Android 4.0 Galaxy Tab May Come in February
Samsung may not be announcing the Galaxy S III within the next few months. However, the company is rumored to announced the new Galaxy Tab that’s powered by a dual-core 2 GHz Exynos 5250 processor as well as Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
The rumor is based on a prototype seen at the CES 2012. That prototype was apparently running that 2GHz Exynos processor along with Ice Cream Sandwich. So, if that prototype was at CES, it’s probably ready to make its debut and MWC seems like the place where Samsung would make such an announcement.
The rest of the possible specs is still a mystery although it appears that it might feature a display bigger than 10 inches with WXQGA (2560×1600) resolution. If this are correct, this will be the biggest tablet that Samsung has offered to date.
As of now, the company currently offers tablets with displays that measure in at 10.1, 8.2 and 7.7 inches. It’s unclear how much bigger the display on the new device will be.
While everything here should be taken with a grain of salt, the fact that Samsung already has all of the pieces working together, it’s not entirely out of the question.
In addition, Samsung needs to make some sort of a splash at MWC now that the Galaxy S III won’t be arriving, a new tablet with the company’s new processor is a good alternative.
