For last couple of years, the worldwide battle between Samsung and Apple does not seems to die down. Apple has been claiming that Samsung imitates the design of iPad and iPhone in its Galaxy range of tablets and smartphone respectively. That’s why Samsung had to redesign its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany due to sales ban.
From an exclusive source by BGR, it’s identified that the Korean giant Samsung has planed to launch the new version of its “Galaxy Tab” Tablet with 11.6 inch screen at the Mobile World Congress in February 2012. Indeed, It’s the beginning of the war; the company has planned to challenge Apple’s upcoming iPad 3 in the market.
The another rumor states that Apple would release its iPad 3—having retina display with resolution of 2560 x 1600px- in February next year. Also, upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab with 11.6 inch screen and high resolution is scheduled to launch in the same period. It’s estimated that the retina display featured iPad 3 would have twice the resolution compare to its previous iPad 2. It’s been recommended that users should not worry about the Galaxy Tab 11.6 which would have much larger size- designed to suit customers.
Recently, Samsung has announced that the company has designed a next generation Exynos system-on-chip (SoC)—dual core Exynos 5250—and also has claimed that the speed of the said processor is twice faster compare to previous 1.5GHZ Cortex-A9 processors.
Instead of 2 GHz speed processor, Exynos 5250 would also have four times faster on Graphics front and would support higher resolution display up to 2560 X 1600 pixels. It’s quite clear that the resolution expected in Exynos 5250 is much higher than anything in the market at present. However, the company has planned to introduce the dual core Exynos 5250 in the second half of 2012 – might be with Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6.
Obviously, screen size of 11.6-inch, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform, 2560 X 1600 pixel screen resolutions with 16:10 aspect ratio would make its a beast in Tablet market. Besides all these, the tablet would have the feature of Android Beam for easy syncing of Media with Galaxy Nexus along with special wireless docking mode that is especially designed for gaming on HDTVs. The intention of the company is quite clear; Samsung wants to contend Apple TV and more devices in the market.
After analyzing the whole scenario, it’s pretty clear that Samsung might not forget Apple’s maneuver in battlefield on the design copy issues. The company had lost much in the legal war and it’s time to teach a lesson to the rival. Undoubtedly, Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 11.6 Tablet is not weak by any stretch compare to its rival’s iPad 3.
