Samsung said to be prepping new tablet with super high-res 13.3-inch display

Lately the rumor mill has been churning with reports about two new Samsung tablets, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5, which will reportedly feature 2560×1600 AMOLED displays. Now a new report claims that those aren’t the only high-res Android tablets Samsung’s got cooking in its kitchen.

A source speaking to GSMArena says that Samsung is working on a new tablet that features a whopping 13.3-inch display at a resolution of 2560×1600. The device, said to be codenamed “Warhol,” will reportedly feature an LCD display rather than the AMOLED panel found on its high-res counterparts. The device is expected to arrive in Wi-Fi-only (T910) and 3G (T911) variants.

It’s not often that we see tablets larger than 10 inches hit the market, but there have been a couple in recent years. Samsung recently took the wraps off of 12.2-inch NotePRO and TabPRO slates, and Toshiba once launched a 13.3-inch tablet of its own.

Now Samsung appears to be making “bigger is better” its new motto. Obviously a tablet with a 13.3-inch screen won’t be the most portable device around, but for those folks that love to sit on their couch and watch TV shows or movies on their tablet, this new 13.3-inch Samsung slate could be worth keeping an eye on.

Today’s report also claims to have a couple of additional details on the aforementioned Galaxy Tab S tablets. It’s said that the 8.4-inch model is codenamed “Klimt” and will be available in Wi-Fi-only (T700) and 3G (T701) variants. Meanwhile, the 10.5-incher may be codenamed “Chagall” and could also be offered in Wi-Fi-only (T800) and 3G (T801) flavors.

What do you think of today’s leak? Would you be interested in a new tablet from Samsung with a super high-res 13.3-inch display?

    When is this tablet supposed to be released?

      dunno, but with 13.3inches it has to be black!

    I just bought the NotePro 12.2. It is already too big (and very heavy). I use it for annotating PDF files while being able to view two facing pages at the same time.

    There is another 13″ device out there by HANNSPREE. It is a 13.3-inch quad core. At least one buyer was so impressed, he did a video review of it.

    When we want bigger screen than my 10″ Android tablet, either (preferred) Chromecast if supported app, or use the tablet’s HDMI port and I use bluetooth mouse and bluetooth keyboard to remotely drive the tablet from the couch. Then I got a $300 36″ LCD screen to complement the $300 10″ tablet.

    still feel like 8-8.4 is the sweet spot. Having owned 7 inchers and 10 inchers my feeling is the 8 inchers are the best feel, fit, screen size, and resolution I long for.
