Legit picture of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6? Decide for yourself

March 24, 2012

The folks at Android and Me have made an interesting discovery that seems to lend credibility to the rumored existence of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6. A purported picture of the supersized tablet was spotted, of all places, on the Exynos product page of the company’s website.

To make it clear, there’s no marking whatsoever that gives out the picture as the mysterious Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6. What the picture does show is a slightly bigger looking Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with minor design differences. Of course, we shouldn’t always take things at face value.

Prior to the Mobile World Congress in February, the air was thick with rumors about Samsung releasing details of a certain Galaxy Tab with WXQGA resolution and a dual-core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor. Do you see the connection now? The picture was found in the product page that details the Exynos 5250 processor.

On an unrelated note, one oversized Android tablet that’s definitely been seen and touched is the Toshiba AT330, with its gargantuan 13.3 inch display and 1920 x 1200 resolution. Still in prototype, the Toshiba AT330 packs Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 32GB storage, a regular SD card slot, and Ice Cream Sandwich.

This gives some indication that manufacturers will be more creative with the dimensions of the Android tablets they release, perhaps forced by the over saturated market in the sub 10-inch tablets category. It wouldn’t be too much of as stretch to think that Samsung is readying a tablet that can match or surpass the resolution of the new iPad and one up it even more by making it 11.6-inch in size.

Plus, we think it’ll be a good exercise for the hands.

    Why do people buy tablets….. If you use Android phones and buy a android Tablet that just makes no sense. If u use android and buy a iPad or have a iPhone and have a android tablet that would make sense. But still I think tablets are dumb

      Because a tablet is a productivity tool, communication device, entertainment centre, mobile storage device etc,. rolled into a highly portable package. The small screen size of a phone restricts the utility of some apps, some things are just better and more usable with a larger screen. There are apps I use on my Tab that I couldn’t possibly use effectively on my phone. i.e. Photoshop and similar, just look for tablet apps on Google Play or the App Store.

      Only thing that doesn’t make sense here is your post I’m sorry to say, you really need to try a tablet before making sweeping statements like “tablets are dumb”. Tens of millions of people worldwide would disagree with your statement. Get yourself into a demo store, pick a few up and use them, you’ll soon realise the benefit.

    I am surprised that no one has pointed out that this particular tablet has forward mounted speakers. That is the one thing I hate about all current tablet designs, they all have their speakers either on the sides or the back. Either way though, they are not pointed at the user like they should be. I hope this catches on when this launches (if it launches).
