Samsung Working On New Tablet With High-Resolution Display
According to media reports, a new Samsung tablet could be released in February that consists of technology unseen in current tablets.
Rumors have come out that say Samsung has been working on a tablet with a thinner bezel, building on the work done on the company's televisions.BGR.com reported that Samsung will launch an 11.6-inch tablet running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich next year.
The same report also cited its unnamed source as saying that the new tablet is "barely larger" than its current tablet due to the fact that the slate will have a thinner bezel.
The new Samsung tablet will use a dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU clocked at 2 gigahertz. The tablet will also feature a high-resolution screen at 2560 x 1600 with a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Apple's rumored iPad 3 is said to have a screen with a resolution of 2048x1536, which is double the horizontal and vertical pixels of the current iPad 2.
Apple and Samsung have been intertwined in legal battles over both their smartphones and tablets.
The iPad maker successfully got Samsung's Galaxy Tab banned in Australia and some European countries earlier this year, but those bans have since been lifted.
