The tablet is developed and manufactured by Samsung Electronics and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, however Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is now available for the tablet. The Samsung Galaxy 2.0 is part of the second generation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab series succeeding the Galaxy 1.0 10.1.

It also features a 3 Megapixel rear camera and a front VGA camera for Video Call. The standard colors are either Titanium Silver or Pure White.
To distinguish this tablet from the previous and later models, hold it in the landscape position, and look along the edge without the camera, you should see the word SAMSUNG written in white text on the black tablet, or gray text on the white tablet.
