References to a mysterious new Samsung mobile product have been spotted on the Samsung Developer Centre online, leading to wild speculation as to what the Koreans are lining up to launch next.
All we're told is that the resolution is 1280 x 768, which strongly suggests another new Galaxy Tab tablet is in the pipelines – possibly the 8.9in model that seems to have disappeared from view recently.
The 8.9in slate was shown off back in March, but we've heard very little about it since. And to be fair, even if the new product listing is for the mid-sized tablet, it doesn't leave us knowing a whole lot more now. Aside from the baseline resolution, we're also told the mystery product boasts a 16-million colour display – standard fare, that – and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
That last point has led to some speculation that the new product isn't a tablet at all but rather a big-screen smartphone with a super-high resolution, the logic being that a new tablet coming out at this point would surely arrive with Android Honeycomb on board.
We're sure all these questions will be answered in due course, but in the meantime it's at least reassuring to think that Samsung hasn't forgotten about its middle-child tablet completely.
