Featured: Samsung GT-P8110 Tablet visits the FCC with a 11.8-inch Display

August 10, 2012 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’ve been hearing rumors lately that Samsung is working on a 11.8-inch tablet with a stunning 2560×1600 resolution. Strangely enough, a new Samsung Tab has just made its appearance at the FCC accompanied by the Galaxy Note 10.1. The FCC document which was filed on Tuesday doesn’t reveal much more than what we pretty much already knew about this tablet. But we do know it’ll have 16GB of internal Storage along with the usual features of WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC. What’s interesting about this is that the design looks completely different from Samsung’s other tabs like the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Note 10.1 (which is on its way to the US).

So you know that big Samsung and Apple trial that’s going on right now? Yeah some internal documents showed off a tablet going by the codename P10 and is featuring a 11.8-inch display at this same resolution as this tablet that is at the FCC. So maybe the P10 has turned into the P8110? As far as software goes, I’d bet it’s running Ice Cream Sandwich, although I’d be more than happy to be wrong if its running Jelly Bean and the latest version of Touchwiz.

Now the big question is, how well will this tablet sell when you have other options like the Nexus 7, and the new Amazon Kindle Fire which should be announced soon. What about pricing on this almost 12-inch beast? I’d expect around the same as what the iPad is selling for. As we always do, we’ll bring you more information on this new Samsung tablet as soon as we get it. We’re hoping it doesn’t take as long to get to the US as the Galaxy Note 10.1 did.
