Samsung Prepping 7-inch Galaxy Tab Replacement

Amongs the dozen or so devices that have appeared in a recent Samsung leak are two Android tablets, which leads us to believe that Samsung will come out soon with a replacement for its popular but now obsolete 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The tablet, which uses roughly the same components as the Samsung Galaxy S, was launched nearly one year ago at the IFA event in Berlin (ed: we expect the replacements to be unveiled at this year's IFA).

The P6200 and the P6210 are set to be two models whose only difference will be the presence of 3G/HSDPA on the P6210.

The rest of the suggested specification reads as follows: 7-inch 1024x600 pixel resolution, three megapixel camera at the back, two megapixel camera on the front, Wi-Fi and Android Honeycomb.

We're a bit surprised by the the choice of an unconventional 1024x600 pixel resolution for Honeycomb because it doesn't fit the screen ratio of other Honeycomb tablets like the Motorola XOOM or the Acer Iconia A500 which is 1.6:1 compared to 1.71:1 for the Galaxy Tab.

Not sure whether they will come with voice capabilities like the current Samsung Galaxy Tab and where Samsung will slot them in relation to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
