Behold, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Q 7-Inch Smartphone Michael Kwan July 25, 2014 When the original Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone hit the scene, many of my friends thought it was comical in size. We joked how it would only be a matter of time before we held tablets up to our faces to make phone calls. Well, here we are just a little over two years later and 5-inch phablets have somehow become the norm. Oh, and about using tablets as smartphones, that’s happening too with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Q. The name may lead you to believe it’s just another tablet from Samsung and the Galaxy Tab Q is indeed officially part of the Galaxy Tab family. Unlike every other true “tablet” though, the Galaxy Tab Q comes equipped with a regular old microphone and a regular old earpiece where you’d normally find them on a smartphone and it does indeed support voice calling. In this way, while it is officially a tablet, it’s really more like a giant 7-inch phablet. Has Samsung gone too far? The design styling is in line with the Galaxy Note 3 or the Galaxy S5 with the leather-like finish on the back. Unfortunately, the specs aren’t nearly as impressive as the size. The Galaxy Tab Q has a 1.2GHz quad core processor, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, microSD expansion, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, GLONASS, Wi-Fi, 3200mAh battery and 4G LTE support. The 7-inch HD TFT display is a mere 720p. There will be two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Q, neither of which appear to be coming to North America. The SM-T2558 is bound for China Mobile, while China Unicom will get the SM-T2556. Via SammyHub Share This With The World!
