If reports around the web are anything to go by, Samsung Electronics is currently knee-deep in developing a tablet PC measuring a whopping 12 inches. If this rumoured tablet does live to see the light of the day, it will find itself among other similar sized tablets in Samsung’s line-up.

According to the Korea Economic Daily, this upcoming tablet is likely to use Samsung Display’s LCD panel with a resolution higher than full HD. While there is no confirmation on this yet, the industry expects its release to be before October 2013.

In June this year, Samsung unveiled its Windows 8-running Ativ Q tablet in the global market. As far as displays go, the Ativ Q has quite an impressive display of 13.3 inches and a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels, giving it a pixel density of 275 ppi. Samsung had claimed then that this is the highest resolution QHD display.
