Samsung 13.3-Inch “Warhol” Tablet Will Have 2560 x 1600 Pixel Resolution

Those following the Samsung tablet saga might remember that back in 2013, there was talk suggesting that the Korean tech giant was working on a huge 13.3-inch tablet.

There was a lot of speculation regarding this matter, including whispers saying that the slate will be capable of dual-booting between Windows RT and Android. Now new information about Samsung’s mega-tablet project has appeared online. The folks over at GSMArena have managed to receive some new information about the 13.3-inch that is reportedly codenamed “Warhol”. Sources familiar with the matter have disclosed the tablet going by model number T911 for the 3G version and T910 for the Wi-Fi only variant. We should draw your attention to the “T,” which indicates that the tablet will probably pertain to the Samsung Galaxy Tab line-up and not the Galaxy Note, so that means that the tablet will arrive without an S Pen. For the time being, we know that Warhol will come with a 13.3-inch screen and boast a display resolution of 2560 x 1600. It also appears that the tablet will feature an LCD screen and not a Super AMOLED one like Samsung Galaxy Tab S.

Sadly, that’s all we can tell you about the slate, for now. We can speculate that Samsung is going to use one of its own Exynos processors to power the device, even in the 3G models. We already know that Sammy will implement its in-house chips and import modems from Intel for its 3G variants, when it comes to the AMOLED Galaxy Tab S. The 13.3-inch tablet has been in the news before, with different sources claiming that Samsung was gearing up to release a dual-boot Android/Windows RT tablet. Another interesting theory indicated the possibility that the company was looking to bring its defunct Ativ Q product back to life. This was a 13.3-inch convertible, which allowed users to boot between Windows 8.1 and Android, but the device never made it to the market.

Like in the case of the ASUS Transformer Book Duet, the Korean tech giant might have been faced with pressure coming from both Google and Microsoft and was forced to abandon the project or to postpone it indefinitely. Anyway, currently the status of dual-OS machines is quite uncertain, so most likely, Samsung’s mega-tablet will be focused on one operating system. We also don’t know when Samsung will announce the device, but there’s a slim chance that the 13.3-incher will be spotted at IFA 2014. As more information emerges, we will update you.
