New 11.6 inch Samsung tablet with Android Ice Cream Sandwich coming at MWC 2012?
Since more and more smartphones with HD displays are being released, it makes sense for manufacturers to start making tablets with high pixel density screens, too.
We’ve heard more than once that Apple’s iPad 3 would come with a display featuring a 2048 x 1536 resolution, and now we’re hearing that Samsung is also preparing a relatively similar tablet.
According to BGR, Samsung’s new tablet will have a 11.6 inch screen with 2560 x 1600 pixels. Other features should include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a thin bezel (which will make the tablet only a bit larger than the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab), and a dual-core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor. Most likely, LTE connectivity will also be included (Samsung, Motorola and HTC have already introduced LTE tablets in various markets).

Reportedly, Samsung could announce the new 11.6 inch tablet at MWC 2012 in February. I’m curious to see if the new device will be called Galaxy Tab 11.6 or not (probably yes, since Samsung has no reason to change its tablet naming scheme).
