Think QHD displays are overkill? Think again. 4K is on its way, and now it’s been spotted in a prototype Samsung tablet. The tablet in question was 12-inches in size and was being used to demonstrate an LTE broadcast at the French Open. Specs of the tablet weren’t known, but Techradar who spotted it was told that it’s sporting a Snapdragon 801. We, however, would be surprised if a 4K tablet made it to market without the next-gen Snapdragon 805, which is designed to handle 4K.
Such a screen could be tempting for all the pixel hounds in the world, with a PPI density of nearly 400. Nonetheless, we’d rather that Samsung perfected the technology before bringing it to market, even if that means waiting a couple of months.
What are your thoughts on 4K tablets? Are they overkill?
