Fake Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Video “Leaked,” Specs Included

So this morning we've been handed a tip that notes OLEDinfo having a leaked video and specs on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. Of course we ran on over with our shoes untied because that's the sort of thing we'd love to post. We watched the video and checked out the specs - and we call shenanigans. Feel free to check out the video below (which has been posted to a YouTube account started yesterday, mind you, with spam below pushing the video as "LEAKED!!!" - really, guys? Really?

There's nothing flying around, there's no people having an awesome time shooting photos, there's no awesomeness at all in this video - all that we could forgive if it wasn't for the fact that the type is terrible, the music is totally unprofessional, and there's a weird white block popping up before the "Samsung Galaxy Tab 2" logo at the end. Could the images and the logo be real? Maybe. Is the video real? No way.

Here's the specs they've got listed as well, take them as you will:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
- Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread (upgrade 3.0 Honeycomb)
- 3D Display (after upgrade to 3.0 Honeycomb)
- NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
- 7-inch Super AMOLED screen with Monster Resolution (2048 x 1200 pixel)
- Gorrila Glass screen
- Main Camera: 8.0 megapixel camera with HD video recording (1080p) with Dual LED flash
- Front Camera: 3.0 megapixel camera
- 3G
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v3.0,
- USB Port
- 64 GB Internal Memory
- MicroSD Slot (up to 32 GB)
- 1024 MB RAM
- Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Barometer
- Colours: Black-Black, Black-Silver, White-Silver

Anything in there seem reasonable to you? Lots of things could very well be true. I'm definitely liking the idea that there are several color choices, but this hasn't been a popular sort of thing to offer on many devices of late. 3D display? No. Android 2.3? Probably not, looking more like a 3.0 Honeycomb release for name-brand Android tablets like this one from Mobile World Congress forward. How about the rest?

    Not that I have a clue but I don’t think Samsung will use the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. They will probably use a self-developed CPU.

    Samsung moving away from their own processors to put in a competitors would be a very strange move. More reason to take this video as nothing less than a fan-made rumor.

    I wish the Tab 2 would be coming out this early, but with a release late last year, I doubt we would be seeing one for quite some time.
