Samsung to reveal 11.6in Galaxy Tab at Mobile World Congress?

We’re still getting used to the idea that Samsung might not launch the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress after all, but it might have another high-specced beast up its sleeve.

German site Tabtech reckons Samsung is planning to reveal a spanking new Galaxy Tab, with a mammoth 11.6in display. That’d make it the world’s biggest Android tablet, right?

Other rumoured specs for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6 include a 2GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor, and an eye-melting resolution of 2560x1600. The screen will also welcome stylus input.

The rumour is corroborated by Android and Me’s Taylor Wembley, who was asked to delete pictures he took of a prototype Exynos 5250-powered tablet at CES in Vegas. Said prototype had Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on board.

To be honest, we’d rather see the Samsung Galaxy S III. Also, this will be the fifth Galaxy Tab (7, 7.7, 8.9, 10.1 and now 11.6) from Samsung, adding to our concerns that Sammo might “do an HTC” in 2012.
