Samsung is a big name when it comes to smartphones, but it’s been a while since we saw a mobile device running Windows from the company. It doesn’t mean the company has abandoned Windows as an operating system for its devices. If a new rumor is to be believed, the Korean company is reportedly working on a 12-inch tablet which will ship with the newly released Windows 10 operating system (via SamMobile).
Microsoft released the new Windows 10 operating system, which has received a warm welcome from users across the globe. The operating system is apparently running on over 50 million devices with the Redmond-based company aiming to make sure it on a billion devices in the next few years.
The rumor surfaced from China where a Weibo user, who has leaked benchmarks for other mobile devices in the past, has revealed more information about the 12-inch tablet. As per the leak, the alleged device is said to come with a 12-inch display with a resolution of either 2,560 by 1,440 pixels or 3,840 by 2,440 pixels.
The processing will be apparently handled by the fanless Intel Core M processor paired with 4GB of RAM and S Pen features which were released with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Furthermore, the alleged tablet will be 6.2 mm thin and will weigh 600 grams. If it turns out to be true, we may get to see a Surface Pro rival in the market, provided the rumors pans out.
There’s no official confirmation from the folks at Samsung, and there won’t be any until the official launch time comes. However, if it exists, there’s a possibility we may get to see it ahead of its launch, thanks to the rumor mill. But until then, we’ll recommend users to take it as a rumor. We’ll update you as soon as we hear anything more about the alleged Windows tablet from Samsung.
