There’s a new 2560 x 1600 tablet in Samsung’s future
Samsung’s UAProf site revealed that a new high-end tablet with a 2560 x 1600 display is in the works from the Korean giant. The device may be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus.
There are several high-resolution Android tablets on the market, with another bunch about to hit the stores in the next few months. Samsung’s own Nexus 10 has opened the road for crazy high pixel densities, and it looks that the Korean manufacturer will soon unleash another tablet with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display.
The device codenamed SM-P900 was spotted on a Samsung site that lists User Agent Profiles, commonly shortened UAProf, which are files that mobile devices refer to in order to identify themselves to web servers. The Japanese tech blog RBMen identified three variants of the SM-P900, corresponding to Samsung’s typical SKUs: SM-P900 – 3G, SM-P901 – Wi-Fi, and SM-P905 – LTE.
According to the leak purveyors at Sam Mobile, the SM-P900 tablet may be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus. Though the Galaxy Note 10.1 is due for a refresh, the “P” letter in the code suggests that the SM-P900 won’t feature an S Pen stylus. Besides the screen resolution, the UAProf files reveal few other details about the mystery device. The processor will be clocked at 1.4GHz, while the operating system is marked as Android 4.2.2.
The best opportunity to launch this new Galaxy Tab 3 Plus would be IFA 2013 in September, though recently Samsung has announced several devices outside of events. For now, we know very little about this new device, but we’ll definitely keep an eye out for it.
