Android Honeycomb requirements - Samsung Galaxy Tab will miss out

Hardware specs for Android tablets getting an Android Honeycomb update have leaked, despite there being no official announcement about the next Android OS. It means that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will not qualify for Android Honeycomb, and so won’t be getting an upgrade.

Bobby Cha, managing director of Korean consumer electronics firm Enspert, leaked the info that Android Honeycomb will require a dual-core Cortex A9 processor, which means that only Android tablets with the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset (which includes budget tablets like the Advent Vega) will be able to run Android Honeycomb.

This means that lots of tablets will be able to run Honeycomb, especially newer models, but one device that won’t is the Samsung Galaxy Tab, as it only has a 1Ghz Hummingbord processor. Cha also said that Android Honeycomb could require a 1280 x 720 screen resolution but that it won’t be limited to devices with 10 inch screens.

We don’t know yet whether Android Honeycomb will be Android 2.4 or 3.0. It looks like it will be for tablets, but how much of a leap it will be is still up in the air.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab? If you didn’t get to upgrade, would you be miffed?
