2GHz dual core Galaxy Tab debuting at MWC?

There’s some really big news hovering around as the Mobile World Congress draws closer.  Though the Galaxy S III might not pop up, we might have a chance to see a new Galaxy Tab and this one is going to have a dual core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor. As part of the specs, the device is also rumoured to have a display, which is greater than 10 inches with a WXQGA resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Naturally, it will be running Android 4.0.x.

Galaxy Tab 8.9, smaller but just as powerful

10.1? 8.9? 11.6? Can you guess?



As reported by Android and me, there’s definitely some steam about this new rumour as one of the Samsung prototype tablets at CES already had an Exynos 5250 chipset and was running on Android 4.0. Let’s roll back the time a little – to last year’s Mobile World Congress. The Galaxy S II and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 were showcased at that time. This time around there are rife chances that the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be displayed. Also, it’s not like Samsung hasn’t announced the 2GHz processor; it was announced in November, last year. As part of the specs, it’s going to have their new low power technology with a 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HK/MG) and a new GPU – the Mali – T604.


As far as the tablet is concerned, there are some chances that the tablet could sport an 11.6-inch display. We’re not too sure if that’s really what we were so eager to hear. Obviously, a better GPU, a faster processor and a different screen size - isn’t Samsung assuming this to be their new success mantra for their smartphones and tablets? From what we counted last, there’s a 5.3-inch, 7 inch, 7.7-inch, 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch and we won’t be surprised to see a few more models fitted in there, like a 5.5 inch, 7.87 inch, 9.821-inch, 19.5-inch, 28.2-inch and so on. Okay, giving the customers an extra option is definitely good, but is just modifying the display size, along with a few improvements here and there good enough? We’re not too sure if we’d be overly excited about that. What do you guys think?
