Despite Samsung’s staggering success in the smartphone market, I must admit we’re all begging for that same level of “wow” on their line of tablets. Devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 are truly beautiful works of art, but the love sadly ends once you turn it on and get a feel for how sluggish it is. The good thing is that Samsung is anything but slow at pushing newer and better hardware, and such is the case with a mysterious new Samsung tablet that just reached the FCC.
Code name P10, this oddly unannounced tablet was one of the major leaks that have been roaming around the Apple vs. Samsung trial. It’ll sport an 11.8-inch display, but what makes this screen special is that it’ll have a 2560×1600 WQXGA resolution. That not only sets it in Retina Display territory, but it also requires a Samsung Exynos Dual 5 processor to power it, so I guess my wishful thinking is coming true this year after all. Sadly, aside from its native 16GB of storage and the usual antennas to be supported, not much more is still known from this device.
With IFA around the corner and even a Samsung event next week on August 15th that talks about a note device, we could be in for a pleasant surprise.
