Samsung’s 12-inch 4K Prototype Tablet Leaked: A 'Potentially Revolutionary' Device in the Making

By Anuj

From making tablets for kids to professional slates for business community, Samsung has constantly been the trendsetter. As we noted earlier, the South Korean giant has confirmed its plans to introduce a new series of Galaxy Tab S family on June 12 in New York.

However, the later end of the year should be even more exciting, as Samsung could bring its first ever 4K resolution tablet into global market.


At CES 2014, Panasonic launched its Toughpad 4K UT-MA6 tablet, whose 20-inch screen sports a resolution of 3840 x 2560 pixels. After Panasonic, now it's Samsung's turn to introduce a 4K ready tablet.

Samsung’s 12-inch 4K Prototype Tablet Leaked [ Report]

Tech Radar is reporting that they have caught a 12-inch Samsung-made reference tablet showcasing LTE Broadcast capabilities on a 4K display at the Roland Garros venue, where the French Open is currently taking place.

It's a 12-inch UHD prototype tablet with look and feel of Samsung's traditionally designed slates. In a true fashion it has a capacitive touch buttons and the home-button beneath the display.

The report further claims the tablet currently houses a Snapdragon 801 processor under the hood. However, the device might launch with a more powerful Snapdragon 805 SoC, when commercially available.

During a Qualcomm event in Paris the firm's Senior VP of Product Management, Raj Talluri apparently told Tech Radar that 4K "tablets would be with us before the year is out".

This would mean that Samsung is very well thinking about launching a 4k ready 12-inch tablet, although there may be no guarantee to see the device sometime later this year.

Recent rumors have suggested that Apple is looking into a 12.9-inch iPad that could act as a hybrid between a laptop and a tablet. The device is apparently to get launched in two different resolutions: one with a 2K display and the other with a 4K resolution. The current iPad Air model offers a 2048 x 1536 display.
