Samsung appears to be working on a tablet with an 11.8 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display. It’s called the P10 (or at least that’s its code-name), and The Verge spotted a mention of the upcoming tablet in a court document revealed as a result of Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung.

In other words, the latest battle in the patent wars has revealed a next-generation move in the display resolution wars.

Apple sort of kicked things off in that particular war when the company introduced the latest iPad with a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display. A couple of Android device makers have introduced 10.1 inch tablets with 1920 x 1200 pixel displays since then.

But Samsung’s P10 tablet would have an even higher resolution display — although it would also be a bit larger. That means it would have a pixel density of about 256 ppi. That’s not as sharp as an iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, but it doesn’t have to be since you tend to hold a tablet further from your eyes than a smartphone.
