Samsung may be prepping a new 2560 x 1600 pixel tablet
Samsung will probably introduce several new tablets a Mobile World Congress in February, including an 8 inch Galaxy Note. But it looks like that may not be the only new tablet the company’s working on.
User agent profiles for at least three new devices recently showed up at the Samsung Mobile website, including one for a tablet with a 2560 x 1600 pixel display.
That shouldn’t be surprising — after all, Samsung manufacturers the Nexus 10 tablet for Google, and that tablet features the same high resolution screen.
It’s not yet clear what other hardware the tablet will have, but it appears to have the model number GT-P8200 and Engadget found benchmark results suggesting it has a 1.7 GHz multi-core processor and Android 4.2 software.
The Google Nexus 10 has a Samsung Exynos 5250 ARM Cortex-A15 dual-core processor, so it’s possible this new tablet could have the same chip… or a more powerful quad-core (or even octa-core) version.
Other new tablets appear to have 1280 x 800 pixel and 1024 x 600 pixel screens, suggesting they’ll be smaller, lower priced devices than the Samsung GT-P8200.
