With the Samsung/Apple trial well underway, court documents have been unearthed indicating that Samsung may be hard at work on a new, high-resolution tablet. The Verge found references in documents made public in the California trial to a device dubbed the "P10," which would apparently incorporate a 11.8-inch, WQXGA (2560 x 1600) display, in addition to 4G LTE connectivity. If accurate, those numbers would equate to a pixel density of around 256ppi, all but matching the new IPad's 264ppi. The news follows pre-MWC rumors that such a device was being developed by the Korean manufacturer.
The prospect of an Android tablet with such a high-resolution display may be tantalizing, but let's remember that plans often change over time, and there's no telling exactly how this "P10" might have been translated into an actual product. Regardless, with the IFA show in Berlin just a month away, we'll be keeping crossing our fingers and hoping this mysterious Galaxy Tab 11.8 appears sooner rather than later.
