According to a rumour-based report over at Android and Me, Samsung might be launching a tablet to blow the rest out of the water at Mobile World Congress next month. The author of the report, Taylor Wimberly, says that he saw the device with his own eyes and camera at a special Samsung event at CES, but was told to remove photos of the device from his camera after the event.
Wimberly says that the tablet has a display larger than 10-inches and is powered by one of Samsung’s new CPUs, the Exynos 5250, which is dual-core and clocked at 2GHz. It’s also based off ARM’s Cortex-A15 core which offers 1.5x the processing power and 4x the graphics power performance over the previous generation Cortex-A9. The display is said to have a resolution of 2560×1600 which is also the maximum resolution the chip can output. It’s expected that the size of the display will be 11.6-inch because 1) that’s been reported as rumour on site for months. 2) It’s the logical next step — anything larger than that will be too large. Oh yeah, it’ll be running Android 4.0 as well.
Perhaps Samsung will be making a big deal out of this to make up for the lack of a certain much-anticipated smartphone.
