Samsung Working On 11.8-Inch ‘P10’ Tablet With Retina Display

Court documents disclosed in the Apple vs. Samsung trial continue to glean intriguing information about future plans for Samsung, the most recent being that the Korean company is working on a new tablet codenamed “P10” that will sport a screen with a pixel density high enough to qualify as a Retina display.

It will apparently be one of the largest tablets on the market, but its screen size, combined with its resolution, are going to give it a ppi of 256, officially qualifying it as a Retina display.

Samsung was initially rumored to unveil a large, high-res tablet at the Mobile World Congress Tradeshow in February of this year, which obviously never happened, so it’s possible that device was the P10 and it was simply delayed. The court documents refer to it as a 2012 product, so hopefully it will get a reveal before the year’s end, perhaps at Samsung’s upcoming event — which is supposedly for a revised Galaxy Note 10.1 — in New York in mid-August.
