Samsung prepping to release an 11.8" high-resolution tablet, court filings reveal

Samsung prepping to release an 11.8
Remember that 11.8" 2560x1600 pixels HD PLS- LCD display panel Samsung demonstrated for us this January at CES with a 2GHz Exynos 5250 Cortex-A15 processor board attached to power it that you see in the thumb on the left?

Well, this thing, as we easily guessed back then, is going into a tablet pretty soon, court documents from the Apple-Samsung trial reveal. The high-res Samsung tablet is codenamed P10, and slated for release some time in 2012.

It seems that the plans were put on hold, though, and we'd wager to guess that Samsung has been hesitant to release a specs-smasher not because of manufacturing issues, as it certainly has the engineering prowess, but because of the ongoing litigation with Apple, where its Galaxy Tab series are front and center.

Thus, if the leaked roadmap in the court filings is any indication, we just might see a 11.8" WQXGA tablet from Samsung this year, provided that it doesn't think Apple might wage injunction claims against it, comparing it with the new iPad's "Resolutionary" display. The larger size might very well be an insurance against such possibility.

In any case, we cross fingers for a larger, 256ppi pixel density screen, powered by the 2GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 with ARM Mali-604 graphics tasked to fill all those pixels. This might be just what the doctor ordered for many big-screen lovers to consider a tablet before a smaller laptop. Samsung did it with the Note, so we are very curious about the market reception of such an 11.8 slate now.

this. is wonderful.

but it's too big though. 10.1 is hard to carry already. I wish it was 8.9...

and had a 7" brother with phone capabilities. would be nice. :)

May actually be the first tablet other than the iPad and Kindle Fire that gains same serious market share. But there is that "one size cant fit all"-argument - the iPads 3:4 9.7-inch and the 7-inch form-factor are still optimal for me.

But Android-tablets other than the Nexus 7 and Asus Transformer-line still suck and there is Windows 8 coming. Tremble in fear, Fandroids ;).
(An interesting article about the (un)importance of the tablet market for Android, just add an "w" at the very beginning:

tbh i find anything above 1080 (or 1200) p a bit too...hard to adjust to? My 1080p screen on 24" is fine, why would I need more than that on an ever smaller screen. Plus, 1080p movies would be much better to scale on a 1080p tablet.

But its nice to know the technology is there now! :)

Maybe we will see forward to 1600p-film industry, who knows.

I predict not for another couple years. 1080p is just becoming pretty standard, plus blu ray discs might not even be able to handle that much information

Bluray disc can handle the increase. Most movies I see are around 16 GB to 28 GB per disc. DL layer Bluray can hold up to 50 GB per disc. However alot of the space is filled with uncompressed audio tracks. Loose the multipule language tracks and you could shave another 4 to 5 GBs off each disc.
