If the rumours are accurate, Samsung will beat Apple to a tablet with a Retina-like resolution display next year.
According to information on Boy Genius Report, Samsung is working on an 11.6-inch-screen Android tablet with a 2560x1600 resolution. Interestingly, the originator of the rumour is saying that the tablet won't be much bigger than the 10.1-inch model in market now, and that Samsung will shrink the size of the screen's bezel to accommodate the larger display size.
The tablet will apparently run on the Google Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) build of Android, and will feature Android Beam to share content with other NFC-enabled ICS Android devices. Under the hood, Samsung will use a dual-core 2GHz Exynos chipset.
Here's hoping we don't see a repeat of the legal back and forth that delayed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 so significantly this year. Samsung is expected to launch the new tablet at Mobile World Congress at the end of February next year, alongside the Galaxy S III.
