Samsung has been at the top when it comes to smartphones globally but it has struggled a bit when it comes to tablets. It is working constantly on changing that and it will be launching its Galaxy Tab S series of tablets to rival the Apple twins. But it also plans on launching a tablet over and above those with a 12-inch screen size which will have a resolution of whopping 4096 x 2160 pixels (4K) which is often known as Ultra HD in common parlance.
Samsung has begun the real world testing of the tablet and it was recently spotted at a Qualcomm event at the French Open 2014 in Paris where it was being used to showcase a LTE broadcast. The video broadcast had a resolution of merely 720p but what was interesting was that more windows could be pulled over it without loss of colour, thus giving an insight into the clarity of the tablet.
Not much details were disclosed about it but it is said that it runs on a Snapdragon 801 under the hood. The tablet was more of a prototype rather than a final unit. It is expected to sport a Snapdragon 805 when it hits the market and have a better video format support too.
Samsung wouldn't want the next flagship tablet to share limelight with the Tab S series of tablets on June 12th so it would hit the launchpad towards the end of the year in all likelihood. It is expected to play a party spoiler to the next generation iPad when it launches more than anything else.
