Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with Honeycomb to be Announced Sunday

Samsung will be announcing a new tablet this coming Sunday evening at the opening of Mobile World Congress. The new tablet will be larger than the Galaxy Tab in that it will have a 10.1 inch screen although we hear that it will also be thinner and lighter than the smaller 7 inch model.

The device name isn’t known just yet, although it could be the Galaxy Tab 2. The OS running on this new model will be Android 3.0 Honeycomb and when launched, it will go head to head with the Motorola Xoom and the iPad.

Other features include an 8 megapixel camera along with a dual-core processor provided by Qualcomm. Other than that, details are not known.

As for the previous mentioned 9 inch tablet, it is expected that this 10.1 inch model will actually replace that.

What is interesting to note is that we have heard that the overall size of the tablet will be smaller than the Apple iPad, despite it having a larger screen. Reasons for this will be a smaller bezel around the edge which is still quite large on the iPad.

We’ll get all the details when announced.
