The latest Android tablets from Motorola, Samsung, Asus, and others are already setting a high bar for high-resolution displays. Most tablets designed to run Google Android 3.x Honeycomb feature 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel screens. But now it looks like the company may be working on a next generation tablet with an even higher resolution display.

The new device is rumored to have a 2048 x 1536 pixel display with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It’s also expected to run Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the next major version of Android — and the first designed to run on both smartphones and on tablets.

According to the rumor, the next-gen Motorola tablet will be thinner than the current Motorola XOOM. There’s no word on what kind of processor, storage, or other specs will grace the tablet.

  1. Wow so a semi-retina version of Apple’s 1024×768 (x2 in each direction or 4 times the pixels).  So that means Nvidia’s Kal-El since from all accounts Tegra 2 can’t drive that display…  Awesome.

    Not that I’m any better, but on an editing note: premature spacing on “smartphone sand on tablet”

    1. Thanks. Funny thing is that the spellcheck didn’t catch that because clearly “sand” is a word. But when I fixed it, spellcheck flagged “smartphones” because apparently it doesn’t recognize the plural. 

    2. There’s a bit of a push for higher res screens as they can be easily adapted for 3D and isn’t just about improving screen quality.
