The South Korean conglomerate may be about to one-up Apple in its own game by releasing a new Galaxy Tab tablet with an ultra-high resolution screen akin to Apple’s “Retina” display.

The rumor is coming straight off of sources close to BGR, who claim that Samsung will launch a high-end 11.6-inch tablet, called the (you guessed it) Galaxy Tab 11.6. In addition to breaking the 10.1-inch screen “barrier”, the tablet is expected to have a screen resolution of 2560x1600 pixels. Although this rumored resolution doesn’t exactly break the 300 ppi barrier like the iPhone 4, it does still offer a density of 260 ppi, which would be quite high for tablets.

For its internals, the Galaxy Tab 11.6 may run on Samsung’s own dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU at a whopping 2GHz. The source also mentions a wireless docking mode for streaming and gaming on HDTVs.

While we can’t confirm the new tablet’s existence, Samsung does indeed have a 2560x1600 resolution panel in the works as shown in SID Display Week 2011. The company, however, has yet to publicly announce any products that would make use of the technology.

A release date for the supposed Galaxy tab 11.6 is unknown at this time.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
