Samsung tipped to release two new high resolution tablets with S-Pen support

If the 1280×800 or 1280×720 resolution of previous Galaxy Note devices from Samsung have been disappointing to you so far then things are set to get a whole lot better. According to a new tweet from @EvLeaks new 10″ and 12.2″ tablets with a 2560×1600 resolution are on their way and if the inclusion of S-Pen is any indicator they’ll be in the Galaxy Note line.

The model numbers line up with User Agent Profiles(UAProf) on the Samsung Mobile site for the SM-P600(10″) and the SM-P900(12.2″) show that both devices will be running Android 4.2 and being Samsung devices this will be with Touchwiz overlaid with S-Pen specific enhancements.

With the tablets running an Exynos 5 Octa (hopefully the newly announced 5420 with Mali-T628 GPU)- SM-P900 – and the Snapdragon 800 with Adreno 330 GPU – SM-P600 – there is going to be no shortage of computing power behind the devices.

While 10″ is a fairly well accepted tablet size, the 12.2″ screen size may put some users off, however with a 2560×1600 resolution and S-Pen support, the tablet could possibly do fairly well within graphic design circles which could utilise the high resolution tablets and screen real-estate to great effect.

They’re not for everyone at those sizes, but it will be interesting to see where these tablets will be priced in the Samsung range, a release for the devices has not been set but we could see something as early as the IFA conference in Germany but nothing is set in stone.

Would you purchase a high resolution Samsung tablet with S-Pen support? What would be your use case for it?

    Hmmm, s-pen digitiser resolution was the reason I have avoided dissing the Note 10′s 2010 era screen res as much as their other tablets.

    Here’s hoping this is the first of their line of tablets that’s not decidedly sub-par, and signals a tend where they start putting competitive tablets on the market.

    I hope they don’t destroy it by putting physical and capacitive buttons on it like the Tab 3 series.
