Must have moar tablets, says Samsung. Two brand new tabs coming?
Just when we thought that Samsung has exhausted its tablet quota for the year, the company is now rumored to be bringing out a couple of unheard of Android tablets into the market as early as June. The source of the rumor was an internal document coming all the way from la France that outlines the Korean company’s Smart TV line, with some side information that details the compatibility of the Smart View app for Samsung’s phones and tablets.
As you can see on the diagram, there are two new Samsung tablet models listed there, the Espresso 10 and Espresso 7, along with their expected release date. The Samsung Espresso 10 apparently will come out in June, while the Espresso 7’s release date status is still TBC. There’s no other information given except that the two Espresso tablets will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Since Samsung hasn’t really thrown us any bones, we can only speculate about what the Samsung Espresso tablets will be packing inside. It’s possible that these are two new high-end tablets that are still missing from Samsung’s roster this year. If that’s the case, then they probably will be powered by the quad-core Exynos chip that Samsung is still developing. They may also come with a higher screen resolution than HD.
Let’s not discount the possibility that the Espresso might be a codename for the Galaxy Tab 2 tablets in France. We’re not so sure about this one, because espresso is more of an Italian thing than French. Unless you mix it with milk, which technically makes it a café au lait. Anyway, this could also be the work of someone who has too much free time on their hands. So until there’s more information about these supposed Samsung Espresso tablets, we suggest you focus your attention more on news like the price cut on Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 or the delayed Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.
