Rumoured Samsung tablets said to include 2560×1600 displays

Samsung’s Nexus 10 is the only Android tablet from the company to feature a 2560×1600 resolution so far, but the South Korean manufacturer may be working on some additional tablets with the same high-resolution display. Twitter tipster @evleaks served up the details over the weekend, saying that Samsung is working on two tablets that look to have high-end specs to go with the impressive display resolution.

The first tablet is known as the SM-P900, with @evleaks suggesting that the device will sport an unconventional 12.2-inch 2560×160 display. The tablet will also be powered by Samsung’s octo-core Exynos 5 processor and include an S-Pen stylus, so it sounds like the company will be positioning this as a high-end device.

It isn’t the only high-res tablet that Samsung is working on, though. @evleaks also says that the SM-P600 is in the pipeline. That model will apparently have a smaller 10-inch 2560×1600 display, and be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor instead of Samsung’s own silicon. There’s no mention of stylus support, however, so this could be a standard Galaxy Tab, with the P900 model falling under the company’s Note branding.

There isn’t any indication as to when Samsung will announce these two new tablets, but the company will be making an appearance at IFA 2013, scheduled to take place in September. That would be a good time to announce any new products, with recent rumours also indicating that the Galaxy Note 3 will make an appearance at the event.
