Samsung Reportedly Planning Full HD 10.1 or 11.6 inch Tablet
Rumors talking about Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 and Galaxy Note 3 terminals have made the headlines over the past couple of weeks, and the first reports are saying that the South Korean company will unveil its new devices at IFA Berlin 2013. Well, the folks at Sammobile are claiming that Samsung has even more products ready to debut: a 10.1 or 11.6-inch tablet.
Sources close to Samsung quoted by Sammobile say that the South Korea-based tablet maker wants to add even more tablets to its current line-up for 2013. Reports are indicating that a tablet packing an full HD 10.1 or 11.6 inch display with Super AMOLED technology is already on the Samsung’s work tablet.
Samsung wants to bring a premium tablet on the market, in order to be capable of competing against Sony Xperia Tablet Z or Apple iPad. It seems that the South Korea-based company has already developed the prototypes of the new model and that the tablet is probably ready to be introduced to the company’s partners.
The new tablet will not be Samsung’s first model sporting a Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 had a Super AMOLED Plus display and the tablet was highly appreciated for its display and its phone functionality.
For the time being, the most powerful tablet of the company is the Nexus 10, boasting a 10.1-inch PLS TFT display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and a dual-core Exynos 5 Dual chipset based on Cortex A15 cores.
Returning to the unannounced 10.1 or 11.6 inch Samsung tablet, the source says that it will be underpinned by an Exynos 5 SoC. We don’t know yet whether it’s the Exynos 5 Dual chipset of the Nexus 10 or the new Exynos 5 Octa SoC that was fitted inside the freshly-launched Galaxy S4.
Basically, the new tablet could be a bigger brother of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, a device that might actually cannibalize the Galaxy Note 8.0 sales. Would you be interested in purchasing a 10.1-inch Samsung tablet with Super AMOLED display and Exynos 5 Octa CPU?
