Samsung Galaxy Note 2 10.1 could have Nexus 10 Super PLS display
Samsung is preparing more Galaxy tablet devices with leaks suggesting a Galaxy Note 10.1 successor using the Nexus 10's Super PLS screen
More details have crept out of the woodwork regarding Samsung’s next generation of Galaxy tablets. The latest info suggests we might see a Super PLS 300ppi display, as found on the Samsung-made Nexus 10, appearing on a Galaxy Note 10.1 successor.
User Agent profiles have appeared online along with AnTuTu benchmarks for a GT-P8200 device with a 2560x1600 pixel resolution display, just like that of the Nexus 10.
The benchmarks show a 1.7GHz processor and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean which also support the Nexus 10 spec line-up and would imply an Exynos 5250 dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 chip.
It’s normally not too difficult to figure out new Samsung products based on their code numbers as the naming convention is fairly consistent from one model to the next.
However, there is no P-8100 device for the P-8200 to succeed.
It can’t be the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 because an accompanying model already appears to have that covered: the GT-P5200 following on from the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with its P-5100 designation and identical resolution display.
So, that would mean that the P-8200 may be the successor to the N-8000, which is the Galaxy Note 10.1.
Samsung is already known to be bringing an 8.0-inch Galaxy Note tablet to MWC at the end of February. It is possible that a Note 10.1 successor might also make an appearance, but equally it could come along in the following months as these days Samsung doesn’t stick tightly to big expos.
Also revealed in the leaks is the GT-P3200, believed to be a successor model to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, so a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 then.
The details are a little muddy on this as the UA profile shows a 1024x600 pixel resolution while accompanying GLBenchmarks show 1280x800 pixels.
Android 4.2.1 is the platform loaded onboard while the processor is clocked at 1.5GHz and an updated GPU which might be a Mali-400MP quad-core unit.
We’ll keep you posted with more details as they emerge whether that’s at Mobile World Congress or otherwise.
