Samsung is pushing the limits of large smartphone and small tablet once again. The company just launched the 7-inch Galaxy Tab Q, which looks and acts like a giant Galaxy S5.

There were rumors that Samsung was preparing to launch its largest smartphone to date. We reported on what was believed to be a 7-inch version of the Galaxy Mega 2 phablet series. Images of the handset showed that it was headed to China Mobile and could possibly end up in the U.S. since it passed through the FCC.

Samsung hasn't officially announced the Galaxy Mega 2, but we know that it's expected to be released by both AT&T and Sprint. The phablet will feature a 5.9-inch display, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and 12-megapixel rear camera. This model appears to be the sole member of the Galaxy Mega 2 phablet now that the 7-inch Galaxy Mega 2 has been officially named the Samsung Galaxy Tab Q.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Q features a 7-inch 1280 x 720 HD TFT display with a color depth of 16 million. It's powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Galaxy Tab Q's camera capabilities consist of an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. In terms of wireless connectivity it ships with a 4G LTE radio that supports simultaneous voice and data, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0 (Low Energy), Glonass, GPS, and NFC. Samsung has included 16GB of internal storage and microSD expansion slot that will support up to 128GB microSD cards.

The Galaxy Tab Q's dimensions come in at 191.8 x 99.7 x 8.9 mm and it weighs 250 grams. It looks like a giant Galaxy S5 with the Galaxy Note 3's faux-leather back, designed to give tablet a more premium feel. It will ship with a large 3,200 mAh battery.

Samsung has only launched the Galaxy Tab Q in China with China Mobile and hasn't announced if or when it plans on launching the 7-inch smartphone in other regions. Would you be interested in a 7-inch smartphone like the Galaxy Tab Q? Let us know in the comments below.
