Samsung is having a gala time with the mystery surrounding its upcoming Galaxy Note 4 handset. Curiosity about the Note 4 is high because the company is long overdue for hardware updates. Apart from the Note 4, Samsung has been rumored to launch a few mid-range handsets in emerging nations.
Today, at least one among the new handsets has finally reached China as Samsung Galaxy TabQ. The 7-inch massive Android smartphone looks like a tablet but can be used as a regular calling device, plus it also lets you connect with outer world, all thanks to super fast LTE connectivity. Interestingly, it's the same phone which launched in South Korea last month, with a different marketing name.
Samsung's biggest handset yet, the Galaxy TabQ, neither resembles to a regular 7-inch tablet nor has an attractive design of a smartphone. Design wise, it has the same leather-stitched back cover, and looks very similar to the Galaxy S5. The strange phone is made out of polycarbonate plastic. Furthermore, its hardware specifications are not that great either.
To begin with, the device has a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800-pixels. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor (unknown type), paired with 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and a microSD card support ( up to 64GB). The Galaxy TabQ also sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED Flash, alongside a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. The giant tablet is powered by a huge 3200mAh battery.
On the downside, the Galaxy TabQ runs on the out-dated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean mobile OS. Also, the device weighs-in at 250g.
This not so good looking phone comes in Black color. There's no word on pricing or release date yet.
