Samsung Roma

After Samsung teamed-up with Google and launched the Nexus 10 last year, the South Korea-based company will reportedly launch a new 10.1-inch tablet, with a rumored pixel density of 299 ppi, corresponding to a screen resolution of 2560×1600 pixels.

The Samsung tablet is codenamed Roma and is developed around a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, most likely a based on Cortex A15 cores, being a member of the Exynos 5 tribe. The Samsung Rama technical specifications list also includes 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded using microSD cards (up to 128 GB supported), a 5 megapixel camera on the back with full HD 1,080p video recording support and a front-facing 1.9 megapixel camera ideal for video calls.

The Samsung Rama specs sheet also includes WiFi N module with DLNA support, Bluetooth 4.0 useful for pairing it with various accessories, and microUSB connector for data transfers.

According to the yet unconfirmed details, the new Samsung 10.1-inch tablet measures 257 x 177.7 x 8.4 mm and weighs 583 grams, being quite small and light for a 10.1-inch slate. Despite being both thin and light, the model includes a 9,000 mAh battery, so the battery life should be above expectations.

The new 10.1-inch tablet codenamed Samsung Roma will come pre-loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, of course, customized with the proprietary user interface developed by the popular smartphone and tablet maker.

Unfortunately, the photo that leaked along with the Samsung Roma technical specifications doesn’t reveal too many details about the new 10.1-inch slate, except for giving us some hints about its shape.
