Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 launched; priced at Php32,990

Samsung Philippines today launched their premium tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 P6800, which sports a full Super AMOLED display and a thin 7.9mm profile.

Announced back in September 2011, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the biggest tablet with Super AMOLED display at 7.7 inch (diagonally), trumping the 5.3″ of the Galaxy Note.


Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 P6800 specs:
7.7″ Super AMOLED Plus display @ 800 x 1280 pixels
1.4GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor
Mali-400MP GPU, Exynos chipset
16GB, 32GB, 64GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
HSDPA 21Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
Bluetooth 3.0 w/ A2DP
3.15MP camera with 720p video recording
2MP front-facing camera
micro-USB port
5100mAh Li-Po battery
Android 3.2 Honeycomb

Unfortunately, the tablet is still running on Android Honeycomb but should be upgradeable to Android ICS soon.

The suggested retail price of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is Php32,990.

We’re expecting a review unit by Monday or Tuesday next week and show you some hands-on photos.

    • accidentally_cool says:

      they’re still figuring out what the perfect size for tablet is, i wouldn’t be surprise if they will make 7.8, 7.9, 8, 8.1 also.hehe

      for me there should only be two sizes 10″ and 7″.

  5. accidentally_cool says:

  6. frieditlog says:

    I almost bought one here in riyadh, it cost P28,500 pero wala syang IR Blaster sa mga GT-P6800 na release dito.

  7. Edu says:

    No thanks, I’ll pass on this Sammy. iPad 3 is coming out soon with retina like display :-)

  8. Bjez says:

    its a little to expensive and no the ipad3 wont be out yet… not in the next 4-5 months. for the pice wait for asus to start shipping the fixed tf201 the current stocks they are selling i the ph are mostly broken.

  9. Bogs says:

    I would like to get one of these pero deal breaker yung kawalan ng ir. pwede sanang gawing remote sa tv heheheh!

    what is the use of tablet if you already have an smartphone? portability? meron naman superlight laptop or ultrabook for longer battery life full access pa compared sa tablet na limited lang ang pwede mo magawa. I will not waste my money for nonsense tablet. I will invest for i7 laptop with ssdrive.

  11. booboo says:

    maganda nga yung maraming sizes for more choices. may mga kilala ako na ayaw ng iPad kasi masyadong malaki. Meron naman may ayaw ng Kindle Fire kasi masyado daw maliit. So 5/7/8/10, pili na kayo. :p

  12. jizzyeah says:

    Buy this or wait for around 8 months til Windows 8 tablets come out? lol

  13. dude says:

    For the price I don’t think it is worth it being that the Asus memo is coming soon at around 10k and has quad core and a pen. My opinion. I do love Samsung but there tablets are just over priced. I don’t need HD video capture on a tablet. Make the camera 2 or 3 mega pixel and that’s enough. For tablets the front facing camera is more important to me then the rear shooter

  14. miongb says:

    this is overpriced! and if samsung says that it is priced thst way is because of its super amoled screen, then i dont need it for a tablet! i own the original tab 7 and thanks to the guys at xda, i installed a custom rom and its now way faster and smoother than my officemate’s galaxy tab 7 plus! for this price, better wait for the quad core prime!

  15. kevin says:

    Apple’s upcoming iPad3 may be exciting to look forward to but with iOS it looks good, polished and simple but Android is more flexible therefore users have more freedom with their units. Although Sammy’s tablet is one of Android’s best, I am saving money for the ASUS Transformer Prime tablet because aside from its hardcore specs, its vaunted battery life eventually is the dealmaker for me.

  16. accidentally_cool says:

    ipad3 or ipad2s whatever apple will call it will announced this coming march so better wait for it, there’s also Asus Memo to look forward to. Since I discovered the oil slick in Galaxy Tab 10, I lost my interest in Galaxy Tabs.

  17. hanjo says:

    sir abe, (or anyone who is kind enough to enlighten me):

    ano po ba lamang nito over samsung galaxy tab 7.0,plus? mukhang screen lng and slight processor upgrade ang na-notice ko. thanks!

  18. petken says:

    Ilang GB yung Php32,990?

  19. Phillip says:

    This what I’ve been waiting for! Well, at least last year. Since I owned a super AMOLED displayed phone before, it has been my standard when it comes to screen quality. Whenever I use other phones’ display, i keep comparing them to Super AMOLED and just misses it. For me it’s not “JUST THE SCREEN,” but it’s “THE SCREEN” because how mainly do you use the phone/gadget? Since more or less 90% of the time/usage you rely on the screen, so why not get the best? Just my 2 cents. ;)

    • NineSwordz says:

      Totally agree.

    • Reia says:

      Ditto! I used to have a Samsung Wave I which has Super Amoled & bought a Wave II in its place when it was stolen. Although the Super LCD was really good & i’ve never had to use more than “1” for screen brightness; compared to Super Amoled it felt like a few levels downgrade to me.
      I almost bought a Galaxy note since it’s the only one with Super Amoled albeit I find the screen too small. This tab came at just the right time. I’ve been waiting for the 32gb since all I see are the 16gb version. :) Now if only the price drops even by a few thousands then we’re good. :D

  20. Ray says:

    This price point makes it compete with the Transformer Prime 32 GB + Dock… The many problems the TF Prime has pulls it down a bit but I’m hopeful that Asus will fix them in the future.

  21. ronald says:

    It’s selling for P34,000 in samsung shops. I bought one in greenhills for P31,000 with no samsung warranty. It’s the best. I’m also eagerly awaiting for the asus transformer prime tf700t in the second half of the year. If the ipad 3 does not have a flash at the back, i’m getting the asus transformer prime.

  22. EarlZ says:

    It still has the same screen inconsistency as the galaxy s2, both store units I saw had different screen qualities.. none really better than each other and also the color saturation on skin tones are a bit too much, they also applied a more agressive sharpening filter on the mdine engine.

    Sa ganyang presyo, dapat touchscreen TV na lang. Mahal-mahal tapos gawa lang pala sa china…

  24. geekninja says:

    I bought this tab. Yes, it’s a bit pricey, but the screen alone makes it worth every penny. It’s an amazing device, seriously. I think it’s the perfect size. I feel that if you’re gonna get anything above 9 inches, go get a laptop instead.

    Pwede na rin, may kamahalan pero mukhang bawi naman sa specs at performance. But I still love my GNote though. :D

  27. geekninja says:

    It’s an outstanding device that’s well worth the price. I made a review of it on my blog. :)

  28. Fabs says:

    32,900 is it 32 GB internal memory. Where is it available?!? TIA!!!

  29. Asking questions are in fact good thing if you are not understanding something completely, except this paragraph presents
    fastidious understanding yet.
