Samsung reportedly working on 2560x1600 tablet

Written by



11.6-inch behemoth


Just weeks after Samsung introduced the world’s first quad-core tablet it seems bent or raising the bar even further.

The Korean giant is reportedly developing an 11.6-inch tablet that could even make the brand new Transformer Prime cry uncle. The contraption is said to feature a 2560x1600 screen, with a pixel density of about 260, which is pretty close to Apple’s Retina screen. Mind you, while some phones feature higher densities, no other tablet even comes close.

The tablet is based on Samsung’s Exynos  SoC, reportedly running at 2GHz. There’s no word on the exact model of the chip, but we are probably looking at the A15-based Exynos 5250. The tablet will also feature Beam technology and, of course, it will run Android 4.0.

The rumoured launch date is February.

Well, I would like something like that on an ultrabook/laptop. Tablet should be somewhere around 1600x900 would be enough.

And I am working to replace those 10 Volts caps on my Samsung TV's 12 Volts board.

Will they include magnifier with that tablet,2560x1600 on 11 inch screen is overkill by far...

I don't care for tablets but I like the higher resolution screen. I hope they will make it soon into ultrabooks and desktops.

tablets are a bit of a play toy at the moment. "mines bigger than yours"

Wow, you serious? Tablets are in the process of replacing ebook readers. In fact 2560x1600 -even- is not big enough of a resolution since you can still make out the individual pixels that create the scene (barely but still) leading to straining after long hours of reading...

Ultrabooks on the other hand can have little use of anything above 1080p since there is NO DIFFERENCE given how far away one stands from the screen in a laptop (compared to a tablet).

Or you could get a e-reader for about $700 dollars cheaper than this beast will be. Either that or your vision is crazy good, however reading on a tablet should take care of that...

Battery life+screen+wei ght will always give e-readers the advantage for just reading.

Like I said ... "we're not there yet" and we'll never be if we won't make steps towards that direction.

Eventually tablets would be a *lot* better readers than regular e-readers *because* of their capacity to go on the web properly (searching for papers, reading articles), reading is not just about books. Unlike most of the people in this thread I welcome this development, finally tablets are starting to become useful, 'till now they were mere toys...

The reason I don't have a tablet yet is because I'm waiting for a 1080p one.
