Leak reaffirms new Samsung tablets to provide 2560x1600 resolution, also Exynos 5 and Snapdragon 800 CPUs

Leak reaffirms new Samsung tablets to provide 2560x1600 resolution, also Exynos 5 and Snapdragon 800 CPUs
A tweet from the oft-reliable @evleaks revealed today that two new Samsung tablets are set to hit the scene, a 12.2-inch and 10.1-inch slab, each sporting 2560x1600 resolution.

The device noted as “SM-P900” will feature a 12.2-inch display and Exynos 5 octa-core CPU as well as an S-pen. The display will not break records in terms of pixels-per-square inch, but at 247ppi, you will not have any trouble making out any details while putting it to work.

The second device revealed as the “P-600” will go the Qualcomm route by way of a Snapdragon 800 processor and will also have a 2560x1600 display at 10-inches, good for an excellent 299ppi. There is no mention of an S-pen though.

We first caught sight of these two tablets over the past couple weeks, where UAProf details emerged.  There is a bit of conflict with what we knew then versus now however.  We reported about a couple weeks ago our first sighting of the SM-P900 and the screen resolution initially led us to believe it might have been a Galaxy Tab product.  We then saw new information only last week that steered us away from that assessment.  Today's information furthers that view.

So what can be made of these devices? Well, with the SM-P900 it is possible that we could see it end up as a Galaxy Note “12,” meant to compliment the large selection of Note products already available, the Galaxy Note II, the Note 8.0 and Note 10.1 tablets. While that is speculation, it is certainly not beyond Samsung to do such a thing given the number of products it already produces.  In addition, all the latest Note devices run on Exynos CPUs.

As for the P-600, it is packing the same resolution as the Nexus 10 and it is conceivable that this could be a run-up for the next Nexus 10 device. The current Nexus 10 runs a Samsung sourced Exynos CPU and if the new Nexus 7 was breaking any ground by making the switch from an NVIDIA chipset to Qualcomm, perhaps that plan will cross to other Nexus devices.  We shy away from the idea that it could be a new Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of such a significant specification jump in screen resolution and chosen chipset.  More will certainly be revealed as we get closer to a possible announcement about new Nexus hardware later this year.

yeah if its going to have the three button layout instead of just on screen buttons then u wouldnt bother with a 12" tab from Samsung

Samsung will have to cut the bezels to minimum on the larger slate. So I expect an elegant looking device

Most people actually like moderate bezels on tablets. It makes it easier to hold without touching the display.

Probably will have a beefier battery to back it up.

""In addition, all the Note devices run on Exynos CPUs.""" My US AT&T Galaxy Note (i717, and all the other NON international versions) begs to differ... Unless your talking about just the new release's, in which case you need to specify next time :P

You are indeed correct, and that has been so noted by adding the word "latest" to that sentence, "...all the latest Note..."

This time the E5420 A7s are clocked at 2.0Ghz instead of 1.2Ghz by Arm which led the octocore kinda fail. The A15 hopefully will clock at 1.6 or 2.0Ghz. And can be over clocked up to 2.5Ghz.... ®

Please stop this. You know nothing. It has absolutely nothing to do with the clock. It's more related to how CCI 400 and GTS works. I won'r even going to debate with you. You have absolutely no clue what you talking about.

THIS. Comment of the day. +1

Really all it is that the S600 is just an overclocked S4Pro by 490Ghz! It's a Apq8064T Apq- application CPU. The eXperia ArcS had this chip. The original had the Apq8064. S600 isn't a big improvement over the S4Pro. So now your saying it didn't make a big diffrene over clocking the CPU by 400+ GHz... The S2 to S3 made a big difference in speed. I felt the diffrence. Even over clocking the GPU on Mali400 to 650Mhz, which standard was 400Mhz made playing WildBloid made it much smoother. Riptide made graphics much clearer. I don't no what I'm talking about really... I tweak CPU and mess around with it buy changing voltage settings, increasing voltage on Rooted device. CPU Threshold up, setting CPU governor to performance makes the CPU idle state floating at 1.2Ghz always... Joker ®

Yep, you just proved you have no clue. By overclocking, you're just killing your phone. Only a clueless person that doesn't use any heavy app would overclock today's chips. As for the rest on why you have no clue, I expect rd_nest to tell you, since he is the one deserving of ending this discussion. As for the "tweaks" that you do, I am sure you're following those noob guides all over the interwebz.

No I'm a power user who prefers faster and super zippy transition and loading time. I don't like buttery smooth operation! I like power like BmwM3 Intel i7 on Turbo mode. You go enjoy your 2.0 litre engine with 150Bhp while i left cruise at 380Bhp with 4.0 engines. So your telling me you prefer average things in life... Well what do you expect from average joes.. So you don't like or want to buy Armani Prada D&g Guuci Paul Smith You buy cheap stuffs from primark suits you ®

The A7 cores in the 5420 are clocked at 1.3 GHz, not 2.0.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

You can, those A7 can be over clocked to 2.0Ghz when Rooted! E5420 A15s are at 1.8 A7s are at 1.3 I assume? ®

43. Berzerk000

Posts: 4275; Member since: Jun 26, 2011

At 2.0 GHz, that would completely negate the effect of having those A7 cores, which is to have better battery life.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

These are low powerd A7s not A8 or A9s These A7s are really battery efficient. ®

49. Berzerk000

Posts: 4275; Member since: Jun 26, 2011

I understand that, but at 2.0 GHz not even the A7 cores can be efficient enough to be used alongside A15.

Too bad they always manage to make it lag.

You shouldn't have to if you want a smooth experience. You should root if you want a different experience, not so you can get a lag-free one...

No Android flagship from Q4 2012 and later has experienced lag. The "stutter" on the GS4 is due to a buggy build of TW which was updated. S4 Pro, S600 and Exynos 5410 make phones fly.

Nexus 4 here with a custom rom and calibrated display and its smooth as can be, stock is just as smooth.

Perhaps, but not the Verizon version of the S4. Knowing Verizon, I wouldn't be surprised if they refused to roll out even a simple update like that.

34. Berzerk000

Touchwiz on the GS4 didn't lag because it was buggy, it lagged because it was bloated. Samsung packed in so many half baked features that the system couldn't handle it. It still isn't lag free even after the updates, at least on the Snapdragon version.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Not the system the CPU struggled to keep up even at 1.9! Why blame Android or Samsung...? ®

41. Berzerk000

Posts: 4275; Member since: Jun 26, 2011

Because it is Samsung's fault. The Optimus G Pro and HTC One have the same CPU but at lower clock speeds (lower clocked GPU as well) and DDR2 memory (compared to DDR3 on the GS4) and run perfectly. The Galaxy S4 Google Edition runs perfectly as well. The problem is Touchwiz; not Android, and not the Snapdragon 600.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Berzerk all the features on the S4 that is exclusive for a weak CPU that Samsung used was a big mistake. The S800 has the power to push all those extra features. Now imagine live wallpapers were active along with 8widgets it would lag even more. What Android or S4 needs is 6 or 8 cores now! S600 is a weak CPU for a heavy hungry hog resources like Android. It's a full OS. There isn't a single device out there that that has a 4xA15 device? Those A15s will revolutionize mobile industry along with Tegra4. Yes those were designed for tablets but if equipped with 3000 + mah battery I don't see a problem. A15 and Bay trail chips are on par! These are pure raw power SOCs... ®

Android is not the problem, TROLL. It's Samsung. The Snapdragon 600 is a very capable CPU that can push Android on a 1080p display perfectly, it's just Samsung did a half-ass job at optimizing it and bloated the system with their gimmicky features. A15 power is NOT NEEDED, all that's needed is optimized software, and then we can have all day battery life and flawless operation of our products. But Samsung took a step backwards and completely messed up the GS4 with bloated software.
