Samsung apparently has a large 10.1-inch tablet with a high-resolution display in the works and the device's purported specs have now leaked online.
While the company has been among the first OEMs to offer tablets with high-resolution displays, such as the Google Nexus 10, it has only used LCD panels so far. According to new information, however, things may be about to change soon, as a Samsung SM-T800 tablet has reportedly been spotted with a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. This would mark a notable improvement over the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (pictured above), for instance.
According to a new exclusive report from SamMobile, the Samsung SM-T800 is the Wi-Fi-only model of the yet-to-be-announced slate. The publication claims that Samsung is planning to launch different versions of the tablet, with model numbers SM-T801 and SM-T805, which should be for the HSPA+ and the LTE variants.
SamMobile has apparently obtained the entire spec sheet of this Wi-Fi-only SM-T800 model and has shared its exclusive scoop with the world. According to this leak, the upcoming tablet will rock the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box and could also sport features such as Ultra Power Saving Mode.
Other purported specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which will most likely be the Snapdragon 801. Unlike other high-end Samsung tablets however, it seems that this offering will only pack 2GB of RAM. In terms of internal storage capacity, Samsung will reportedly offer 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB configurations, all with microSD card support for additional memory. The slate will also feature an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter, and a large 7,900 mAh battery.
SamMobile further notes that Samsung could launch an Exynos-powered model as well in some markets, as benchmarks have revealed that the Wi-Fi-only model would come with a Snapdragon chipset and the LTE version would pack an Exynos model. The publication suspects this may be an error, which should clear out as the device gets closer to its official debut. Further bolstering this theory is the fact that the benchmark in question is no longer available (it was previously listed here).
As always with leaks and speculation, however, keep in mind that nothing is official at this point and it is highly advisable to take this news with a grain of salt. If SamMobile proves to be accurate, we should learn more about Samsung's upcoming 10.5-inch tablet with a 2K AMOLED display soon enough.
