Samsung rumoured to be readying 12.2 and 10” tablets with 2560×1600 screens


With tablets of almost any size in the marketplace around the world, Samsung is now turning its attentions to Octa-core 12.2”r and Snapdragon 800-powered 10” rumored, both with 2560×1600 displays (same res as the Nexus 10),

Since the launch of the Nexus 10 last year, Samsung has focused mostly on mid-range products with, the recently-launched Galaxy Tab 3 line, for instance. But later in the year the company looks like it could be  pushing ahead with more high-end Android tablets, if new, leaked hardware details from the usually-reliable @evleaks are to be believed.


Samsung never one to shy away from bringing out devices to go up against Apple looks like this leak couls well be correct.

The productive Twitter leaker posted specs for two new high-end, high-res tablets. The first, “SM-P900” reportedly carries a 12.2-inch screen, an Exynos 5 Octa CPU, a 2560×1600-resolution display and a Wacom-based “S Pen” stylus. The second, “SM-P600,” is said to carry a Snapdragon 800 CPU and a 10-inch, 2560×1600 display.

The P900 would be the largest Android device from Samsung to date, and the inclusion of an S Pen suggests it might be branded as a Galaxy Note device — perhaps a Note 12.2. Meanwhile, the P600 could match the dimensions and display resolution of the Nexus 10, only with a speedier CPU.

There’s no word on when these new tablets might officially arrive, but the IFA is usually a pretty big show for Samsung, so we’ll keep an eye out in Berlin next month.
