Samsung Plans to Announce the Next-Gen Tablet at MWC?
Samsung seems to be gearing itself up for a new tablet PC during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2012. This new slate, however, will not be the rumored Samsung Galaxy S III, whose launch at the trade fair is allegedly cancelled.
In lieu of the rumored smartphone, however, Samsung expects to debut some new tablets. For instance, there might be a new Samsung Galaxy Tab which runs on the Samsung Exynos 5250 processor. This new chip, which was announced last year, is the company’s first Cortex-ARM 15 SoC. The Exynos 5250 has a 32 nm process and a clock speed of 2 GHz. Said specifications are expected to ensure at least two times faster computing experience, about 24 hours of battery life, five times horsepower graphics-wise, and more memory bandwidth at 12.8GB.
The next-generation Samsung Galaxy Tab will likely have a display that measures more than 10 inches and have a WXQGA screen with a 2560 x 1600 pixel display resolution, made possible, of course, also with the Exynos 5250 processor. It is also expected that it will run on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Until the rumored launch, however, Samsung is limiting the information it releases on the new slate, and was only quoted to having said that it will have some “interesting stuff” at the trade show.
