Samsung could be prepping dual-core 2GHz Galaxy Tab for MWC 2012

The rumored 11.6-inch tablet could sport a dual-core 2GHz CPU, 2560x1600 resolution display and Android 4.0 with a public reveal this coming February

Currently, Samsung’s expansive (and somewhat bewildering) lineup of Galaxy Tab tablets span sizes from 7-inch screens to 10.1-inch screens. It’s a large family to be sure, so chances are favorable that Samsung could be preparing yet another member in the Galaxy Tab series for a release this year.

According to, the South Korean manufacturer is about to reveal its newest and fastest Galaxy Tab yet. The source claims that the tablet could be larger than 10 inches and would feature a dual-core 2GHz Exynos CPU with an ultra-high display resolution of 2560x1600 pixels.

While a bit farfetched, the new rumors do fall in line with a previous rumor we reported early last month. Sources at the time believed that an 11.6-inch Galaxy Tab was already in the works with a 2560x1600 resolution screen and a 2GHz Exynos 5250 CPU. In fact, Samsung themselves had demoed a 2560x1600 resolution display last year at SID Display Week 2011. Indeed, as vague as they are, all speculations and rumors so far have lined up quite perfectly.

Hopefully, all will be revealed this February at this year’s Mobile World Conference.
