1080p video playback.

Supplying the power to the device is a 5100mAh battery, and it has a 3-megapixel camera on the back while on the front is a 2-megapixel shooter. Consumers will get a lot of storage options in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions. Users can also boost this via the microSD slot.

The company has also announced the Galaxy Note at the same event that has a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display. This also has a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and is aimed as a smartphone tablet cross over. The powerful device leaves the current iPhone for dead and will run Android Gingerbread. It has an 8-megapixel camera round the back, with a 2-megapixel unit on the front.

It is only 9.65mm thick which although not quite as slim as its cousin the Galaxy S 2, it’s still not on the large side. The Note will be LTE compatible and if you are worried about battery life from the monster handset don’t be, as it is powered by a 2,500mA Li-on unit. It also has a built in stylus.

The Note certainly looks a desirable device and may make some consumers hold fire getting hold of the Galaxy S II that is about to be released in the US. At the time of writing there is no information regards release dates or pricing as the company are currently talking to carriers worldwide.
