LAS VEGAS--On Wednesday, Samsung announced a Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab , but apparently it thinks we can't get enough Galaxy Tab news. It's probably right.

On Thursday the company, along with Verizon Wireless, announced the 4G LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab.

Unlike the Wi-Fi-only Tab, this one gets a significant upgrade in at least a couple of areas. Samsung will upgrade the rear-facing camera from 3 to 5 megapixels.

Also, the CPU gets a slight speed boost, from 1GHz to 1.2GHz, using the same Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor.

Besides those details, the rest of the specs (so far) remain the same:

  • Front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder
  • Flash 10.1 support
  • 7-inch TFT display with 1,024x600-pixel WSVGA resolution
  • OS: Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • DLNA support

No word yet on any weight changes or price, and Samsung has not yet stated a release date.
