BGR is reporting that one of their “trusted” sources has revealed to them an Android tablet of mythological proportions that will be most likely be unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February. This unicorn device will feature an 11.6-inch — ready for this? — 2560×1600 resolution display (that’s higher than 1080p) and feature a 16:10 aspect ratio. If 11.6-inches sounds way too big, the source mentioned that only the bezel would be shrinking for the most part, with the device size remaining largely the same as current 10.1-inch tablets.

Alright, now for the fun stuff: internals. Remember those new 5250 Exynos processors we told you Samsung was preparing for “high-end” tablets in 2012? Well, clocked at 2GHz, they will be put to good use in Samsung’s rumored tablet. Also on board is an NFC chip to compliment Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and make excellent use of the new Android Beam feature. Samsung is reportedly aiming for connectivity with televisions (their other bread and butter) offering a wireless docking mode for gaming on your HDTV.

What do you guys think? I’m sure we’ll see a lot of comments like “4 corez or GTFO” but remember, it’s about the architecture of the chip — not necessarily how many cores it has. I think Samsung has this processor thing down and even with only 2 cores, will give quads a run for their money. Can’t wait for next year.
