Is Dell planning a successor to the Streak?

The 5-inch Opus One likely to be the next big thing by Dell

Dell may have something big on the platter and this time as well, the focus will be on the tablet market. This comes after a lot of praise has been hogged by the 7-inch looking glass and the 10-inch tablet expected next year. The latest is that according to tip off’s, it is being speculated that the company could be planning a successor to the 5-inch Streak.

The Opus One will, if sources are to be believed, will feature a 5-inch screen, sport a resolution of 1,280x800px, i.e. higher than its predecessor which had just a 800x480px display. It will allow to natively play back high-definition 720p content. Also estimates predict a density of about 310ppi, compared to the Retina Display's 326ppi. It is being presumed that processing would be powered by a dual-core ARM SoC with a 1.2GHz clock-speed, however the 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon was suggested as a prime candidate, especially since the Streak uses an earlier chip in the same family.

All the above specs are mere estimates and are not as yet supported by official confirmation by Dell, it is very possible that the Opus One is just a prototype and may see many significant changes to its internals, if it is released that is.
