13.3″ Samsung tablet in the works, leak reveals
Samsung has some very good news for you if for some reason you consider even the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 tablet to be too small for your needs (whatever those may be).
The 12.2-inch model that was unveiled in January currently sits alone on top of the company’s Tab roster, being the flagship in size. But apparently that’s set to change soon. According to an “inside contact” who spoke to GSM Arena, Samsung is working on an even bigger tablet, one that will come with a 13.3-inch display.
Its resolution will be the same 2,560×1,600 employed across the whole Galaxy Tab Pro line. Though despite it being the highest resolution currently available in the mobile world, at that huge size it allows for a pixel density of just 227 ppi. For comparison, the 8.4-inch Tab Pro with the same screen resolution comes with a density of 359 ppi.
The aforementioned source leaked the table you can see above, in which the upcoming Galaxy Tab S tablets (with AMOLED touchscreens) get mentioned too – although we already knew that they were in the works, and their screen sizes, and their resolutions.
The 13.3-inch tablet will go with an LCD panel, not AMOLED, probably because Samsung hasn’t yet been able to reliably produce AMOLED displays of this size. And even if it could, they may be too expensive.
The 13-inch Galaxy Tab could be the first Samsung Android tablet to break (or get dangerously close to) the $1,000 threshold, at least in one variation – the one with the most storage and built-in 4G LTE connectivity.
The new tablet should run Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s modifications plastered on top of it.
