Is Samsung prepping a new full HD Galaxy Tab for MWC 2013?

January 18, 2013

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab

Back when Android smartphones were seemingly all you can get in the market, Samsung released its first ever tablet in the latter part of 2010, the 7-inch Froyo-powered Galaxy Tab. The original Tab didn’t exactly set the world alight, but it did pave the way for the 7.7-inch, 8.9-inch, and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab variants, as well as others.

We told you yesterday that we might see a device with an 8-inch form factor from Samsung being introduced at MWC 2013, though it’s one that will sport the Galaxy Note moniker. Apparently, it won’t be the only tablet offering that we’ll see from Sammy come February.

Citing an unnamed source, ETNews — a South Korean news outlet — said that Samsung is going to introduce the next generation Galaxy Tab, one that will sport a full HD display. Unfortunately, that’s as far as can we make out from the report, so we don’t have the full specs just yet.

However, we won’t be surprised if it comes with similar specs and features as the Google Nexus 10, which — in case you’ve forgotten — is manufactured by Samsung.

We should be hearing more details in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted.

    I sincerely hope it won’t be a strictly full HD screen (1920X1080) because 16/9 ration is NOT suited for tablets. It’d better feature a 16/10 screen with 1920X1200 or even 2560X1600 resolution (like the Nexus 10’s).

      i think this article is a following-up on the 8″ tablet…if so, its very unlikely it will be 2560×1600 since that is a very high ppi. 1920×1200 is more logical but it would be attractive to all if they release a non-HD & HD side-by-side.

        Yes of course, 2560X1600 would be overkill for an eighter (as much as 1980X1080 is for phones !) but the articles relates the rumour of a 8″ + another tablet.

          1920*x1080 is staying.

            And what a shame for tablets… (16/9 is ok for phones though)

    i sell my nexus 10 because the battery brain on less than 7 h regular and lack of the space and i have the 32gb is too limited. I really want a tab3 10.1 whit the same screen of the nexus and the Equinox 5 Octa and Sd up to 64gb

    If the new hd Samsung tablet has an sd card – Samsung please take my money.

    I’m very interested in it, mainly because I believe 8″ is a very good comfortable size.
