7-inch Samsung Galaxy W launched in China as Galaxy TabQ

Samsung Galaxy TabQ

It was back in early June when we’ve told you about the Samsung Galaxy W, the 7-inch tablet with voice and cellular connectivity. Said device has also been caught at the FCC, hinting us it could also be unveiled in other parts of the world, perhaps even in North America.

Now we have the same tablet / huge phone launching in China under a different name. Here, users will be able to pick it up as Galaxy TabQ, which we find as a more logical name. You see, this is first a tablet (hence the “Tab” part) and then everything else. It’s really hard to imagine that many folks sticking a 7-inch phone to their ear; sure, there are Bluetooth headphones that go perfectly with “phones” like these, but even that scenario is hard to imagine. Simply put – these sort of devices are everything but easy to carry around, to say the least. You’ll need some purse or bag all the time.

On the other hand, it seems that mobile users in Asia are willing to make such compromises as long as they can enjoy multimedia content on a such big screen.

Specs wise, the Galaxy TabQ has a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400?), 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, GPS + GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 3,200 mAh battery; the mentioned 7-inch screen supports 720p HD resolution. There are two versions of the TabQ, one made for China Mobile (SM-T2558) and the other for China Unicom (SM-T2556)…
