Samsung may have a 2GHz Galaxy Tab 11.6 for Mobile World Congress

Samsung logoThough new rumors are suggesting that we won't see a Samsung Galaxy S II sucessor at next month's Mobile World Congress, it's pretty much guaranteed that Samsung will introduce something in Barcelona, Spain.

Yes, according to new rumors currently spreading across the Internet, Sammy instead will unveil a 2GHz dual-core Galaxy Tab instead.

Word of the device first surfaced in December when BGR reported on an alleged 11.6-inch tablet with a 2,560x1,600-pixel display resolution.

With a form factor said to be "barely larger" than its predecessor, the presumed Galaxy Tab 11.6 has a thinner bezel and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Taking a peek inside, the tablet should have a Samsung Exynos 5250 2GHz CPU, which is much more powerful than anything currently on the market.

Adding a bit of fuel to the fire, Android And Me reports that it was able to spend time with a prototype device earlier this month at CES in Las Vegas.

After taking a number of pictures of the tablet, however, Samsung asked the blog to delete the images. Although those actions aren't exactly confirmation of the tablet, Android And Me said that the device had a display larger than 10 inches and was running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Finally, there's also a report coming out of German site TabTech.de, which claims that Samsung will be announcing a Galaxy Tab 11.6 at Mobile World Congress.

What's more, the site claims that the tablet will include support for the same S-Pen technology that comes with the Galaxy Note. The image you see at the top of this article is a mockup created by TabTech and shows a slightly larger form factor, but with a much bigger display.

With less than one month before Mobile World Congress gets started, we can hope to see new details to trickle out. Should these rumors prove to be true, a tablet like this is going to be hard to keep secret. And if Samsung's history is any indication, then we'll likely see multiple storage capacities announced, perhaps 16GB, 32GB, or even 64GB models.
