There is a rumour in the tech world that Samsung Galaxy Tab with 11.6 inch screen will be launched very soon, may be within a few days. It is speculated that the tablet will be launched during the SXSW, which is the annual film, music, interactive conference and trade show which will be held in Austin, Texas from March 9 to March 18.
In reality there is no official announcement regarding the launch of the device. Samsung officials have said that this new tablet will be launched soon and one another source has said that the launch will be done in an event at Texas. So the only plausible conclusion that we can draw out from these statements is that the tablet will be in fact launched during the SXSW.
The specifications of this tablet are not yet confirmed officially, but from what we can make out so far, they seem very impressive and promising. The device is said to feature an 11.6 inch screen having a monstrous resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. If this is true then the effective pixel density will be very high and will be as high as the retina displays that are featured in Apples devices.
Since Apple uses this display as their main marketing tactic, it would get some serious competition from Samsung’s new device. So if the pricing of the device is very competitive and the device has some pretty amazing specs to go with this screen then it would be a very serious and threatening prospective for other tablets as well.
There is no exact word on the processor that Samsung is going to use in their latest tablet but according to previous speculations the device will come with an Exynos 5250 chipset. The CPU will be from the new generation of the power efficient 32nm type. It will be a dual core CPU that will pack a clock speed of about 2 GHz. This relatively higher clock speed will ensure fast execution of programs and applications. The power efficiency of the new generation CPU will allow for longer hours of operation.
This will undoubtedly come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
The specs of this device sound very interesting and are top of the game. So there is a small doubt whether this revolutionary product will be launched during a small event like this rather than in an extravagant press meeting dedicated for the product launch.
There is no word on the price tag of Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6 as for now.
