12.2-inch SM-P900 and 10.1-inch SM-P600 Samsung Android tablets to pack 2560 x 1600 displays, report says

by: Chris SmithJuly 28, 2013


Samsung is apparently working on a couple of tablets, both said to offer 2560 x 1600 resolution displays.

Renown leakster @evleaks apparently can offer some details about these upcoming products: the 12.2-inch SM-P900 tablet, and the 10.1-inch SM-P600 model:

Naturally, nothing is official just yet, but considering his mostly-accurate track record in the mobile leaks department, we’d tend to trust him with such information.

While official product names are not provided, the SM-P900 is said to pack an Exynos 5 Octa processor (maybe the new version?) and S Pen functionality, a feature that suggest we’re may be looking at a new member of the Note family.

The only other characteristic mentioned for the SM-P600 in addition to screen size and resolution is processor, with @evleaks saying the device will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.

Will this be the new Nexus 10? It’s too early to speculate on that, but we will remind you that Google has apparently confirmed that a Samsung-made Nexus 10 is in the works.

Interestingly, Zauba – a website where we’ve seen alleged shipment data for R&D Galaxy Note 3 versions and Samsung’s first smartwatch – also mentions a SM-P905 version of the 12.2-inch tablet (the same one we’ve seen in previous reports), but the SM-P600 can’t be found on the same site.

Moreover, PhoneDog points out that both devices have also been spotted in User Agent Profiles on Samsung’s website, which reveal that both tablets will have a 2560 x 1600 resolution and run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

This isn’t the first time we hear that Samsung plans to launch more tablets packing a high-resolution display, including a device with a screen bigger than 10 inches.

The first-gen Nexus 10 tablet also comes with a 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 resolution.

    i really hope for more hybrids like the ativ q with dual os or s pen, samsung’s really doing great atm with tablets

    • Ivan Myring

      Can’t be because they have ARM CPUS

      • Andreas Larsson

        What? Are you retarded? Why can’t they make more hybrids? Have they lost the technology or what?

        • Ivan Myring

          No, I thought he meant make these devices (the ones in the article) hybrids. This would mean windows which wouldn’t work on an ARM SoC (unless you used rt). Or implementing two cpus/SoCs, which would be a waste of space, given that has well and clover/bay trail give good battery life.
          Also, no need to be offensive. Cunt

          • Andreas Larsson

            Haha sry for beeing offensive, but really? He said more hybrids LIKE ativ q in the comment :p and given your response it seemed a little dim-witted :p

          • Ivan Myring

            Yeah I know. I was in a hurry and didn’t read it properly

          • Andreas Larsson

            ^^ sry for my harsh jargon, did really not mean to insult you. Kinda figured u missed something in his comment and took the opportunity ;) mostly for my own amusement because I’m bored :p

      I want a nexus 12 inch tablet that when connected to a sturdy keyboard dock can switch seamlessly between Android and Chrome OS depending on your needs. I bet you Google’s going to offer that soon to manufacturers looking for touch-screen hybrid solutions.

      • Hue

        @Alex Yes that would be awesome. And yes, I agree Google is already working on that as we speak haha.

  • Ivan Myring

    Note 12!
    Hopefully some indication of the Note 3 CPU.

  • HitokiriX

    Why couldn’t the note 8.0 have had a better display…

    • I had the chance to check note8 at our local store. It was a pleasing experience. For android tablets I believe it is the ideal size.

      I hope a windows convertible design of this size will be introduced soon. Should be fullHD, 3G/4G, S-pen/stylus, dual harddisk [SSD at the screen side, 1TB HD at the keyboard side], battery to be divided at the screen side and keyboard side, etc…..

      • Cal Rankin

        certainly a good idea. Hoping for one of those fancy haswell chips.

        Personally, I’d like a hybrid tablet that was able to use two processors to run Windows. Imagine if Windows 8 was stored in the SSD on the tablet with a lower-end Intel chip, but when docked, you have the option for Windows to run from a more powerful Core i5 or i7 processor in the dock. Ideally, this could be done without rebooting, since some computers run on dual processors. However, this would be tricky to pull off, but I would be very satisfied if someone could pull it off.

        • As I understand haswell is very capable to do the job you want without considering a double processor option. As I understand haswell chips operate without cooling fans even and is 50% more battery efficient.
          My obsession now is to own a beautiful/ powerful/ cute 8″-10″/ super high tech windows tablet. Of course it should be fullHD, bitlocker enabled.

          • Cal Rankin

            Yeah, but as people have discovered, Windows 8 is not very multiboot-friendly.

  • Nitin

    But if it has a S pen then its a device of note family… then why its name is starting from P. Like Note 10.1 its N-8000…. likewise note 2.

  • Leo Kanellopoulos

    if this is true i will be so happy! my nexus 10 is an awesome tablet but a pen was missing. i use an adonit pen but its not the same it could be with a pen digitizer! if this is a new nexus devices i would be getting it the first day!

  • Cal Rankin

    Hopefully this will have the ability to run any two apps side-by-side, especially with that resolution and CPU. Admittedly, the GPU would have to be pretty good, but that would be the ideal work tablet, especially if any browser could be run in split-screen.

    The only problem I see is that these new Note tablets will have those physical buttons. Sorry, but bigger tablets are much nicer with soft keys. That was why Goggle added the soft keys into Honeycomb, because onscreen keys are easier to use on a bigger screen.

  • kascollet

    Just what I said earlier :
    Samsung now has two high-res capable SoCs and boy are they gonna use them !

  • Alberto Bonsanto

    I bet that their prices will be over $800

  • Magnetic1

    I think a 12 inch and 500 grams will be really awesome. And it will be fast.

  • Locutus

    Spec wise they are much better than the Galaxy tab range. I think the P900 will most likely be part of the Galaxy Note range.

  • mrjayviper

    my tf700 replacement!

  • Anonemous

    Not gonna touch it. Closed source exynos = you are on Samsung’s leash for updates until they drop support for you, and probably not customize friendly at all (e.g. CM)

  • Bullydogger

    Ill be buying the 12 incher that’s for sure!!

  • Jshdajhd Sdjhskadhqw

    When will be released?
